The car now runs well but has started to sound even more throaty after the leaky exhaust was fixed.
BHPian Sanidhya mukund recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
A leaky door garnish beading caused water to enter into my Ikon and the carpet had got wet. The car had also suffered some rodent damage.
Sent the car to the garage and got the following work done:
- Door garnish replacement
- Rear brake shoes replaced
- Rear wheel bearings replaced
- Exhaust leak fixed
- Front strut mounts changed
- Fused bulbs replaced, damaged wiring repaired, fuses replaced
- New wiper blades
- Got the floor a new coat of anti-rust paint, commonly known as ‘Japan Black’
Total damage? Around 15k. The car now runs well, but has started to sound even more throaty after the leaky exhaust was fixed. They told me that it is better to replace it. Other than that, the car is largely in good health.
The oil change is due in a couple of months. I am planning to replace the battery, coolant, front brake pads and the silencer along with the oil change. The boot release switch has also given up, but I am unable to find a replacement.
