    Picked the car in the evening yesterday. I felt no change in the cooling, may be my AC O-rings were doing OK before changing also.

    In the invoice copy the service centre guys have attached some checklist which says AC upgrade (which is almost two sheets), but I hardly see any checks made based on what they had written on that. I hope they fitted the O-rings properly.

    THE steering hose replacement is for april 2011 and laster manufactured cars. the hose has a minor problem which causes leaks.

    Hi all. Around a few months back i had my punto 1.4 eps AC upgraded. However 3 months later the system started to leak compressor oil. this was from the place where the AC hoses connect to the condenser. Apparently the O ring had a problem and the ac line was drained and recharged.
  7. I also own a April 2011 Punto. I was called for a steering hose replacement. I was told by the Concorde service centre, Bangalore person that they have observed around 6 failures in steering hose pipe which fall under a particular chasis number range..so Fiat has decided to replace this steering hose for around 600-700 vehicle

    Part quality nightmare goes on on and on ..low sales and lots of FOC replacements will dent the company low below redline.
  9. My steering column was called for replacement.
    Will be getting this done shortly.
    This is due to a faulty installation done during the accident repairs


    Due to some unexplainable reasons my facebook id has changed.
    The name of the new id is six speed twin
    Will be sending requests to you guys very shortly

    Gosh not one more..at this rate i might have to get entire car replaced. I am alredy finding it very difficult to follow up updates.
    I called up the dealer and ask if there is any update pending, they blunty said NO.
    Went up to them to check clutch slave cylinder, and found that it was the notrious plastic one, got it replaced. Not sure how to trust this guys about upgrades ...

    OT: Tata Nano is also getting a second recall/upgrade done, it includes flashing ecu and some wire harness getting changed.
