Hi all, purchased some more parts for my sweet car.
Here goes the list with the cost
Wiper Blades (Scew Type) - 220/-
Wiper arm caps - 10/-
Seat regulator for driver seat - 282/-
Dashboard Polish (3M brand) - 107/-
New spark plugs - NGK - 3Nos - 212/-
SPark Plug Tool - 58/-
Total bill is 936/- including tax.
Here are the pictures
Currently the regulator on my driver seat is welded! Cant recline or do anything with it. Except sliding on the rails
There is misfiring some times in my car during cold start & even while driving fast, so thought it must be because of 1new & 2 old spark plugs.
NGK spark plugs, shop keeper insisted very much to buy this instead of BOSCH. Bought it, not sure if it if okay to use these. Saw lots of boards etc for NGK on J.C.Road so assumed it must be a good brand. Please share your opinion.
This one costs 58/- the one with the T spanner type costs more than 5 - 6 times of this cost. The same one with a longer rod costs 250! Anyway I wont use this much so bought this small tool.
I have Waxpol for exterior polish, bought this for polishing dashboard & other plastic items.
Thought of buying M 800 Type 2 wiper arms with SKoda fabia wiper blades. But the shop keeper told me that I need to change the wiper motor & many other parts for this mod. SO dint want to take risk & just bough these crew type wipers.
Did the shop keeper lie to me? Please throw some light on this myth/fact.
Will fix the regulator first tomorrow morning & will update here soon.
The New MGP Type 2 Steering wheel (Costing almost 750 with bill)
This is how it looks once the steering wheel is removed.
This is a close up of the auto cut off indicator mechanism
The needle is the key thing for the auto cut off to work (I hope My guess is right)
The type 2 steering is slightly thicker than the type 1. Both are of the same size (radius) The horn pad has 4 points of contact for the horn to work. Somewhat better than the 2 switch type 1 steering.
Got my new strut Brace here are the pictures while installing it.
Will put a clearer photo by afternoon.
Thanks a lot Varun, did the same thing today (took a crazy turn on a empty stretch of road at almost 40kmph speed) and its much better now. previously the front end used to kind of flex now its much better.
thanks a lot for the time & effort you put, Sure will drive safe. I really love the paint finish given on the brace. Matt Blue is really looking good. Have you posted picture of your car's brace? just curious to see.
I am not sure if I have fit the nuts properly, just see these pics & let me know
Cc: Varun - I spoilt an OEM Nut & used what ever I had as a replacement.
