    That was the intention & expectation. However, if I'm not wrong, Elastic Pads needed to be changed prematurely in a few 2012 cars as well.

    On saturday Morning started off for a long trip , started the engine , started well but warning came CHECK ENGINE , First time seeing a warning sign in my 2 plus years ownership of jet , tried twice still the same , ok lets open the bonnet , OMG its its a RATS play inside the engine bay , it has tore off all the deadening material inside the bonnet, oh no full of fur dust over the engine , but there was no lag or some thing called sundu ,srida both said take it to tass if its check engine , but i test drove took up to 100 nothing happened no lag but warning is there, no way family suggestion take to TASS, so called Tensing,again he has done a great csc , took my call in just 2 rings and said sure i will help you and gave contact in VST,
    As RDC hasn't opened he asked to goto VST , finally suresh from tensing team who has joined rdc but was asked to stay 15 days more in vst helped me , he itself took the car inside the garage connected the USB , installed the fiat monitor run the program for open ended connections , opened the TJET plastic box
    it was same type of deadening inside the plastic which the rat have tried to bite which also bite the sensor wire for turbo. he personally fixed by adding new wire in no TIME fixed the issue run the diagnostic again and finally no errors :) ,Thanks to MR suresh & all who helped , so after reached back home we all started for the journey.

    One thing to be appreciated about FIAT is superb advanced electronics , which no car in this segment have built, see if some person who doesn't have warning sign and in middle some issue arises :( , thanks to FIAT.

    Oh these rats again :A Good to know that a fatal damage was avoided! Even in case my Punto, some portion of deadening material has been bitten away by the rats :evil: Since then, I check the engine bay area every morning !!! I feel during winter, rats gets attracted towards Fiats because of these deadening material which will be like blanket for them!! So are you replacing the deadening material? Can it be done? Any pointers would be helpful....

    Yeah ure correct 50% material gone , yes it can be raised via tass and we can get it , will wait for RDC motors service for complete start and then raise.
    forgot to mention , Suresh in tass didnt charge for the repair done.was satisfied. he also saif if you go to local country store u can get those rat repellers keep it inside bonnet so for the smell itself will not come . have to get it.

    @ vijays, Thanks for the update. Well, as of now am using Napthalene balls to prevent rats & so far it has worked. Touchwood! I place @ 2 - 3 open packets of these at various places under the hood every night.

    :sad:, thanks to FIAT.>

    Exactly the same my Wife said after listening to our conversation. She didn't understand initially, I explained her about the Warnings displayed on the MID. Later I got a Tap on my shoulder for choosing A FIAT.
