How many kms had your car done when the screeching sound began? Did they replace it in warranty? As per the extended warranty(which I bought shortly after the sound came) the clutch comes under wear and tear part hence won't be covered under warranty.
The issue started around 11000 kms. It had increased later on. Raised the complaint when i went for the 15000 kms service. They updated the software and sent it back.
The sound remained. As days passed the sound was louder and more common. The only issue was there was a sound when gears changed. And it dint come up during short drives. And there was no jerk or loss of power or anything else other than the sound. So i made a video and transferred it to the service technician. He forwarded the video to the company, who asked them to change the clutch pack.
The clutch pack arrived after a couple of months, my odo was reading about 22000 kms. And then they took one month for repair. Reason, no tools to change the clutch pack.
But since then the car is running fine.
And as for the crash now. The boot has been smashed. The entire rear door, glass, boot floor and bumper and inner bumper panel are being replaced. Estimate is at 1.35.
