Guys, Any idea on the cost of wheel bearings for the front and the rear? Asking this as I believe they are shared with the fiesta that I have.

A.S.S said that part highlighted in yellow is the assembly that needs to be changed and it costs ~12000. Luckily its covered in extd warranty but I still cant comprehend why it costs so much, it seems more like a hose pipe with some form of plunger. Anyways the car is stuck at dealership as the part rarely fails and not in stock. Hopefully I get the car back by weekend.

In a friends 1.4 Figo the same thing happened. Unfortunately for him he did not have extended warranty and had to pay for this.
If my memory serves me right then this is called the Diesel pump? Is this what the service adviser told you?

Yes you are right, this is the fuel plunger/pump. I guess this is to pump fuel incase tank goes empty.

For an ABS model, the rear ones cost around 8 K each. Not sure of the front, but I'm sure they are a lot cheaper.


Meanwhile, I wanted to ask regarding the average life of front brake pads on the Figo. My car has covered 32 K so far and brakes well. But in the 30 K service in Feb, the report showed the front pads in yellow and the S.A. had recommended replacement, which I refused. This was because my Fiesta's front pads and disks were changed at 47 K on the odo.

But ever since then, I am beginning to imagine that the brakes are a bit spongy. Is it a good idea to replace them now? I believe there is a 10% discount offer running this week.

I had the same experience. Just got my car from 30K servicing today. In addition to the usual stuff the recommendations they have were
  • Brake pads worn out - I refused as I have a trusted neighbourhood garage for the same. On my Ikon they changed at 25K and later then 2nd lot lasted another 40K km without any issues. Will check at trusted garage and let you know
  • Front suspension tie rods - I had complained about suspension noise during 20K service which they didnt resolve and now at 30K said the tie rods need replacement. Again i refused. Will decide later
  • Battery replacement - This probably would be needed soon but Ford OEM batt has gotten really expensive, about 1K more than Amaron from batterywala
  • Fuel filter change - I let them change this one given quality of our fuels. NOt sure what was the reco on user manual. Costed about 1K.
  • 5th extd warranty is available now on Figo - MIght choose that once I know the price. This service they replaced leaking fuel plunger which costed 12K and covered in warranty. Paid for my ext warranty cost.

I got the front right and rear right replaced. My car has ABS in it as well. The cost excluding labour was 2800/- for rear and 1800/- for front. The rear bearing that came out was made in Spain.

That's great! Surprisingly I was quoted around 8 K for my left rear wheel bearing. Some other members also posted that it costs as much for an ABS model---the posts are there on this thread in Feb, 2015.

Didnt get the logic of why ABS model costs more?

To add,
After filling the diesel (into the empty tank) at the fuel station, one needs to pump this bulb (seen in manual blood pressure gauges) till the injector is loaded with diesel and ready to spray (Diesel tank -> Lift pump -> Diesel filter ->Injector/Nozzle).

Initially, pumping will be easy and slowly it will become hard indicating the pump is getting loaded. This is done in case of engine not starting because of airlock.

Saw the coolant temp touch 106c today in stop/go traffic.
The high temp warning did not come on. I turned off the AC when I saw it hit a 100 and it still climbed.
Did not hear the fan after turning off the AC., probably it was spinning at the low speed.

No changes felt while driving, but I was wondering how is high okay on the 1.2 engine.

I had taken my 65K run figo D to change the engine oil at a aftermarket garage. I get the engine oil changed usually at 5K instead of the 10K mandated by Ford.

Post draining the engine oil the mechanic pointed out the following points.

1. The left strut is leaking and looks like it needs to be changed. I think it needs to be changed in pairs, is this wear and tear normal? The right strut looks OK.


2. The right drive shaft is leaking oil so the seal needs to be checked.The left one looks OK.


3. The power steering seems to be leaking too.


4. The aux pulley has micro cracks and needs to be replaced.


Is this normal wear and tear? Any pointers on the expected financial outlay?

Does that all the time. The 1.2 petrol engine really does not like stop go traffic at all! Its response is poorer after 5 km of typical Bangalore B2B commuting.

hey Folks, I have been getting some really nasty creaking sound from the front suspension for the last 10k kms. Sound mainly comes when I go over a bump aggressively and there is rapid suspension movement, doesn't come otherwise. When i complained during 20K service they said it was nothing un usual, but this time during 30K service they said that the tie rods need replacement and are the cause of the sound. Any past experience from ppl on the forum? Tie rods cost about 3K. I chose not to get it replaced due to my lack of trust on A.S.S in root causing the problem accurately. I intend to show it to my trusted neighbor hood garage once before finalizing. Suggestions?

With handbrake on, if I alight/get in the car, a creaking sound comes from rear of car. Appears to be some cable lacking lub. Anyone faced this and found a fix? Shown to ASS and they say its common.
