    Specifically looking for MJD . My guess is its also Valeo only but just need to confirm so that I can order from 99rpm or buy it myself from a dealer I know in blr

    It is better you buy from the dealer whom you know will sell OTC. Risk is nil.

  3. I am almost certain its valeo.valeo is one of the largest supplier of spares for fiat.
    You planning to get the clutch changed from outside??at 40k kms the clutch gave up too early..I was under the impression that it will be min 75k kms after that we need to change it.

    My OTC is not going to be at a FIAT dealer btw!! its from another source.

    Nope the clutch is just perfect. Its a little hard though but that's expected from a '09 punto . I'm changing it because of my Leh trip . I somehow have a bad feeling that it might fail somewhere in Leh or Nubra valley! and then you know the problem.

    Secondly i'm just going to purchase it and keep my old kit till say Aug, I will change over to the new one about a month before my actual trip.

    For past 2 months I am facing below problems


    Slight juddering when releasing clutch pedal after engaging lower gears [1st & 2nd].
    Gear lever feels hard when changing gears.
    Clutch pedal & Race pedal feels heavy.
    Drop in pick-up.
    Huge drop in mileage (Now: 10~11 with in city & 16 on highway, Earlier: 13~14 within city & 20 on highway.


    Is this is the symptom of clutch towards end of its life?


    current ODO reading: 73,000 Kms [Clutch not replaced till now].
