2.3 Fuses and Relays
A fuse is the most common electric protection device. The fuse is placed in an electrical circuit, so that when current flow exceeds the rating of the circuit/fuse, it blows off. The element in the fuse melts, opening the circuit and preventing other components of the circuit from being damaged by the over current. The size of the metal fuse element determines the rating. Once a fuse blows off, it must be replaced with a new one of the same rating.
Switch the ignition and all electrical equipment OFF before touching or attempting to change a fuse.
Replacement fuse must be with the same rating as the one you have removed.
You can identify a blown fuse by a break in the filament. All fuses except high current fuses are press fit.
Never touch fuses with bare hands. Always use the fuse puller to remove and refit the fuses.
Be careful while removing the relay, to avoid damage to relay terminal — do not shake or apply excessive force .

Graphic
Battery mounted fuse box consist of following fuses:
•  Main charging fuse – 150A
•  Bus bar fuse - 80A (White colour)
•  Cooling fan fuse – 60A (Yellow colour)
2.4 Flat Tire
Reduce your speed gradually, keeping a straight line. Move cautiously off the road to a safe place well away from traffic. Park on a level spot with firm ground. Stop the engine and turn ON your hazard warning flashers.
Firmly apply the parking brake. Have everyone come out of the vehicle on the side away from traffic.
After stopping , use the hazard warning triangle to alert the oncoming traffic of the stopped vehicle
Never stop your vehicle in a traffic lane to change a tire. Keep driving until you reach a safe location.
The jack provided along with the vehicle is to be used only for changing a spare tire. It is never to be used to perform any other maintenance or repair on the vehicle.
Never place any part of your body under any portion of the vehicle when it is supported only by the jack. You could be crushed by the vehicle if it falls off a jack. Keep by-stander’s away from the vehicle.
Find level, solid ground that is clear of oncoming traffic. If you cannot find a safe place to stop, it is better to drive on a flat tire and damage the rim than it is to risk being hit by oncoming traffic.
After changing a flat tire, never store the tire or other equipment in the passenger compartment of the vehicle. This loose equipment could strike an occupant in the event of a sudden stop or collision. Store all of these items in the proper place.
The following sections outline the procedure for changing a flat tire;
2.4.1 Jack/Wheel Spanner
The jack and tool bag is placed under the third row seat.
Graphic
Remove the velcro placed around the Tool bag .
Graphic
Jack is held in place by a wing type bolt. Remove the wing bolt and move the jack towards tail gate slightly to remove it from its position.
Graphic
Wheel spanner, jack handle Tow hook and Tools are placed in the tool bag and fastened using Velcro.
Graphic
2.4.2 Spare Wheel Removal
The spare wheel is mounted on the back door at the rear end of the vehicle. It is held in place by a securing nuts underneath the Bolero badge.
•  Insert your hands at both side of the Bolero badge on the spare wheel cover and pull the badge away from the Cover
Graphic
•  Loosen and remove the securing nut counter clockwise with a wheel spanner
Graphic
•  Hold the spare wheel cover with both hands and pull outwards to remove
•  Loosen the remaining spare wheel nuts counter clockwise with a wheel spanner
•  Slowly support and lower the spare wheel
A anti-theft lock system is provided for the spare wheel as shown. Any small lock can be used to disable the securing nut from being removed.
2.4.3 Wheel Nut Loosening
Wrap the tip of a screw driver with cloth, insert it near the lugs of the wheel cap (if equipped) and pry the cap away from the wheel.
Do not try to pry off the wheel cap by hand alone. Take due care in handling the wheel cap to avoid unexpected personal injury.
Graphic
Always loosen the wheel nuts before raising the vehicle. Turn the wheel nuts counter clockwise to loosen as per the crisscross sequence shown. To get maximum leverage, fit the spanner to the nut so that the handle is on the left side. Grab the spanner near the end of the handle and push down on the handle. Be careful that the spanner does not slip off the nut. Do not remove the nuts, but loosen them by one or two turns.
Do not apply force with your legs (or stand) on the wheel spanner while loosening/tightening the wheel nuts.
2.5 Jack Points
Front jack up point - On the chassis long member behind the front wheels.
Rear jack up point - On either side of the frame.
Graphic
Graphic
2.5.1 Jacking
Position the jack at the correct jacking point. Make sure the jack is positioned on a level and solid ground. Ensure that no one is in the vehicle.
Graphic
A
Flat Tyre
B
Chock Blocks
Block the wheel diagonally opposing the flat tyre to keep the vehicle from rolling when it is jacked up. While blocking the wheel, place a wheel block in front of one of the front wheels or behind one of the rear wheels.
To raise the vehicle, insert the jack handle end along with the extension into the jack and turn it clockwise with the jack handle. As the jack touches the vehicle and begins to lift, check that it is properly positioned. Raise it high enough so that the spare tire can be installed. Remember that you will need more ground clearance when putting the inflated spare tire than when removing the flat tire.
Make sure to locate the jack properly in the jacking point. Raising the vehicle with an improperly positioned jack will damage the underbody of the vehicle and may allow the vehicle to fall off the jack and cause personal injury.
•  Use the jack only for lifting the vehicle during wheel changing
•  Do not raise the jack with any person inside the vehicle
•  When raising the vehicle, do not place any objects on top of or underneath the jack
•  Raise the vehicle only high enough to remove and change the wheel
•  The usable extended height of jack is up to the yellow line/mark. Do not raise the jack above the yellow line.
•  Follow jacking instructions
•  Do not start or run the engine while your vehicle is supported by the jack
Never get under the vehicle when the vehicle is supported by the jack alone.
Remove the wheel nuts. Remove the flat tyre straight off and then place it aside. Roll the spare wheel into position and align the holes of the disc with the bolts. Lift the wheel and hand tighten the top wheel nut. Wiggle the wheel and press it back over the other bolts.
Re-install the wheel nuts with the tapered end inward and tighten by hand. Press the wheel inward and tighten the wheel nuts further.
Before lowering the wheel hand tighten the nuts in diagonal sequence so that wheel is flush against the hub/drum
Graphic
Never use oil or grease on the bolts or nuts. Doing so may lead to over tightening of the nuts, wheel nut spanner slip, damage the bolts and also may cause personal injuries. Also, nuts may loosen and the wheels may fall off, which could cause a serious accident. If there is oil or grease on any bolt or nut, clean before installing wheel nuts.
Lower the vehicle completely and tighten the diagonally opposite wheel nuts using the wheel nut spanner. Turn the jack handle extension anti clockwise using the jack handle to lower the vehicle, making sure the handle remains firmly fitted onto the jack handle extension. Make sure the wheel spanner is securely engaged over the nut. Tighten each nut a little at a time in the diagonally opposite order as shown. Repeat the process until all the nuts are tight. Do not use any other tools or any additional leverage other than your hands, such as a hammer, pipe or your foot.
Graphic
Firmly tighten the wheel nuts as per the sequence shown in the illustration , two to three times.
Improperly or loosely tightened wheel nuts are dangerous. The wheel can wobble or come off. This can result in loss of vehicle control and cause a serious accident. Always make sure all the wheel nuts are properly/securely tightened to the specified torque.
When lowering the vehicle, make sure all portions of your body are clear off the vehicle as it is lowered to the ground. Have the wheel nuts tightened with the torque spanner to 120 Nm, as soon as possible after changing wheels.
If you have rotated, repaired, changed your tyres or changed the wheel rims, retorque the wheel nuts after driving about 1,000 kms (Torque 120 Nm).
Put the wheel cap (if equipped) into position aligning the nozzle on the wheel to the nozzle clearance on the wheel cover. Tap it firmly on the sides with your hand to snap it into place.
Check the air pressure of the replaced tyre. If the pressure is lower than recommended, drive slowly to the nearest service station and inflate to the correct pressure. If it is too high, adjust it until it is correct. Always reinstall the valve cap after checking or adjusting tyre pressure. If the cap is not replaced, dirt and moisture could get into the valve core and cause air leakage. If you lose a valve cap, buy another and install it as soon as possible.
Wheel balancing to be done after tyre puncture rework.
2.5.2 Restore the Tools, Jack and Flat Tyre Securely
Restore the tools and jack back to their respective locations. Mount the flat tyre to the back door bracket at the rear of the vehicle. Firmly tighten the securing nuts and put the wheel cover back. Double check to ensure the tyre is snug against the back door of the vehicle.
It is recommended to fix the flat tyre at the nearest tyre shop and swap the spare wheel back. The wheel balance and alignment differ from wheel to wheel which may lead to difference in steering and braking.
2.6 Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
Graphic
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the legal identity of your vehicle. The vehicle identification number is stamped on the VIN plate riveted on the driver side. It is visible after opening Driver door on the B pillar of the vehicle. The engine number is also stamped on the same plate.

5 EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM
The emission control system is a highly effective system which controls exhaust emissions from the engine and crucial for meeting emission norms specified by law.
Your vehicle is equipped with the following emission control systems for meeting BS VI emission norms.
1. Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)
2. Selective Catalytic Reduction(SCR)
3. Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
In order to ensure proper function of the emission control systems, it is mandatory to get your vehicle inspected and maintained by an authorized Mahindra dealer. The maintenance schedule in this manual need to be followed.
It is also extremely important to use correct grade of fuel, Confirming to IS 1460; 2017 BS VI Specification.
5.1 Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)
A diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) is an after treatment component that is designed to convert carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbons (HC) into carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O).
5.2 Selective Catalytic Reduction(SCR)
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is an advanced active emission control technology system that injects a liquid-reducing agent through a special catalyst into the exhaust stream of a diesel engine. The reductant is called as Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). The DEF sets off a chemical reaction that converts nitrogen oxides into nitrogen and water which is then expelled through the vehicle tailpipe.
5.3 Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) MaxiCLEAN
To enable SCR system work efficiently and to ensure emission compliance, It is recommended to use MaxiCLEAN DEF meeting IS 17042 (or) ISO 22241 specification.
Refilling DEF is part of regular maintenance service. DEF consumption is highly dependent on driving conditions/pattern. It may be necessary to refill DEF reservoir in-between the scheduled service, You need to monitor DEF Indicator Tell Tale and symbols/text messages displayed on infotainment screen / Cluster.
MaxiCLEAN DEF is available at all the authorized Mahindra dealers in variable packs. Individual DEF Packs may have specific filler neck, for filling DEF in the vehicle. While refilling DEF, Ensure no spillage on the body of self and vehicle to avoid any stains or inconvenience.
It is unlawful to tamper with or remove any component of the after treatment system. It is strongly recommended not to use DEF which is not meeting above specification. Further, this may lead to emission non-compliance and warranty will be void.
•  Use Genuine DEF MaxiCLEAN always.
•  Incase of non-availability of above Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) complying to IS 17042 (or) ISO 22241 specification can be used.
•  Never attempt to use agricultural grade urea mixed with water. Agricultural grade urea does not meet the necessary specifications and the after treatment system of your vehicle may be damaged.
•  Total DEF quantity inside the DEF Tank should never be more than 16 liters. Overfilling may result in system/component failure.
•  DEF quality and purity can be ensured only if it is stored properly. Hence ensure the storage of DEF in cool, dry place between storage.
•  Do not add urea to DEF and do not dilute with water. This may cause after treatment system damage.
•  While refilling DEF inside tank, be careful not to allow any foreign particles, liquids, wiping paper/clothing fibers or lint to get inside the system. These may clog or damage the system.
•  If DEF is spilled over vehicle components and metal surfaces, rinse with water or wipe off with sponge and water. DEF residues will corrode the components and metal surfaces, painted body panels.
•  DEF is not a fuel additive and must not be added to the diesel fuel tank. If DEF is mixed with the diesel fuel, engine/fuel system could get damaged.
•  In such a case , do not start the engine and immediately contact nearest Mahindra Authorised Dealer for assistance.
5.4 Contamination/ Incorrect DEF
In the event that incorrect or contaminated fluid is filled inside DEF Tank, contact an authorized M&M dealer to determine the appropriate repair direction.
5.5 Handling of DEF
•  Ensure that DEF does not come into contact with skin, eyes, or clothing
•  Keep DEF out of the reach of children
•  In case if any part of the body is in contact with DEF, clean affected area immediately with plenty of water
•  If DEF contacted with eyes, flush with plenty of water immediately and seek medical assistance.
•  If DEF is swallowed, rinse mouth immediately with plenty of water, drink plenty of water immediately and seek medical assistance.
•  Don’t store DEF refill containers inside the vehicle. Ammonia vapors may escape from container which have a pungent odor and are particularly irritating for skin, mucous membranes and eyes. Inhaling ammonia vapors may cause burning eyes, nose and throat, as well as cough and watering eyes.
•  When opening the DEF filler cap, ammonia vapors may escape. Refill DEF in a well ventilated area only.
•  If Diesel Exhaust Fluid is spilled on metal surfaces rinse and clean immediately with water. Failure to do so may leave permanent corrosive stains on the metal surfaces which cannot be removed.
5.6 DEF Operating Condition
DEF will freeze at -11°C (12.2°F). This is natural phenomenon. The DEF system in the vehicle is designed considering this and does not require any external heating or additives to avoid freezing.
The Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) system purges to prevent damage from freezing. Do NOT disconnect battery power within 20 minutes of switching the ignition key off. Failure to comply may result in vehicle or property damage.
5.7 Refilling DEF
Your Vehicle DEF Filler Neck is located near the fuel filler neck. The DEF storage tank is located under the body.
Following below steps to refill the DEF:
1. Park the vehicle on level ground and switch OFF the ignition.
2. Open the fuel lid. The fuel lid can be opened by the lever located at the foot of the driver seat. Lift the lever up firmly to open..
Graphic
3. Rotate the DEF filler cap in anti-clockwise direction and remove.
4. Fill DEF from the Container Pack. Each container pack has unique mouth and filling provision. Ensure utilizing the same and avoid spillage. Example. 10 Lit. Pack provided with filler tube and 2 Lit. Pack provided with spout.
5. Fill DEF as required. Maximum Storage capacity 20 litre. Minimum filling 5.0 liter.
6. Rinse with water or use sponge wetted with water to clean the components/surfaces in case of DEF spills over.
7. Put the DEF filler cap back in its place and tighten in the clock wise direction, then close the fuel lid shut.
8. Switch the ignition ON
9. Verify that there is no warning regarding DEF low level. If DEF Level Low warning is still appearing, Check enough quantity filled, If still problem persist Contact nearest Authorized Mahindra Dealer immediately.
10. DEF is being monitored through iSmart tool during regular service at dealership and quantity will be filled accordingly.
It is highly recommended to DEF filling always at Ignition off condition only.
5.8 Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
The Diesel particulate filter (DPF) is an integral part of the vehicle exhaust gas emission reduction systems and it removes the soot from (Particulate matter) the exhaust gas. Unlike a disposable air filter, the DPF is regenerative filter. Regeneration is triggered automatically according to the driving conditions which burns of the accumulated particles/soot. In other words, the active burning by engine control system and high exhaust gas temperature caused by normal/high driving condition burns and removes the accumulated soot. The process is called as DPF Active Regeneration.
However, if the vehicle continues to be driven at either of the following conditions the accumulated soot may not be automatically removed because of low exhaust gas temperature.
1. Heavy traffic driving conditions, especially in city
2. Frequent short trips
3. Low speed for a long time
Graphic
When more than a certain amount of soot deposited, the DPF lamp illuminates.
If the DPF lamp turns ON while driving the vehicle, then it indicates DPF regeneration has not occurred successfully. At this moment, we suggest DPF regeneration must be done through a specific methodology. The same is as mentioned below:
Take vehicle to highway and drive for 20–30 mins @ speeds above 60 kms/hr until the lamp switches OFF
(or)
Perform DPF Park Regeneration as per the below procedure.
DPF park regeneration is only possible when the REGEN telltale is ON in the instrument cluster
•  Park the vehicle safely in a well ventilated levelled open space and free of any flammable material.
Graphic
•  Shift the gear lever to Neutral with the engine running and apply the parking brake.
•  REGEN screen will appear in the drive info menu of instrument cluster when the REGEN telltale is ON
•  REGEN screen will go OFF if REGEN telltale turns OFF.
•  When in the REGEN screen of the drive info menu, Long Press SET button to start park regeneration.
•  Once regeneration starts, “In Progress” text will appear below REGEN. The engine idle speed will increase indicating regeneration has started..
•  Park Regeneration can take up to 30 minutes to complete. Once completed the REGEN warning lamp in the instrument cluster will turn OFF. The engine’s idling speed also returns to normal
Park Regeneration process may not start if CHECK ENGINE LAMP or OBD are ON in the cluster. Take vehicle to Mahindra authorised dealer for assistance.
When Park regeneration is happening do not press the Accelerator, Brake or Clutch pedals as this will cancel the regeneration process.
When Park regeneration is happening, switching off the ignition will cancel the regeneration process. The park regeneration process may not start if requested when the engine is switched ON again. Take the vehicle to highway and drive for 20–30 minutes @ speeds above 60kms/hr until DPF warning lamp turns OFF
(or)
Take vehicle to Mahindra authorised dealer for assistance
Diesel Fuel
It is recommended to use the automotive diesel fuel confirming to IS 1460: 2017 spec only.
If the diesel fuel with high sulfur content (more than 10 PPM) and unspecified additives are used, it can cause the DPF system damage and emission warranty issues.
•  During the regeneration process, take care the vehicle is not near any flammable materials as you may observe hot emission gases from exhaust pipe.
•  In order to avoid burns & personal injury, stay yourself away from exhaust system.
•  Follow speed limits & traffic regulations as defined by local jurisdiction while doing forced regeneration.

•  Sit in an upright position with the base of your spine pressed against the seat back
•  Adjust the head restraint as close as possible to the above specified position, with the top of the head restraint even with the top of your head
•  Maintain sufficient distance between yourself and the steering wheel. Maintain at least a ten inch (10") distance from the centre of the steering wheel to your chest
•  The top curve of the steering wheel should align with your chin for ideal road visibility
•  Adjust your seat and seat back angle such that your wrists rest on top of the steering wheel freely
•  Ensure your legs are in a bent position while fully depressing the clutch pedal
The seat should be adjusted while still maintaining control of the foot pedals, steering wheel and your view of the instrument panel controls.
Never adjust the driver's seat while the vehicle is in motion. The seat may unexpectedly move and cause the driver to unintentionally operate the accelerator or brake, or turn the steering wheel, causing loss of control of the vehicle, an accident or serious personal injury. Adjust the driver's seat only when the vehicle is not in motion.
Never put objects under the seats. They may interfere with the seat-lock mechanism or unexpectedly activate the seat position adjusting lever, causing the seat to suddenly move, resulting in loss of control of the vehicle, an accident or serious personal injury.
While adjusting the seat, do not put your hands under the seat or near the moving parts. This may lead to injuries.
6.1.1 Front Seat
Front Seat Slide
Graphic
Move the seat forward or backward by lifting the adjustment lever/towel bar located under the seat front and release once the desired position is reached.

Never drive with the head restraints not properly adjusted, head restraints removed or inserted in a flipped condition. With no support behind your head, your neck could be seriously injured in a collision.
6.3 General Warnings and Instructions- Seat Belts
At least once each month, inspect the seat belt webbing for any cuts, tears, or other signs of wear (such as fraying along the edges). Also inspect the anchors, retractors, and buckles to be sure they are tight and operational.
•  All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belt no matter how short the trip in order to minimize the risk of severe injury in the event of a crash. In an accident, an un-belted passenger becomes a projectile, and can cause serious injury to himself or another passenger.
•  In a rollover crash, an un-belted person is significantly more likely prone to Injury than a person wearing a seat belt
•  In order to be properly buckled, you must always sit up straight and keep your feet on the floor in front of you. The lap part must be worn low and tight across your hips, just touching the top of your thighs. While fastening the seat belt, the shoulder strap of the seat belt must pass over your chest and top of your shoulder. It must never touch your neck, face, the side of your shoulder, arm, or pass under your arm. The belt must always be flat against your body and not twisted in any way. Nothing, such as an arm rest, a pocketbook, or any external objects should be between you and the seat belt. Improper wearing of a seat belt will reduce the protection in an accident.
•  Seat belts should be adjusted as tightly as possible, consistent with comfort to properly secure the wearer in the seat.
Graphic
•  The seat belts provided for your vehicle are designed for people of adult size, must be properly used and maintained.
•  For usage of adult seat belt to secure children refer to section on manual for child seat positions and use a child restraint systems
Graphic
•  Passengers should not move out of or change seats while the vehicle is moving. A passenger who is not wearing a seat belt can be thrown against the inside of the vehicle, against other occupants, or out of the vehicle during a crash or emergency stop
•  Do not use any accessories on seat belts or modify in any way the seat belt system. Devices claiming to improve occupant comfort or reposition the seat belt can reduce the protection provided by the seat belt and increase the chance of serious injury in a crash
•  An accident or emergency stop, can damage your seat belt system, even if the accident is “minor”. Please have your Authorized Mahindra Dealer inspect the seat belt system after an accident
•  Please be aware that any unsecured item in your vehicle, such as your pet, unsecured child restraint system, a laptop or mobile phones, can become a projectile in the event of an accident or sudden stop, causing injuries to occupants in the vehicle
Never use a damaged seat belt system. A damaged seat belt will not provide protection in an accident, resulting in serious injury.
•  Seat belt systems can be prone to abuse. They are not indestructib
