You can try by post asking for contact service center in the Swift
section. I think you will get some reply from them.
Since you are travelling outstation most of the time, then this ERV odd
tyre size 165 R14 65 will be difficult to get and also a lot more
expensive than those 15 or 16 ince common size tyre. My father just
change to 165 R14 55 size. It was the Kenari/Kelisa size and actually the
this size has exceeded the 3% rule by what to do. My Father get this size
of Yokohama Ecos (Japan) at RM140/pc (roughly, not so sure)
Update for you. Sat (19/4/08), my father ERV air cond fan break down. Air
cond become so hot and engine also died off while stopping at the traffic
light. After diagnostic, the is was the air cond fan motor that had
spoilt. After dismantling out the motor fan, found out it was a brand
China brand motor. Changed it to Denso (Japan) motor for RM140++.
Actually all the previous problem of RPM low was most likely to be caused
by this deteriorated in the functionality of this motor fan. Will get the
feedback from my father for his test drive in this few days.
FYI, this are the items I bought from PH Auto
Air filter (OEM type) - RM33/pc
NGK BKR6E (Nissan packing) - RM7/pc
Oil Filter (OEM - local) - RM5.50/pc.
Also check out with PH Auto that the fuel filter is located inside the
fuel tank and quite similar situation like my Kelisa whereby in order to
change the fuel filter, you will need to take out the whole fuel tank. So
let it be as it is.
Also checked out the absorber price-all ori, not OEM manufacturer for
Front - approx RM200++/pc (currently no stock. need to order if want)
Rear - RM175/pc
Wah be prepared to fork out nearly RM900++ if want to change the whole
set of absorber.

I have seen the Lion Motor using those scissors jack to raise up the
whole car like the one you can see in the big service center and also
exhaust shop. However I'm not sure whether need to take down the engine
or not but maybe if raise up like I mentioned, maybe replacing of belts
can be done easier.

ERV is a 4 speed auto with OD.
By the way, what you feel when driving the car with the EPS check light
on?. Is it become heavy like those non power steering Iswara?

My father never monitor the fuel consumption, therefore sorry but could
not give you any feedback on this.
From what I check out at PH Auto, only the ori absorber is available for
ERV. No after market supplier is producing for such a small market in
By the way, what is the cone you are refering to?
I also found out during the Gear box flushing and injector cleaning
(using ultrasonic cleaning) at one work shop located in Klang (Teluk
Panglima Garang), according to the foreman, he said that we will need to
take out the engine like what you said earlier to replace the timing
belt. However, he said that the method will be very difficult and
different from the way to take out the engine of Kelisa and Kenari and
Kancil. I think I will inform my father to find out also from Lion Motor
which company has taken over the ERV servicing and maintenance.
