If you have a gps dashboard base, just stick it before the MID on the top, where the surface is smooth.


Stick it on the smooth surface before this (preferably, towards the left side of the display):


Once the base is stuck, you can use the windshield mount as a dashboard mount. Before sticking the base, just attach your windshield mount to the base and find out the best position on the dash, so that, it won't obstruct your view to the MID.

I had been using this since a year, and I don't have any problems using the windshield mount.

The price for the i20 engine parts can be called astronomical at the least. Damaged my intercooler for turbo in a small accident last week. The replacement of the part is costing me Rs.42000/-. Also, I have had a few wires cut. Hyundai says the wiring comes only as a whole kit and the wiring kit would cost me Rs. 40000/-.

82k in repair costs?!! That is truly astronomical. Maybe you should just wait for the warranty period to get over and replace the damaged wires locally. Of course if you have extended warranty, it is a different story.

Total repair labour cost has been estimated at 30k ( there are other damages too). I am not too much bothered on this part, since That would be covered by insurance. What worries me is that insurance covers only 50 % of my wiring and intercooler costs.

Even Labour costs are on higher side.

Another question. Were these parts readily available at work shop

This is what I did to my i20 yesterday night when I was carrying some plants and loose soil in flower pots. The boot is all ruined
Can anyone suggest what to do in this situation?

Please note that the soil has spilled under the back seat as well. Can the 3M guys fix this or there's some other way I can get this done?

Well for start, I can think of a basic Vacum cleaner to take out the mud.
Hope you have access to a power point.

:-)

I regularly (under continued threat of violence from my better half) ferry such stuff back from various nurseries. Trick is to lay out newspapers or opened out plastic packets at the bottom AND jam the pots super-tight using whatever stuff you find to ensure that they will NOT move during the journey back.

Anyways, let it dry completely and then use an industrial-grade vacuum cleaner to get it out. The industrial ones are extremely powerful - may as well do the rest of your interior as well :-) Any remaining stains will have to be done the old fashioned way.

Further, does the rear seat base of the i20 come off completely? It probably does because in our petrol Getz, the fuel tank motor was underneath and the pipe mounted on the top started leaking. The Hyundai technician quickly undid some clamps and took of the entire seat base to access the fuel tank cover/motor. Do that first and vacuum away!

I've only seen these kind of estimates on cars worth 10L+. For a Hyundai hatchback it's absurd. Our Santro is being serviced by one local mechanic and his bill is usually 70% less than the company quotes.

Maybe not the wiring, but doesn't the warranty cover the intercooler? Unless ofcourse you've run out of warranty.

Well this came to my mind as well. Unfortunately I stay on 7th Floor and there ain't any power point near the parking.

lol. thanks for the suggestion. Will make sure to do this next time I'm carrying this kind of stuff again.

I guess the rear seats do come off but I don't want to do this on my own. Just spoke to 3M guys and sent them the pictures over whatsapp (talk of technology). They confirmed that they can do it but the cost is on a higher side. I, for now am weighing my options as I didn't find the industrial-grade vacuum cleaner that you suggested. Anyone from pune (magarpatta area) knows about someone with this vacuum pump?

Visit - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/other-...care-pune.html (Sagar Auto Care - Pune) and they should be able to vacuum it out for you. Do give your car a good wash as well.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the suggestion. I stay in Magarpatta so going all the way to kothrud was practically impossible for me. Will visit this place the nest time my car needs a good wash.
Visited the 3M magarpatta instead yesterday and got my interiors done by them. As suggested by "itwasntme", they did take off the back seats completely and i'm very satisfied with the job done although had to shell out a lot more money
