      Lightbulb Will Fix Ikon issues

      I have owned the Ikon for about 5 years now , ever since I started working. In this time I have got to repair , maintain this car myself. I have not sent the car to the ASS for the last 3 years, So post your Ikon worries and let me help! I have the full service manual for the Car , Electricals and the ECU as well.

      Most Ikon issues are minor issues blown out of proportion by incompetent mechanics , so feel free!

      You the man... but you are in the Capital and my Ikon 1.6 Zxi Petrol is in Bangalore...

      Well I have lot to ask, but let me start with just 2 issues currently I have..

      1. The floater in the tank is not working I guess. Cause the fuel gauge needle is always on the middle. Ford A.S.S told to change the entire fuel sump and other stuff and cost is equivalent to buy a second hand Honda Activa.

      2. The rust has eaten away the diffuser. Just before the tail finish (exactly below the rear tyre) there is a hole. Tried to fix it with M-Seal. But not working. Ford A.S.S recommend the change for which again I could buy a 180 Ltr Refrigerator.

      So, what you think. Do you have any DIY solutions for this.

      Please advise.

      Well for point 1 - You can get a float and pump assembly for about 4k for a bosch make comes with fuel float , I get it from KAshmere gate here (auto mart) ASS will rip you off for this one as the LAbour is intensive - you have to drop the fuel tank

      For point 2 - There are 2 parts for the silencer. The last part costs 600 rupees here at an FNG - replaced 9 months ago for the same reason. The middle part costs 700 rupees. Dont waste your time with OEM ones. You can practically use any end can with some welding. Our Ford ikon does not mind, I have ran with a Lancer's silencer for about 4 months prior to changing.

      I have no idea why Ford ASS asked you to change the fuel sump , I am sure our tank is plastic. Unless yours is metal and it is dented. Which year is your car?

      So if I understood you correctly I have to buy this "float and pump assembly from bosh for 4k" which can be inserted after getting the fuel tank down. If I remember correctly I have already changed the fuel pump earlier, but its not Ford, I guess its Maurti stuff, not sure though.

      This looks reasonable. However do you know how to source these parts. I mean does any workshop can get it for me, or do I need to buy it from a spare parts shop. Do you have the part names or number by any chance.

      Its quite old, Aug 2004 make, and I very much believe the fuel tank is plastic.

      Most spare shops will carry the ikon silencer , You live in Chennai else i can get it for you. My car is 2000 make. If you have changed the fuel pump already , you may be able to change the pcb card alone.

      Please upload to dropbox or google drive and share the link via PM. I don't think it is a good idea to upload in the forum.
