Guys, how do I pass the wires from engine bay to the passenger cabin?
Here's a quote from Audioholic from team bhp

Is it safe to pierce rubber grommets in regard to water insulation ?
Audioholic reply:
If you are talking about crossing the firewall from the cabin to engine bay, Maruti has provided spare stubs in each grommet. You dont have to pierce the grommet. Instead, cut the tip of the stub and route the wires through this. The stub can be taped securely to the wire which will not be possible if you just pierce the grommet.
Does anyone know if baleno has such stubs? would be great if I can avoid piercing the grommet, just wanna pass thin wires for foglamp projectors relay and hi-beam switch.

HI Guys,
In my baleno delta petrol car, after I parked my car, the headlight alarm is not working if headlight is not switched off. Normally, if we forget to switch off the headlight and parked the car, headlight alarm start alarming that headlight is on. But it stopped working recently. Any clue on this?

The right side indicator has stopped working, I suspect the issue is with the signal switch itself since the hazard lights work fine. Do I need to replace the whole stalk or it could be the faulty flasher unit?

My assessment was correct, the indicator stalk was indeed faulty and it was replaced, cost me Rs. 900 + Rs. 300 labor, works great now.

The handbrake cables were replaced in my car last year, initially the handbrake cable was tightened a bit too much, the wheels wouldn't turn freely when the car was jacked up, which was "rectified" later.

Recently the rear left wheel suffered a puncture and I noticed there was a slight drag (and noise) at some point of the rotation. This is present on the right side wheel as well. Meanwhile, no such drag/noise can be heard from the front wheels. What could be the reason? Is the handbrake still over tightened by a smudge? or it could be something else?
