Hey guys an update after spending a whole day with hawk. 60,000 kms update:
It was a scheduled service, which was taken appointment almost 12 days ago.
Reached dealership yesterday at 08:59 am, SA arrived around 09:15 am.
First thing he did was took the hawk to service bay, which was reserved.
As usual SA Kiran, asked me on any issues.
I told him to check the AC, as there was some muddy smell from vents.
He promised to get those vents cleaned, and then i insisted for AC gas topup, which was never done in all these 5 years.
Will check this summer in Mangalore and will give a feedback. Rear AC vents were cleaned.
In the end some AC oil was topped up.
AC gas is being re-cycled first, extracted by the machine, that shows the readings.
The reading came around 172, where as ideal reading should be around 800 for optimum cooling.
Engine oil replaced, Maximile FEO semi synthetic. Old oil being taken into reservoir.
Diesel Filter Cartridge, then Oil filter near engine.
The diesel primmer is the filter cartridge, by Bosch from Spain.
The violet cylinder kind of is the oil filter near engine.
The tyre had shown some unusal wear tread pattern, so alignment was also carried out. Report:
As soon as the brake cleaning was done, the rear drums were sent for painting, dull black. End result
Learnt a lot of new things on the suspension, got the bushes changed.
Now the hawk glides on potholes, getting feel of new vehicle, which otherwise swaying was more in bad roads.
Now happy atleast the latest design bushes are in place. Old one has gone brittle on the left, new design on the right
All the bushes that needed change.
Initially he suggested me to go for only rear bushes change, but i told him to replace all the bushes of suspension in one go.
Also there was paint smeared on hawk by some miscreant, got that removed immediately at the dealership.
Initially had thought to go for service at one of friends new workshop in Bannerghatta, but this paint issue made me go to Chrome Motors. Finally the bill:
Got a 10% discount and 5% on spares. Total:13,673/-
