I found a humming noise from day 1 of purchase of the car when it is in 4th and 5th gear.
i had missed this during the short test drive i ha done when i purchased the car
The gearbox opened and worn out gear and bearings changed i had also changed the clutch as it was nearing the end of its life hoping that i don't have to down the gearbox again.
to my bad luck and the mechanics ignorance the noise persisted in 4th gear and he said it wasn't replaced! had to lower the gearbox and do the whole process again.
The cause of the problem was an accident where the the transmission side cover on the gearbox had been damaged and the oil had leaked.
the whole work took more than a month. all parts were purchased from essar automobiles opposite urvashi theatre. they are the distributors for MGP/SGP parts.
the gearbox work came to more than Rs20000 the part alone were rs 11500/
most of the parts are made by Suzuki and imported from Japan so they cost 3 times the cost of equivalent parts in say a swift.
