How did I miss the note on the ABS! Classic! This should definitely go to the jokes thread!

Who is this someone, is it a Service Advisor? If so, you should specifically Report this guy for giving totally incorrect & misleading information. Seriously

No, It was no different but the switch operation was very smooth. I could select each and every position without effort. That was great. Hope to get it in my car soon.

Default Clutch pressure gauge reading at 14.4

Just returned from Concorde Motors, Mysore Road, with the clutch pressure gauge being used to check the clutch force/leverage. It read 14.4. And yes, as confirmed by other members here, anything beyond 18 qualifies for a clutch assembly change.
On casting my displeasure on the way in which the reading is generated, ie. with a sudden pressure applied all the way to the bottom of the clutch, i was then told to operate it, in my own way, (ie. gradually apply pressure on the clutch pedal, when the resistance is felt somewhere in between the clutch travel) on other Safari's in the service bay . They felt nearly the same, and i have come to accept it as "normal". Will take a second opinion anyways, at my regular place of service, sometime in future.

Default Engine noise

I can hear engine noise more prominently once I cross ~2000 rpm/100 kmph.This is especially very audible when all the windows are rolled up.The engine sounds strained once I cross 100 kpmh.I know it's a diesel and it's supposed to make noise ,but just wanted to know if this threshold remains for others as well.

All the other indicators are ok i.e. mileage,no smoke,acceleration etc.

Don't! Would never advocate fiddling with the brakes, especially when we do not have access to well experience after market specialist in this.

Default Air circulation mode switch

Got my safari back after 30k service, I had complained about the difficulty in operating the air circulation mode switch, I don't know what they did, but now it is relatively easier to operate across all modes.
Another thing I noticed is the clutch pedal is now very light when compared to it's condition pror to service.

@lodhra: A small crack on the windshield is not something to worry about, unless the crack increases gradually over a period of time. You could take the car in to Windshield Experts for an opinion, and they sometimes repair such cracks with an epoxy-based compound, preventing the crack from expanding further.

Not sure about the "plastic-like noise" that you report. Could be because of a nylon / rubber bush related to the steering or suspension components. It could also be due to a badly fitted engine/sump guard, which rubs somewhere when going over rough roads.

Please also spell-check before posting to avoid the innumerable typo and spelling errors. Makes reading & understanding your posts difficult at times.

My safari too have a small crack for past 14 months. All i did is put fevi-quick and uses cello tape - both from inside and outside.

I too had taken to wind shield experts. they said while repairing, there is a 5% chance that the crack may expand, in that event one has to change the glass. I opted not to do the same.

My desi jugad is working fine.

As for the noise did you check for tyre scrapping on bumper ?

Are you sure it is engine noise that you are hearing? Given its wonderful aerodynamics Safari is prone to a lot of 'wind noise' (which translates to cabin noise with windows rolled up) at speeds on the higher side of 100 kmph.
