Thankfully, I am not part of the Agile cult, or live in that world. Iteration and re-factoring pre-date Agile, just like me.

Pun very much intended . It was getting boring sitting at home in front a skype call and had to make a comment about it.

Back to the topic of the skid plate we identified following bugs

1. The place where the front and mid section plates meet, there is an overlap and it is causing vibration. The mid section (t-case) guard plate will be shortened.
2. The sump guard touches the cat con at one place. Need to either cut a hole/ punch it out
3. Need 1/2 inch PU bushings for all mounting points
4. Cut holes for venting purposes

Need some help and margdarshan:
Since my posting out of country early this year the GV is just sitting in the open parking. My neighbour was starting it up once a month and driving around for little errand. Last time the GV was started on 15th August and my neighbour reports she didn't start on 17th August.
I came back on 16th September and called amron, since the battery was from 2016, they recommended changing it. Brought amaron 95D26L 64AH. After installation the engine started at once as usual. I let it idle for 10mins and then tried moving the car as i normally do, but it stalled. Started again but again stalled. This happened thrice.
On fourth attempt the car just diidnt startup. 2 more attempts but no luck.

Is it some thing serious or i missed out any thing here.

Obviously... GV requires a calibration every time the battery is disconnected.

Something like this.

Something like this.
The car will start even if the TB calibration is out , only the revs are erratic . Could be a fuel pump issue , ask a mechanic to check if fuel is coming till the injector rail .

Just a update on the Grand Vitara. In October my neighbour who had the keys attempted to start the car and it started as if nothing had happened. Immediately called up packer n movers, and the car is now in Nagpur and driven a 1000kms since.

Small update on my Vitara.

Replaced the water pump, idler pully, tensioner and the fan belt. The first three parts were preventive maintenance and the fan belt was making noise.
Ordered and replaced the rear suspension struts and springs (OE).

Front suspension struts and springs have been ordered.

Lesson learnt : Only order 5PK1650, maruti has random part numbers and they first got me the 5PK1545, which was too short.

Replaced the rear door hinges, and now the door stay put in their place. She is only 100 KMS away from 100k.

Next step is to fix the front windshield. It is out of stock in BLR and we have been waiting for the polisher to take a look at ours.

here are a few pics of the places she lets us go.
