    Clutch is never covered under warranty.. you can check with any car company in India...clutch goes kaput because of driving habits.... there is no other reason for clutch to wear down.

    I had got clutch assembly replaced under warrantee of my former 75 HP GP.
    Only burnt clutch are excluded from warrantee due to bad driving habbits

    Gawade Bhai, First of all a belated congratulation for 1.4 Punto. I didn't know that you bought one after lengthy discussions we had last year.
    Bad to hear the clutch issue, but it's good gesture from FIAT paying you 50% back. I appreciate that!
    Pls elaborate your driving habits. It seems you keep clutch engaged in jams for long.
    Don't feel lazy in slotting 1st or second from neutral instead of leaving the clutch engaged.

    I too have similiar issue in recent days and same has been escalated to Mangesh also. As per them they are reimbursing me the warranty parts amount only. I am waiting for their response as how they will be refunding me the paid money.

    PFA bill associated in my case done at BRIZLAX MOTORS, VARANASI

    Hi All, I have Punto Diesel 2010 model and completed 21000 km. Yesterday, when I was coming on the way to home, I felt that there was jerk while moving my car from 1st gear and this disappeared when the speeds goes up. I felt the same during reverse gear. after reaching home, jacked all the four wheels one by one and checked whether any issue with wheel bearing but all are fine. Next, opened bonnet and checked all engine mounts but all are in good condition. Today, I went to Fiat authorized service station (RDC Fiat, Chennai) and they examined with Onboard scanner and found no issues. Finally they confirmed that there is a clutch shuddering and clutch need to be replaced. But this is too early for clutch wear:eek:. Finally, I decided to replace it and asked for appointment. FASS people replied that appointment is full for next one month and I have to wait for more than 30 days to replace.:confused::confused:. I am confused and don't know what to do. Senior people plz suggest whether I can replace it outside FASS. If yes, provide me the parts which needs to be replaced with OE maker name. Thanks.

    yes , you would have gone to the service center with warranty book let where it clearly mentioned that it will cover under 30,000 km, the service advisor may not be aware of this and made you spend this money. in case if you log clutch compliant first time within 30K and it totally goes after 30k they should consider the old compliant and change it under warranty.

    though clutch cost is 4000 but labour cost is high Rs.2000 as they need to open the gearbox to replace the clutch.

    Hi Ramu, Thanks for your reply. Worst thing is I bought this car from my friend who had completed only 10k while selling off and he skipped service schedule which made warranty to void. Now I can neither use warranty nor paid work as service station appointment is full for next one month. Could you suggest whether I can do it outside with my Trusted Mechanic. ? Thanks

    Just a question, how much does a clutch replacement cost?
    I want to change mine before I leave to Leh in Sept .
