    Thanks italia-linea for your reply. Just 1 question. when you say take out wipers you mean to remove them? Any reason for this?

    @Narayan
    It's just to make sure wiper doesn't get stick to windshield.
    You can also put newspaper or cloth between wipers and windshield.

    Hi Narayan,
    You can follow the steps mentioned by Vijay & Italia-Linea. In addition I would recommend you to fill Nitrogen in all the 4 tyres (if you aren't already doing so). This is to ensure that there is no significant drop in the tyres air pressure. My parents had left our old Palio in the garage for 6 months when they came to the US. After they got back, my dad plugged in the Battery terminals and bingo he could resume driving. If you have regular air, it might be difficult to immediately drive the car once you're back. Have a safe journey!

    Really sad to hear about the clutch problems.

    As for the lock issue, did you try resetting the system by disconnecting the battery?

    Re: Punto 90HP - Query

    guys does any one know the significance of the H symbol in the odo meter. One of my friends who bought a punto has this symbol. When I bought my car this symbol was absent but my speedo was reading 0 and was flashing. Later on I had some issue with B&M and when they reprogrammed the unit this flashing was gone but no H symbol . Any idea?

    The H actually equalls 70 kms I guess which the manufacturer uses as a buffer for crunching miles while testing in teh factory and transporting teh vehicle from teh factory to the showroom . Once the 70 Kms expire the ODO starts from 0

    H will be displayed on ODO for 250 Kms.In these 250 kms you can reset your Odometer to 0 once. To reset it you have to long press the Trip button.

    Hard Steering

    does Linea comes with hard steering .am feeling hardness in the steering of my car mostly while driving and sometimes after driving some Kms.The TASS (bharati auto, mumbai)put the problem to the elastic plastic wear outs(no checking yet done).however the elastic pads were replaced 4 months back(18 months after car purchase) in my car and since then I feel the hardness.The reason to change the elastic pads four months back was "tik" sound on turning the steering full.Can elastic pads wear out so fast.sometimes I feel they didn't change the elastic pads in the last service and just made some adjustments(Just my gut feeling).I have fixed an appointment in the 3rd week of Feb but the elastic pads are out of stock.Any advise guys wht can be the problem and how to go about.

    Re: Hard Steering

    Did you check for the power steering fluid... Steering tends to get hard when the fluid level is too low and some leakage in the pipes...
