As for the door, do you hear anything when you open and shut it? If not, then its not the hinges but somewhere else.
No squeaking when the doors are open and shut; so yes, can rule out hinges. Will check the seats, but I think it is not the seats, but something with the pillar between front and rear doors, or something else in the door area.... because the sound originates from a high area, near my right ear, not below me....

Want to try to fix it myself first if possible before going to TASS for such a minor thing.

The squeak source being close to my right ear when driving, is quite annoying...
Any pointers to what I can do to address this?

Could be door alignment when closed and the lock not tight enough..

Could it be the seat belt harness, i.e. the metal widget through which the seat belt loops and comes down?

Cheers,
Vikram

Thanks for pitching in, but dont think it is the seat belt harness - this sound is more from something heavy - squeeakky - ky ky ky - squeaky ky ky ky... ky ky...

If it is door alignment,, have to go to TASS then..

Ditto. I had that noise. Turned out the seat belt harness at the top to adjust its length was hitting the pillar/plastic panel. You can slide it up and down to adjust length- has a red color lock button on it. Take it fully up (or down, if already up) and drive. Sound will go away. Spray some WD-40 inside to keep it quite. But, I think the best thing would be to strip the plastic panel and cushion the clamp with some foam for permanent fix.

I had another sound- the right ORVM used to do khrrrr... khrrr... on bad roads, sounded like door rattle. The ORVM is fixed on its mount using three nuts arranged in a triangle. One of these had slipped and another one had broken base. Don't know how/why? Did a jugaad (DIY)- changed the slipped screw and filled the broken base with m-seal. Noise is gone for now. I am told ORVM costs 5k + painting? :(

^^ Thanks a lot friends. You were right, it was the seat belt harness, and I was always thinking it is something in the door. Taken care now.

Some queries regarding my beast. Hope other Safari owners can help me out.

The leather on the steering wheel is peeling off at the bottom. TASS has promised to change the entire steering wheel. I'm thinking, lets just get a proper leather steering wheel cover done from elsewhere. Any idea about the costs involved?

Sometimes I sorely feel the lack of a clock on the center panel. Anybody out there with any after market fittings?

Learned another lesson

If you dont have EW, go to your friendly workshop ! Just paid 7500Rs as labor charge for 90k service and some work!

Total bill at 22k approx.

This is a known issue with the Safari steering wheel and like you said, TASS usually replaces it FOC within warranty.

A faux leather cover should cost you around 500.00INR whereas a real leather cover from a branded place would set you back by around 2000.00INR.

Plates are not covered, but Master and slave cylinders are covered under extended warranty.
Anyways, for now, you can change the entire clutch as a set rather than going piece by piece.
It costs 12000rs.

Wont all this be changed (master + slave) during a full clutch replacement?


Else, how much would it cost for slave/master cylinder replacement?

Some luck!

Yes, I think the full clutch set does include master and slave cylinders, but cost including labor would be around 15000 I think.
Again, not sure!

Thanks guys.
I have exactly same issue with my truck. My brakes (disks/pads) are in good condition too. TASS told me that it is the issue with suspension bush(s) on the rear that get worn out.

Oh. In my case, the service technician who took the car for the long test drive, told me that it is the front disks (probably slightly warped or something to that effect) which cause the juddering at high speed.

The same issue causes the truck to jerk sometimes when you shift gears. I checked this issue with two different technicians at different times. They both diagnosed the issue as a suspension problem.

Ok. My issue - I hope is only with the front disks as I have run only about 16000 km till now. It is too early for the suspension bushes to play up as most of the run was in highways.
