The clutch noise repeated again today,took to the ASS
Problem doesn't occur during cold start,it occurs only after the car rides for sometime.
at 830am,handed the car to service bay incharge(Who's my close friend),he put 3 mechanics onto duty ,they took the car into a bay.
Clutch cable was inspected ,no wear and tear and lubricant was also there(Grease).
My friend came inside customer lounge and had told me the clutch assembly needs an inspection and it will take about a day or two.As i wasn't prepared for such a scenario,i asked whether the work can be done within the day itself,he replied he will try his level best.
I went inside the bay and removed the items in dash as per my friend's instruction.
I waited some more time as one of my another friend was about to pick me up from there.
I was served hot coffee ( Rain +Coffee - Yummy)
The vehicle's tyres where removed , gear+clutch assembly was demounted.
The clutch assembly was opened and was seen that -
Pressure plate was as brand as new, no wear in any components ,except the mounting portion where the clutch cable and drive links up,had bit of debris, as per my friend's instruction ,the mechanics cleaned each components `with antirust spray and was lubed up.
Reassembly started by 1230, and 1 pm was lunch break.After the break work resumed,a tiny error occured while fixing the Steering linkage ,the Airbag module related component popped out ,and this was immediately corrected.The whole job was finished by 3pm.
Vehicle was first test ridden by my friend himself,he reported everything to be fine,and asked one of the technician to fix MID(As battery was removed ,clock settings were resetted)
The car was given to me for test ride , i asked my friend to adjust the play a bit more ,he did the same.
Though the play was only okay ,he had told me to drive with that to a 500-1000km,then the play will be set up once the car is brought to ASS
(It's normal when we replace the clutch ,the play will be set only after 500-1000km,as i have done for my cousin's santro )
The job was done under warranty ,so not a single penny from my hand,i had asked the team of mechanics whether they will be paid or i must pay them with my friend,he told no issues as the company will provide their wage.
Overall after the service car has run about 20km,no fuss till now.
Hope everything is resolved.
