I drive only 2 kms per day now. I have noticed a metal rubbing kind of noise from engine while idling. Any idea what it is ? There is no issue with performance.

Somewhere near Manipal

Key Remote Assembly

The remote stopped working and I suspected a dead battery as usual. I had gone to Maruti service to renew insurance of S-Cross and remembered about my SX4 Key remote. SA opened up the remote and said the chip is broken.

They had the part in stock and it costs just Rs. 585. Battery is also included. The remote has to be matched with the car after new chip, hardly 1 minute job.

The noise could be just about anything, really.. catcon internals may have metal bits and bobs peeled loose, may be audible at idle, loose heat shield, belt tensioner loosening etc. A once over by a mechanic top down might point to the weak area, or even you can do it, keep at idle and poke around. Since you're on top of everything in terms of maintenance, I'd doubt its anything to do with the engine itself.

Btw is that a custom headlight assembly? Looks fantastic on the SX4, looks exactly like my stock Elantra lights.

Yes, the OE headlights are painted black and after market HID projectors are installed.

My SX4 ZDI has completed 95K km. During the recent service I asked them to check the suspension noise. As expected they came back with lower bush having cracked/worn out on both sides.

Cost of replacement is 7K a piece

Dr Naren, how is the swift lower arm working for you? Do you recommend that I replace the SX4 lower arms with that of the swift?

I have run more than 5000 Kms with lower arm of Swift. No issues faced. I have not noticed any difference while driving too.
