    ## Post Whoring - Part 3 ##

    Vitz, I suggest you to post these old valuables in my below thread rather than posting them on Post Whoring threads. (Sadly many links were broken there 😞)

    Perodua Viva Elite

    (1) Check your bonnet or fuel lid kept open. (2) Did your Elite expose to heavy rain? If so park her under sunny condition and let her dry. Some sensors might got wet.

    High pressure washing of engine bay ok or not?

    Heat also work on plastic and make it off- colour. You can't use same plastic material which used to make water reservoir for wiper, for making PS fluid reservoir. They should use an advanced plastic which resistant to PS fluid to make PS fluid reservoir. But when they add additives to resist with PS fluid, then they may loose colour property. Final plastic formulation is a combination of our required properties up to a certain limit , and one additive may limit the the adding of another additive . So this decoration is difficult to overcome and in Mitsubishi this is very common (including mine). As far as I know no other permanent option ignoring it or replacing it with a new unit. But I found below video from the net. But I am not sure it will work on PS fluid reservoir or not. Different plastics behave in different way.

    My New Ride : Mistubishi Lancer CS1 GLX (A/T) YOM 2007

    21,000km done under my ownership and taken car to the agents for lubrication service (Odo: 112,900km) I didn’t observe such a brake oil level dropping, but service people found small leak from rubber boot kit at rear brake cylinders. (When gently press the rubber part, oil start to leak) Brake cylinders were taken out and cleaned well. No deep grooves on inner wall of the brake cylinder, but they took it to lathe shop and polished the inner wall of the brake cylinder. Polished the inner cavity of the brake cylinder. After 11 years , Cup boot kit for brake cylinders replaced. (Mitsubishi Part No.: 4610A078) Cup boot kit (Repair kit) = Rs.2,932/= (for both sides) Labour cost = Rs. 3,174/= Total cost = Rs.6,106/=

    ABS of Viva Elite

    I have seen only one difference between maintaining ABS variant and non ABS variants of Viva Elite at Unit#d Mot#rs. For variant with ABS, at every lubrication service, service people open and take out rear drum covers and clean rear brake system with Air. No such cleaning on non-ABS variant. It does not cost you. If you can afford go for EZI model which consist of ABS & dual Air bags.
