Re: Maruti issues recall for Old Swift, Dzires and Ritz

I can recall many recalls by MSIL in recent past[:)], so what's happening there? Looks like the mass production is hampering quality even at MSIL site which was rare scene earlier.
But the good part is they remain vocal for all issues and rectified them in time.

Mine is Ritz and manufactured in July 2013,

but I got the below message - It is strange.

'No, your vehicle does not need attention for 'Wiring Harness Routing' inspection. Thank you'

Re: Maruti issues recall for Old Swift, Dzires and Ritz

Maruti Suzuki India Limited today announced that it will proactively inspect and repair the wiring harness fitment
1) No part change involved (it is mentioned as inspect & repair) - So what could be repaired on a wiring harness (without striping the wires, if any)?

2) It says "Inspect & repair the harness fitment" which translated there is nothing to do with the part, there is something else related to harness fitment. So what do we expect here? Re-routing the harness, additional clamping, protection sleeve addition?

Someone who got a car falling in this batch, can you please confirm after attending the campaign?
