The horn on my Figo gave away before 10k kms! Got it checked at the service centre where they only repaired it stating there was a tuning issue. In a few weeks it stopped working again, this time when I was at Nashik! I was furious and got an after market horn fitted which is working fine since! No issues with warranty as the service centre guys don't realize the change since there are no wiring changes.

Got updates from dad that the car is repaired now and service center charged him Rs. 700 for the repair work of 1 day.

I had this issue before 2 years. It was tuned and no issues after that. I guess it is a tuning issue, get it checked again. I am very happy with Figo OEM horn compared to Swift. I have gone for a after market fitment for Swift as with OEM no one in the road bothers.

Guess you have the dual horn setup which comes as OEM pre 2012 batch. Now Figo comes with a single horn which sounds too weak that even a two wheeler horn sounds better compare to that.

Changing the bush in my car took hardly half an hour at PVS Ford, Kannur. It cost the same, 692/- to be exact.

Saw the Mars red Figo & a mars red Ecosport side by side, they were getting washed at a workshop (Tolichowki, Hyderabad) & they look the same.

There may be a very slight difference but I could not notice it. I did check them from a close distance.

Do check your Engine Oil level using the dipstick on a cold engine.
I checked the engine oil level using the dipstick on a cold engine & the level is normal.

Took it to the service station & the SA said its working ok, the issue is once the engine is hot this does not happen. The delay in the engine oil indicator flashing late on ignition & going off after engine start happens only a cold engine.

Could this be serious?

I got the 40,000KM service done.

Service Bill came to Rs 4,059.

This included Parts and Labour

Parts ->

Air Filter
Oil Filter
Engine Oil
Sump Gasket
Spark Plugs (I feel this was a waste ) 400Rs total for this
Brake oil (Huge Waste) - 600Rs for just Dot4 brake oil


Labor cost
Service cost 1,200 + 150 for general consumables and + hamara taxes

Overall, Not bad service, Car was delivered on time washed and clean.

I was advised to change the following ->
Brake pads and Discs.
Decided to push it a bit more as my pads were replaced at 10,000 KM And now at 35,000 - Just 25,000 KM Pads ? I feel its a bit too early?


The top Brake light (the one on the boot) was fused.
Told them to ignore this for now.
F.A.S.S asked me if I wanted to get this bulb replaced. Cost of the bulb -> Rs 600

I will try and find this bulb outside and fix it myself.
Any Bhpian does this before?

Changing the bulb of the overhead stop lamp is fairly simple. The bulb will cost you around 40-50 bucks. It just involves carefully wrenching out the entire assembly. I guess the manual has instructions on how to do this.

You changed your brake pads at 10K? Any particular reason? I have a ZXI with 23K and noise in the front when I brake - I asked the guys to check and they told me pads are thinning but should be okay till the next service which is the 30 or 40K service. There are small markings on the disks I was told and that it should be okay to run for another 10k or so with them - then replace both pads and disks if the noise does not go away (when braking) after first replacing the pads.
Incidentally, one (out of 4) of the bolts (for lack of a better word) in the section which holds the rear brakes together was missing in my latest service and they replaced it. Do these bolts just fall off like that? There were no tell-tale signs that it was abused.

Manual does not have instructions. I have done this myself, so here are the instructions.

1. Open hatch (duh!!)
2. Remove the 2 round black rubber covers you see at the top - they cover 2 holes. See pic.
3. Take a long screw driver, and stick it in the holes, while shining a torch in it
4. Press the screwdriver in, until you can feel/see that it hits a metal clip
5. Press the metal clip in while pushing the HMSL outwards - that will open the whole assembly once you do it on both sides. A bit of brute force is needed here.
6. Take out the bulb, go to local spares shop, buy new bulb, fix it in place (how many T-BHPians does it take to screw in a light bulb?!?! )
7. Re-assemble

It was replaced under warranty at 10,000 KM as my car was one of the earlier batch of Figo's. It had a very noisy brakes.

Thank you Alpha, I will give it a try during the weekend. The Manual mentions a W16W bulb. I am guessing this is a 16W bulb.

Check the Car Vin no and validate if this is really a 2012 car and check the vehicle history with the ASS to make sure there were no accidents or major repairs done to the car.
Something around 5L would be really sweet, If the owner doesn't agree then Settle for 5.1-5.2L

I think the car checks out okay, shouldn't be a problem, but will visit the center anyway. This is bangalore mate, 5L and I probably have to steal it!

Today I tried my level best and it wouldn't budge! All I managed to do was make a small ding and scratch near the hole.
