    I agree, Amit. The Change of entire Clutch Kit costs less than Rs. 3,000 on parts. But this Labour cost which is 50% more than part cost is actually killing that super pricing effect.

    I asked SA why so high labour cost? He said Clutch replacement involves opening the assembly & may be gear box (I'm not sure if he mentioned gear box or something else)
  4. gear box is not opened for clutch replacement if i am not wrong.
    clutch sits just before the gearbox

    You are right. The gearbox wont be opened up. However, They need to dismantle all the drive shafts and one more procedure which I forgot. Might be the reason for such high labour which is still not acceptable.

    Y'day I observed a long patch on rear left wheel arc from where this clear coat / lacquer / lamination is peeled off :eek:. Not much visible but there is a difference in shine. The surface from where clear coat is peeled off looks bit dull. I don't know what's happening.

    To add salt to the injury, today morning some crooked one seemed to have run a long scratch on front right fender & also on front right door. The scratch on the door runs thro' the Fiat sticker.

    The 2.5 Year "New" car is getting "old" :(:A
