    Hi I am Shiv Rathod . I am facing Front Right Suspension issue with my linea classic + . Car clocked 40000 km Whenever car goes over potholes or speed breaker it make noise .I have checked in Sky fiat service center in Pune once 21000km that time problem was resolved ,they changed elastic pad but now after 38000 km again came back .I went to the same service center 4 times but every time they say problem solved out. I don't understand it is elastic pad issue or lower arm issue.I m really Disturbed now

    Hi shiv,
    The details you have provided are too little for anyone to suggest - even guess - anything. Please post details on how the noise is like, when the noise is more pronounced I.e., when in potholes or on speed breakers? Also, pls post on the job carried out at 21k and which parts were replaced.

    Hello, Thanks for your attention V.K.Pasupathy. Actually noise more pronounced on potholes and sometimes on speed breaker. They have changed part called stud pad or elastic pad ( which turns suspension left / right ) At 21000 km And problem was resolved .but after 38000 km I again faced same problem .I took car to same service station and they were reluctant to serve me .They always say we have changed elastic pad under warranty. But I think they are misguiding me.

    OK. Ask the FASS guys accompany you for a test drive. Re-create the noise in front of them (by deliberately driving into potholes) and put the ball in their court.

    What? This is ridiculous. This doesn't seem to be new to me at all. Why don't you ask them to get a new part which is not damaged in transport? This is unacceptable.

    Very bad diagnosis from them. Did they also change the mounting pads? That could be the issue as well.

    If replacement of mount pad and suspension components could not solve the issue, ask them to check the lower wishbone for failing Bush or the bolt coming loose. Relax @Shiv Rathod the issue should be simple but getting longer to resolve only on account of incompetence on the part of the FASS. Do escalate the issue through email to Fiat. Your time is also valuable and just cannot be taken for granted by the incompetent FASS.

    My linea mjd 55000 km run had suspension noise while going over rough patches of road. It got resolved after changing link rods.
