the tinkering is for fitting the ac, as a small part of metal has to be cut inside the engine bay for the ac fitment.the compressor is sanden, the cooling coils is bolero original, the switches is bolero original. at present not installing the roof blower will do it later if not satisfied. akash the price quoted by mahindra dealer is more than double than 29k.
got back my boy after tha ac fitment. the compressor is fitted on the left side of the engine. the fuel pump has been shifted to the right side to accomadate the compresson. the metal sheet just above the upper end of the shock absorber has been cut.
recambering of the rear leaf spring sets done at local garage. the leaf spring sets in the rear was removed and the first 2 were hammered so that the arch increased so that they function when the vehicle is not loaded. the rest of the 3 leaves were flattened out. when the vehicle is loaded the first 2 leaves flatten and come to rest on the second set of leaves. did a short test drive and the ride seems to have improved.
mates any body has any first hand experiences regarding carbon fibre leaf springs? will replacing the steel leaves with carbon fibre leaf spring improve the ride quality. will replacing the shocks with gas filled shocks soften the ride.
mates sold the brute off as me and family unable to adjust to the harsh ride and guess what BOUGHT A BOLERO STORM (second hand one) got a good deal for my bolero di sold it at the on road price, only loss being the price of the ac fitment.
