    Will definitely share pics for Amby and my lovely PAL Padmini...Just to let you know I had been to FIAT check up camp for my Palio. Basically there is no need for a checkup as I am know to the issues. They did not check the car instead asked to get it services(it was due so I too wanted it to be done).. May get it tomorrow.. Planning to have its Headlamps replaced and hopefully its seat covers..

    75k Service

    Planning to give the car for 75k service tomorrow. It has run only 73.5k, but giving it as I need to fix all issues before the Bhutan trip planned for April 10th.

    Things to do

    1. Brake pads & discs
    2. Timing chain
    3. Clutch Assembly
    4. AC cooling issue & strange high frequency noise coming often
    5. Wiper blades
    6. Suspension LHS
    7. Air Filter
    8. Oil Filter
    9. Fuel Filter
    10. Engine Oil
    11. Brake Oil
    12. Power Steering Oil
    13. Wheel alignment & balancing

    Did I miss something??
    Clutch is giving sound often when changing to reverse gear. I guess its the problem with the clutch assembly...Am I right? Should I change it as Im planning for a long trip?

    Have a check on the suspension mounting pads as well. Also, plan to carry some essential fluids with you (engine oil, coolant, etc). Buy from the FASS itself and keep it with you. More importantly, after the service and before starting your mega trip, do a test run for at least 300-500 kms on highway. Drive down to Trichy, have lunch, and come back. :)

    Im planning not to replace the clutch assembly & gear cable as I've done it during the 35k service. As of now only rarely I find it difficult to shift to reverse gear. Service engineer also suggests to change the clutch kit later when its more harder to shift gears.
    Also postponing the replacement of LHS Suspension & mounting pads to cut cost.
