60 k km servicing done today @Phoenix TASS Pune .
Bill Rs 7245, includes routine servicing +fuel filter replacement +WAWB.
Car was picked up from my workplace @10 am.
I went to bring the car to TASS. Car was handed over back to me @8pm.
Today they again tried to take my signature on satisfaction note on the job card before test drive after the servicing. When I questioned them they said," OK don't sign". When I scolded them they tried to justify it saying that it is Tata 's routine procedure
For reverse gear shifting hardness they have done some lubrication job and now it is smooth.
LHS front power window was little bit tight while opening down. They said the winding motor needs replacement. I refused it as the problem occurs only when operated with driver's switch. With passenger switch it is operating OK.There is also some friction mark on the glass which indicates some alignment issue.
I had told them to apply tie clips to the wheel plates as they often fall down especially after puncture repair jobs due to damages to the plate occued while removing them. (Thanks to govt for their motivational skill improvement schemes)
TD was taken by the supervisor & me. During TD,fuel level was at its nadir and it was blinking orange, after some time a sign in red 'ICD' appered on the DIS.
We filled in diesel and the orange blink and the Red 'ICD' sign disappeared . With only 300 Rs worth diesel the fuel level on the DIS went up above the red zone. Supervisor told me that the fuel sensor seems to be faulty and needs repair. Since it would involve opening up the fuel tank, I chose to do it some other day.
At the end of the TD, one biker overtook us and intercepted the car to tell that one of the wheel plate has fallen down somewhere. We tried to find it but couldn't find it. I said, this is why I had requested for the tie clips. Supervisor said that they must be out of stock.
At the gate, SA was awaiting us. We left for billing, I paid the bill and returned towards the car and to my surprise, I found that SA was fitting the tie clips!
I said,had he done this prior to the TD, I would not have lost the Rs 600 worth wheel plate.
I asked him to give 4 to 5 spare clips as I need them to apply after puncture repair jobs. He said, now the spare parts counter is closed. I said, I will tell the supervisor to send me few tie clips morrow. But the SA requested me to not to go to the supervisor as he might have anticipated that I might disclose the tie clip related mistake and the availability of the the tie clips to the supervisor which would lead to some impact on his salary.
. I didn't disclosed the things to the supervisor but asked him to send me one wheel plate and few tie clips coming morning.
This time wheel balancing required little more weights than the past.
One LOL thing from the bill now. Rate of the distilled water for the battery is written as ' Rs 17,777.78 / Litre'. To my luck, they have charged me Rs 17.78 for the distilled water.
SA said battery water levels were quite down and required almost a bottle. Probably it is effect of the amplifier of the new ICE. Correct me if I am wrong.
Post delivery, I drove the manza for 30 km and can say all is well.
I hope, this week I get time to call the TATAs about charges of the clutch replacement.
