    1) Stock setup for music
    2) Sound is present while idling. In fact it starts after about a second after I turn the engine on
    3) No sound when engine is off
    4) Will check , but sound is definitely from rear right , at least when heard from the outside
    5) The sound is different from a hissing sound , more like an alternator whine I guess

    Same happens with my car too. But nothing to worry for as far as no burning smell. So enjoy your ride with pride:cool:

    Okay. You are lucky to get your Fiat serviced at Fiat's exclusive service center.

    Hi All,

    Thank you for info. Please give me inputs regarding oil replacement also.

    Hi,

    I just called up the dealer and asked him about the parts covered under extended warranty. He replied these parts do not come under extended warranty. And he is sure about it. I called up Fiat CC. They asked me to go through extended warranty booklet and if these parts are mentioned in the book then I need to show it to the dealer and ask why are you not doing under warranty.

    I will go through the book. Let me see where it will take me to..

    Ahmed, Can you please mention how many kms your car has run?

    The estimate for most parts (Labor excluded) and fluids seem to be correct. The oils that they recommended you to change are part of 4th Service (Paid), done at 45 K kms or X yrs (i don't know the years- check the manual). If you got this service done, i assume all fluids were already changed during the service, if not wait for the service and get them changed then.

    Brake discs should cost you <2100 for a pair and labor varies across cities for replacing these. It's 400+400 here in hyderabad.

    Strut pads are wear and tear parts and wear out depending on the Road conditions and driving style. My car has done 40 K and i do not have any suspension issues so far. If they think the suspension issue on your car is a manufacturing issue, you can push for warranty, otherwise you will have to pay for it. (Suspension is not covered under warranty post 35 K kms and i think it is not covered under extended warranty i.e. after 2 yrs of purchase which i assume you have crossed).

    You got warrantee because your car is registered as 'Private' car.

    Condition of 35000 km is only for cars those are registered
    as ' Taxi'. I had got front sturt replaced of my FGT in warrantee after 35000 km.
    That car was not having EW.

    Please check the thread.

    http://www.teamfiat.co.in/pre-sales...ring-replacement-under-extended-warranty.html

    Now the dealer says if the part stop functioning then it will come under warranty. And that too they have to get approval from Fiat.

    Another part: If the part is giving noise which is as in my case when we turn the steering wheel then, it has to be checked by Fiat and only after getting approval from Fiat, the part will be replaced.

    Looking at thread above, don't understand why he has paid 7000 under warranty. This confuses.

    Hi Vj,

    My car has run 45000km and is 3yrs old. Is strut a wear and tear part?
