Replaced the cabin lights with LED lights.
Also, one of the front parking light fused. Replaced that too.

Had given my S Cross Diesel ( July 2019) for its 4th service...ie 20,000 kms.

The SA told me that the oil will be changed plus all filters, injector cleaning etc. Total cost quoted for the same is around 10k plus GST = Approx 13k.

Is this fine? I find it on the higher side. I never paid this much for getting my Civic serviced! This is Prem Motors, Okhla - Delhi.

Refer to the manual for the list of jobs carried out. IIRC engine oil, oil filter, fuel filter and coolant are changed in 20k service. And maybe the cabin filter too. Injector cleaning sounds like hogwash to me at 20k KMS.

Injector cleaning at 20k KMs!

I was told to get EGR cleaning done by TR Shawney at 20K, there is no mention of it in the manual and they're just trying to rip you off.

If you stick to the manual, the service should not cost you more than 7-8k (Service, filter replacement, oil change).

Even I hadn't heard of it being done at such low mileage but the SA was adamant.

Ultimately, I refused to pay more than 9k for the service. In the final invoice, injector cleaning wasn't mentioned. I called up and asked, what happened to that? And the SA said I checked up and it's not needed at 20k. Right.

I gave a scathing feedback. Yet to hear back.

Can you point to which rating you ordered?
Also is it easy to remove the bulbs, I see the clamp on my unit is a bit hard to pull out, did not use more force though. Have changed the boot lamp which was a bit easier.

If you can share DIY videos for both cabin and front lamps would be great. I know its like asking for a lot but hope you will consider the request

Also, the amazon links of the articles! I would love to install at least the cabin lights.

Crossed 11,111km today in the 11th month of owning the SCross...number milestone! I do miss my earlier car - 2012 Vento 1.6 diesel - for the sheer driving fun but must say the SCross is way easier (and cheaper) to maintain and the GC surely keeps my mind at ease especially in the potholes and uneven speed-breakers ridden Mumbai roads.

Considering a remap to amp up the power. I have read quite a bit about wolf moto remap for this 1.3mjd but the more I read the more confused I get (especially with the prospect of the warranty getting voided). Does any SCross owner in Mumbai/Pune have the wolf remapped SCross? And while at it, Iíll try my luck a bit more - anyone with the switchable remap in a 1.3 SCross?

Happy to be corrected but I think wolf's switchable maps are available only for the pre facelift version and not for the latest ones.

Youíre correct. I spoke to them and currently the switchable remap is for 1.6 only. The one for 1.3 is in beta. In any case, seems theyíre not visiting Mumbai till at least November so I got some more time to research this

Have it on my 1.6 in Mumbai. Has made a huge difference in terms of power delivery - especially at lower end of the RPM range.

That being said, it has led to more smoking under hard acceleration which would be something you should consider. I love the power, but end up enjoying the added drive-ability more (thankfully smoke free as compared to full throttle).

Would recommend them for the 1.3 as well.

There is no switchable maps for 1.6 from Wolf iirc. It's only for pre-facelift 1.3. However Wolf gives single map for facelift 1.3

The links for the products are

1. Parking light - https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

2. Cabin light (Front seats) - 2 Nos. https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

3. Cabin light (Dome light) - Rear Passenger - 1 No https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Removing the parking lamp holders / interior bulb(s) is very straight forward and simple.
I did not take any video as it was very difficult to manage the replacement and videography all alone.

a) Parking light. Turn the holders counterclockwise - [CCW when facing from the the car cabin side.] May have to use a little force if not removed it for long time. You can use an adjustable player to hold and turn it if it's difficult with hand.

b) Cabin lights. Use a flat tip screw-driver and just pick it from the small groves on the side. the glass cover will come out. It is just press fit after replacing the bulbs.

Just see these youtube videos as reference. (It's same for S Cross.)
