Interestingly, even i lost my rear left mudflap on a Delhi - Pune drive. Any common issue to be worried about
Will be going to the service center next week to get a new one. I am not sure they will sell just one flap though.

As far as i know they wont sell it as a single piece. You have to buy it as set. The SA will told you to keep the rest for next time . My colleague bought it as a set when he broke one. but i dont remember the price though.

You can try in some accessories shop to get a single piece.

Thanks guys. I checked the Ford accessories price list somebody had posted last year at it says Rs 510 for a set. Might be around Rs 550 now I guess. I believe you need to order a full set.

The local accessories shop also says one needs to buy a full set, and it costs around Rs 450. I think those are not the hard ones that Ford sells.

Looks like lots of guys are stuck up with a stock of unwanted flaps.

You all can exchange the left over mudflaps within yourself and find the replacement for your broken ones

To save myself from this agony, I never thought of putting the mudflaps from the beginning itself.

Also, you can cut and grind the existing mudflaps to make it shorter. This would prevent it over scraping and breaking.

I'm not too sure if the Ford mudflaps are that cheap now. I got just the front 2 replaced at Fortune Ford 3 months back, and I paid some 700 odd including fitting charges. When I asked them about the entire set, they confirmed a figure around 1K. I still have the bill with me.

Wow, that's steep! Perhaps a 'set' means a pair of flaps, in which case the price I quoted may be correct.

May I ask why you went for Ford mudflaps when there are softer and cheaper ones around?

Anyone interested could take a look at this. Please notice that the image provided is a generic one. Please talk to the seller and take a look at the ORIGINAL mudflaps and then take a call.

I do NOT know the quality of these, so take a plunge after trying to get a bit more details around it.

I had gone to some local accessories shop to install the mudflaps, and didn't quite like the finish of the rubber ones. They were priced around 450/- for a set of 4. The real reason was that, to install these flaps, you will need to drill holes in the metal in the wheel arch to secure the screws while the Ford OEM ones do not require that and is a clip-on type. I was not too comfortable with them drilling the sheet metal, hence opted out.

The the link that swiftnfurious posted also shows a set of screws in one of the images, and that would need drilling of the metal to install the set.

Buddy, they use the same pic for ~10 different cars. Please do check their store to understand what I say. In reality, it may not have the screws, especially since they mention "O.E Original". A lot of these guys source the OEM stuff from the same vendors (as the company), but without the branding on the products. When you go to the dealer, you sometimes get the same stuff with the logo at a higher price. You could contact the dealer & ask for REAL pics of the item and then opt for buying or not. All these, if you are OK to take the extra trouble.

Else just pass it.

Yeah, I didn't check their store. They might be using a generic image. Will check with them the next time I need a replacement. Wonder why the local stores are not stocking this when Figos are known to have this problem of mud flap breakage. That too after being a very popular car for more than 3 years.

not quite sure about the completeness of this article, but quite disconcerting for FORD owners :

Am I surprised? No way
This is the exact same problem that I faced about 2 months back. I did a trip to Ooty and the next day, the coolant tank was empty. With so much trust on Ford A.S.S (due to my previous experiences), I decided to tackle the problem myself and topped up the coolant reservoir myself. After that, I have done multiple long trips (BLR-CLT-BLR) and after two months, the coolant level is still good. I don't know whether the problem is with the TDCi engine or the coolant the A.S.S put inside or something else.
I have to take the car again to the A.S.S because my car exhibits a peculiar problem. The AC completely cuts off sometimes and does not cool the air at all. This happens at random and it becomes quite irritating. It's not the fuse and I suspect that it might be a problem with the compressor clutch. When this problem occurs, the compressor clutch does not engage, but the light on the AC button comes ON. (I can infer this behaviour from the engine as it runs free, even when I press the AC button.) As the summer is approaching, I need to get this fixed on a priority basis. But as this does not happen every time, I don't know whether the A.S.S will be able to find a solution.

Did the 40000 km service on my figo petrol at Chennai Ford - Amabattur. Engine oil was changed (4.1 lit @ Rs.220 + tax) along with usual items like filters and spark plug.

In addition the drive belt set (Rs.2250 + tax) and link assembly- frt stab bar (2 * Rs.1010 + tax) were changed.

Total - Rs.9189/-

Got delivery late in the evening and wash quality was below average.

Staff were courteous and service experience was good.

How often have you seen the DTE meter of your Figo behaving like this?

I dont think it is anything to worry about, but just wanted to share. This happened in Manali this weekend and the temp must have been around 1-2 C

Hi Raju,

If I may ask, what was the problem with the above 3 components that warranted replacements. What were the symptoms?
