    Yes , Total Cost = 9000Rs Including Labour...

    As per Them , Clutch Is Wear n tear part , so its not covered in warranty ( only Clutch Salve cyndr etc. can claim in warranty )

  2. Ofcourse clutch is a wear and tear part, but for that you need to drive your car for substantial amount of distance. Clutch giving up in less than 6 months of ownership and having driven the car for 4k odd kms is not at all justifiable. .

    I received Reply From Mangesh ::

    "Dear Sir ,

    Further to below communication , we have received update from region/dealer .

    Attached photo of part replaced in your car indicate clutch & pressure plate wear due to clutch riding , such defect don’t fall under the preview of warranty policy & are not a manufacturing defect .

    However as special case we are supporting with 50% gesture of goodwill on clutch assembly part .

    Dealer will coordination for required reimbursement .

    For future we request take care of driving .

    With warm regards,

    @Dear Mahesh /Valsan – we discussed .

    Sad but its true whatever mangesh saying, in my case clutch wear was uneven because of faulty pressure plate,
    Good to hear that they were giving 50% :-D

    Mine 2010 Punto's Clutch Save Cylinder was also changed before 2 months by the Local Service Station but part took from Fortune (nerul),
    Could spot the leak in the ground, so changed it ASAP,
    Its run 14500 Kms.

    What is that.. a squirrel's nest inside the assembly?

    Secondly my pressure plate is hard now but I don't feel anything wrong with the clutch as such.
    Should I still go with full change or is just changing that pressure plate ok

    It's better to change the complete assembly to avoid unnecessary circumstances.
