Question Re: Zen and the art of maintaining it

Hi,

I am facing a problem with the lever controlling the turning indicator lights/dimmer/headlights. It is a 1999 Zen. While using the dimmer recently, I felt the spring action inside weaken.

Now, when I use the indicators (up and down action), then the dimmer gets stuck at high beam. If i try to switch on the headlights (knob rotation action), then also the dimmer comes into play.

Should I change the full lever control set? Planning to go to the M.A.S.S, hence want to understand this before hand, lest am taken for a ride.

Hi, you should definitely go for whole column change, it doesn't cost much anyway(couple of thousand at best). These things are anyway not repairable and could be a fire hazard also(happened with our M800).

I would like to know if 2 tone horns (2 separate or single unit) can be fitted to the existing OEM horn connections WITHOUT the use of a relay in the old (type 1) Zen. Also, any recommendations if any (as per better sound)?

You cannot fit Dual tone horns without relay. All our zen's comes with single unit horn. You can go for Hella twin tone (Trumpet) aka Skoda horn.

Thanks. I tried both options with hella disc type double horns and the sound output was much more crisp with a relay. Hence got the same installed; both horns behind g the grill (OEM position) rather than drilling and dragging wires around. Even a short beep gets the job done now 📢📢
