    I have not received any response regarding the update on the spare. When I called Vecto, I was told that the SA is on leave today and there is no update. I was surprised to hear it. If an SA is on leave then somebody should know what is happening. If the SA is on leave for a week then how does this work?
    Is this how Vecto works? I am very much surprised

    Its been one week since my car is waiting at Vecto. They have received the power steering pump and told that they will take one day for the installation. I received a call yesterday when they told me that a wrong part has been shipped and they are not able to assemble the pump. I was shocked:confused:
    When I asked him how can there be two part numbers for the same pump, I got the response that since this is a 90 hp, the part number may be different:eek:
    This is the pump for power steering oil.... How does this affect if it is 75 hp or 90 hp??????????
    Guys, any suggestions????

    Once again you guys have helped me to reduce my panic. On Sunday i noticed that the noise from the engine bay increased a lot. For some months now i feel that my AC is under performing. So, i switched off the AC and after some seconds i could only hear the sweet noise of the MJD :-D. Again switched on the AC and the noise started. Thought of AC fan might the problem as it was running in full, reduced it to minimum but there is no change in the noise. Will go home in the evening and again listen to the sound with different fan speeds. If possible will post a video tomorrow.

    Sound from my Punto after the first long drive.

    Hey guys,

    I had my first weekend out trip on my new Punto ... went to MorachiChincholi/Nighoj. The roads were largely fine all through except for a few small stretches in between [where I had tried to keep her as slow/smooth as possible]. Now since morning, Im getting some noise [somewhere from below the body] when the car goes through small bumps or slightly rough roads in my area. The sound is something similar to "dug-dug" and its slightly tough to point exactly where it is coming from [my best guess is its somewhere below the body]. I have looked and there is nothing different below. There is nothing lying around the dashboard/glovebox/boot which might be hitting something during the bumps.

    Is there something to be concerned of?

    It will better to take the car to the service center and ask them to have a look at it.

    Thanks aruncep and varin11. Will check it out.
    Unfortunately, got urgent office work so will not be able to make time for service centre for another 2 days. Hopefully I will visit soon.
