    Dhinakar, Dont you ever worry or panic. The Punto is not a space shuttle that only NASA can service. I would advise you to contact SM Auto on GP Road, Royapettah Tel no 9840647886 . You can get the clutch Assy of your choice imported or Indian. Select LUK or AMREP . You can ask him who a suitable mechanic is under his client list. Get it done. This clutch is part of the mjd drive train and with maruti using the similar drivetrain architecture, the clutch work is not a big deal for the local mechanics. PM me if you need more help.

    Thanks a lot Abdul. I will contact SM Auto and reach you in case I need any help.

    Would you recommend any imported brand as OE clutch failed within 25k ? It will be helpful for me to choose brand.

    I think VALEO, france is available in the market. It may be worthwhile to try, but of course the cost implications is a call for you to take. They will guide you.

    Bhai - I enquired about the cost for LuK brand which costed 6500Rs including Clutch plate, pressure plate and release bearing. Is it the right price ? and is LUK is the OEM for fiat Punto ?

    No LUK is not OEM for Fiat, Fiat OEM clutches are Valeo

  8. My Clutch has becomee rock hard once again. Current Odo reads 44890 KMS. During the 30 K service, the Clutch KIT was replaced under warranty. Today I drove my friend's wagon R for some 20 KMS and then when I took my Punto, the Clutch felt very very hard. For the pas 5K I was feeling the clutch is getting harder but felt like it is just a imagination. but today After driving the wagon R for which the clutch was replaced very recently, My car felt very Bad. How should I deal with this in the 45K service. Can I ask for a warranty replacement once again ? Why is this happening ? could be because of some other worn out part which is affecting and making the clutch going so bad ? My Santro's clutch is still so Nice at 55K odo but my Punto at 45K is expecting 3rd clutch.

    This is due to weaken pressure plate & clutch. You have to replace it & I don't think so that this time you will get any warranty claim for it. Changing clutch kit will not solve your problem.
