    It is barely noticeable in the audio.
    In my case, it was more like a high engine noise resulting from an exhaust leak. It was no more the silent engine that 1.4 used to be. It was not much noticeable in idle, but was high when the car is moving. The gear sft was slightly hard, but no diffuculty to engage it.
    Actually, during break down repair in December, I told them there is high engine noise. They just tightened the bolts of the catalytic converter flange and said it is alright now. After that the noise gradually got worse. I have a long drive plan two weeks down and was worried if something would happen during that. Thats is why I went to get it checked.

    I confirmed with 2 -3 mechanics and they are of opinion that the grr grr metal grinding sound is normal in diesel engine in the first gear as engine takes load at low RPM since no acceleration given.So the noise is not clutch bearing sound.

    Can you just post what all parts are replaced.
    I can hear a khud khud sound in first or second gear (like the buses in first gear).
    Going to Balaji cars on next week

    The Grr Grr noise which you are speaking about is very normal. The sound comes from the drive shaft and CV joints moving under load. They have a small deliberate play which makes that peculiar noise.
