    window glass coming out of track

    HI,
    For some days I have been observing a stiffness while rolling the driver side power window.2 days back I observed the window got stuck midway and its edges had come out of track.The only way to close it was by applying some pressure in the forward direction and then rolling it up.This happens everytime I open the window completely and then try to close it.A similar stiffness is also there for the right side front window.
    I have called up Pandit Auto -Babar the tech there and asked for a appt on monday.
    I will update the cause to you guys after that.

    Rolling ice, the beading has gone loose which leads to this issue. I also faced this issue and carefully aligned the door beading back to its place. Do try that once and it shall sort the issue. Or maybe you can just take your car to the service center and let them do this.

    White tiny dots found the roof and side doors of my Tuscan wine Punto

    Hi All,

    Last week, i noticed tiny white dots which are many in count on roof and side doors of my Tuscan wine punto.

    I tried to clean them using House hold vinegar dilited with water but couldnt find any results.

    From google, i came to know that these are due to hard water.

    Kindly let me know how to remove them.

    Thanks in advance.

  6. go for silicon glaze polish after a good wash
  7. are you sure the spots are from hard water and not the paint coming off?

    Can you post some pics? Where do you park your car? I asked this as this can be a cause, as white dots could be beacuse of some acidic element present in parking area.

    I can see lots of complaints for Tuscon Wine color though it is Punto/Linea

    I see similar spots on my cherry red Royal Enfield also. They disappear after one coat of wax.

    Shekharbabu, apply some good car wax and revert back.

    I think the reason behind it is water and shampoo quality.

    Too premature to call it a ''complaint'' against FIATs.
