    Clash81, this isen't true. Windshilelds neither can break due to heat nor due to massive rain!

    What ever you said About heater is 0% true. Our Fiat's heater have timer. Although you switch it on it'll switch off itself after 20mins. So heater cracked windshield makes no sense.

    Mhitesh, this might have happened due to wiper. Some one might have pulled & pushed your wiper making a harder impact.

    I'll suggest get it done from ''Windshield Experts''. Those people are very professional in their work.

    I hadn't switched on the heater. I do think this could be due to the Wiper, as there are lot of kids in my building and recently they have scratched the car as well.

    Any suggestions from where should I get this done?

    I faced the same issue, just that the glass that cracked was LHS co-passenger side. Was parked in the portico and morning I see the entire glass is cracked.

    I called up Windshield Experts and they suggested to get it done from ASC once I told them its a FIAT:D

    It might be because of a stray object hitting the glass, not sure just guessing.

    i do't think wiper can cause such a big damage in that case,the wiper would have boken as well..
    u said kids.. i reckon
    must be a ball or some thing hard.

    replacement shcedule of fuel/diesel filter in MJD1.3 punto

    Hi Guys,
    Can any one please tell me what is the schedule of changing diesel filter in 1.3 MJD punto? My punto is runing less and it has covered only 5K till second service(12 month). Is changing fuel filter reasonable at this ODO meter reading?

    Whenever you change oil, filter should also be changed.
    As per manual, its 15K or 1 year, which ever comes first.

    Wind shield not cleaned ever after replacing the wiper set

    Hi Tfi'ans,

    Is there anyway to clean the wind shield glass as wiper is not wiping properly. I changed the wiper set a month ago and TASS Says they have cleaned the wind shield thoroughly and there seems to be some unknown coating on the glass due to which thin strands of water are left behind each time the wiper goes down:sadblue

    has anyone faced this issue earlier? Any possible soln to this prob.. should i get the car checked with Windshield Repair, Auto Glass and Auto Safety Glass Replacement Services Center India..

    Due to the torrential rain in kerala, it is getting very tricky to drive at night with rain:(
