Please read this thread and also search the forum thoroughly. In most cases it is unwarranted. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ml#post1605931 (SCAM Alert "Saar, your car needs a clutch overhaul")

Gave my Figo for 40K service @ Talera Ford yesterday. Had complained of a Shock absorber issue (Front RHS). Today the SA calls up and says there's a leakage and will need to be replaced but there's NO warranty. I'm sure there has been no underbody hits and they didnt find any during the underbody inspection. Is the leakage not covered under warranty? Then, what do they mean by Shock absorber covered under warranty..... If not covered, should I change the whole thing or just a strut or something - need avice

(sorry if this is being discussed elsewhere, but couldnt really find any such thread ...)

I was going through my extended warranty document. Yes, the suspension parts are not covered in warranty, at least not in the extended warranty.

You might be better off taking a second opinion regarding the shock absorber from any FNG. At least you'll know if indeed there is a leakage.

One thing I realized about Ford service is that, if you point out an issue, after warranty period, they will do some basic checking of that part in front of us, and conclude that the part IS faulty. In fact, it may not be faulty at all.
Like Shipnil suggested, do visit a outside garage you know and get a second opinion.
You can also visually check for a leak by turning steering full lock and using a torch to check for leaks on the damper. It is the damper that will have to be replaced, if at all it is faulty.

It has been used sparingly and within the city completely. ODO shows 3.5Kms and I have done the first free service at around 1.5 KMs (I guess it has only one free service ?)

Is the above FE is normal or should I take this to Service Center ? Appreciate fellow owners suggestions, comments, advice
This is with 100% Aircon on right? That is all you will get under heavy b2b traffic. This is what our car gives. Max we have got is 9.5 under such conditions.

Our car has done close to 34,000 KM or so and so far no disc replacement, the brake pads were replaced at around 6,000KM or so (under warranty). Nothing after that.

Can anyone here guide me to the air filter location in the car? Also can I just open it, easily or I need some tools for it?

It's under the engine cover (plastic), you'll need to remove that and access the air filter compartment. Here's a pic http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offici...ml#post2934854

Thanks alot man, I tried it, was able to open the cover but the air filter cover needed a different type of screw driver, which sadly I didn't had. So, i'll have to get one now.

No , no brake disk replacement in my Figo yet. Brake Pads I am not too sure.

It requires torque screw driver. Size T25 to be precise. Head to any electronics parts store and buy replaceable head screw driver. You can check if T25 is one of the sizes.

A request for the face-lifted Figo Owners with Steering Stalk mounted audio controls:

Can you post a picture of the page from your Audio System manual which explains the Rear connection of your head unit? I am trying to understand which pins are used for the wires that run from the steering audio controls.

Mine is a pre-face-lift Figo and here is what my manual says:

Noticed this recently on my 1.2 .
I was washing the car and when water is poured on the windshield,it flows through a gap were the right wiper arm begins or the hinge from were it can be made to stand up.
I could hear the water falling on the ground as well through that gap.

Yesterday when i was clearing some droppings on the glass with the engine running,i could notice thick steam escaping under the bonnet which is when i realized the water from the windshield falls straight onto the header or catcon which is the hottest part of the exhaust system.
So during heavy rains,this happens always . Is this how it is for everyone or am i missing some piece that prevents water from falling onto to the header.

Regards

Guys, I am planning to get illuminated skid plates, on my Figo, now my question to you all is, can later ford decline my warranty? If I install one from outside shop, or I am better off with the non illuminated one?

Thanks. That's surprising though. I was expecting some additional pin mapping for the Wired remote (steering stalk controls)
