  1. Bent alloy wheel

    Guys I have punto epk with the alloy wheels.
    Only 1 wheel got bent a little on the inside.

    Any idea on what can be done?
    Or only replacement is the way?
    Only a little.
    Like one inch in the inner side which should have been continuous with the circle of the rim got bent into a straight line sort of thing.

    You can claim insurance. Replace them.

    Do you think it is worth claiming insurance for single wheel, now that the car is only 3 months old?
    Cant anything be done to the wheel?
    If i claim insurance now will i be able to claim it again later within this year if any thing happens?

    @Srikar- If you do not want to claim insurance, you have only 3 options:

    1) Buy a single new alloy from FIAT for Rs9k (or whatever the official price).

    2) Try to get the alloy repaired at a local store. There is always a risk of further damage to the alloy but one member successfully got it hammered back into shape.

    3) Go to the alloy shops in your area and ask for OEM FIAT alloys. Some people remove OEM alloys and get aftermarket alloys. You can get 4 OEM alloys for close to 6-10k. This is the best alternative to claiming insurance.

  6. oops my bad. Did not see that another thread was already there.
    So opened a new thread.

    @paddleshifter
    why not try and get it hammered back into shape once.
    Just a trywill also be looking for alloys in the tyre shops.

    Now if i claim insurance for a wheel how much have i to pay?
    To process my application for insurance.
    Now i claim insurance will i be able to claim it again in the near future?
    Within this year. If any thing happens?
    Will it have any effect on the no claim bonus when i insure it for the next year?
    @gvm
    then tell them to repair those wheels for you.
    Or try getting them repaired.
  7. Srikar, Give me a call and I shall tell you where it can be done.

    legal suite for brake problem

    Thanks for every one for the post that the Fiats brakes wears out very easily and for me also there is same problem, Mine has clocked only 14000 Kms and on my 2nd service of 15000kms the dealer asked me to change.
    when I Mailed every one in fiat there was no proper response from them and even the guys who are responsible in this doesn't even reply to my mail.
    Only guys in TATA motors are replying saying this is due to wear and tear kindly replace.

    Am so much frustrated in this issue, and finally got your posts, about brake pads wearing out, To solve this issue for myself and to help you all ,Am filing a LEGAL SUIT IN CONSUMER COURT against FIAT INDIA & TATA for a reasonable reply and result to solve this issue.

    if needed Kindly help me with your support
