    If the elastic pad is due for replacement, would the thud noise come sometimes while going over speedbreakers/bumps or always?

    Its not the thud noise, when ever the steering is turned left or right their is a grinding sound.

    This can be felt more at stand still.
    Tell some one to steer, if u touch the front shocks springs while steering can feel the vibration frm springs.

    Matter is coordinated with Tata Motors /dealer for update , you will be hearing shortly .


    Just few minutes back my frnd SA in Concorde cald and informed that he has spoke to his manager and on a good will there will a some discount on the Bill.

    Now what do u all think, Shud I wait for confirmation from Fiat or go for discount?

    Confusion is will Mr. Mangesh approve to cover under warranty?

    If your car is under standard Fiat warranty, then it is covered under warranty irrespective of kms on ODO.
    If your car is out of standard warranty but still under extended warranty than all suspension parts are covered til 35k kms.

    Standard warranty is 24months which is crossed. I have extended warranty provide free at the time of purchase.

    Even then 2years is past but its with in the 35k kms and my Punto mileage at ODO 23k, TASS is not ready to cover.

    As of now decided not to go for discount offer, waiting for response frm FIAT.

    I was getting noise from rear suspension whenever car go over pothole or uneven speed breakers (all of them in Bombay). Consulted some Mechanics and TASS, all wanted to open the suspension and check. On checking properly myself I found the boot has become loose and make noise whenever car hitting pothole etc.I just tied the boot with the suspension using wire and the noise disappeared.

    Saved money.:p:p:p:p:p:p

    Strange engine noise after bottom scraping..Reasons??

    Yesterday,my Linea got bottom scraped on the front side while negotiating a crater..Speed was hardly 10 or 20 ks, I immediately stooped, reversed and took another path,but ever since, The engine is making a strange grrr kinda noise, and is more evident during 1-3 gears,and pick-up is also affected. my super smooth bellissimo is behaving like a diesel indica..:( What might be the reason? Although, the car did another 140 kms after that incidence without any issue,still the sound is too much to ignore
    My linea is scheduled for servicing in the next week..what exactly should I look for during it? (4th service/3yrs)..please help
