No,not at all. I can't blame tata because it's my fault. I was repeatedly using boring water for washing and pointing the water jet at the rotors to clean up the black dust off . This type of rust can be seen in other brands too.
Tata and mahindra are 100times more ethical than maruti. I have owned 3 different maruti cars in last 15years. So I know what I am saying. Tata has used the best parts in their nexon sourced from reputed vendors. And I have inspected by going under the car many times.And every time I come out impressed!!
Pls wait, I will write why I am against to sanding and painting. If you want it must be resurfaced on the l lathe machine and can be painted but not this paint. Having severe migraine could not concentrate on anything.
Well I removed the rust from the rotors today. It took a lot of time and effort, as there is no space to work in the wheel well. Moreover fingers get hurt if one is not careful with the sanding process. Anyway it gave me lot of satisfaction while working on the rotor. And satisfaction is very precious to me, mind you.
One might be not satisfied with a Mercedes, and on the other hand one might be totally satisfied with an Alto! And I believe in that case Alto owner has actually attained nirvana! So satisfaction is a relative term you see. So coming back to the topic, removing the rust myself gave me immense satisfaction, and now I will be looking forward towards painting the rotor next.
@mayankdixit, I hope you left the car on jack stands, you can use heat resistance transparent spray because keeping the car on stands for extended hours not good. We discuss leftover things later. Thanks for your medical advice my migraine is fading away.
Where have you heard this thing??
Is it mentioned somewhere ,on a jack stand itself or in a manual or something?? Please clarify!!
There's a difference between a jack and a jack stand. I've often left my cars on jack stands for days, but never on a jack.
Actually regardless of type, a jack is prone to failure: they are designed to raise and lower, not to hold for long .
A jack stand on the other hand is a solid piece of metal and is designed to hold. Provided the car is on level ground and wt. is evenly distributed.
How can you work ,all your work, in one hour only?
How can anybody (all over the world) complete a DIY in limited span of 1 hour only?
What do you recommend if not a jack stand then, if one wants to work on a car ??
As you own, I too own 2.5 to 3.5 tonne Floor jacks and different kinds of rubber enforced jack stands. If you want to keep you car on jack stands you should by Rubber enforced Ramp often you see in the workshops. Somewhere this mentioned in Engine builder magazine.
Longest work is clutch overhaul that too as per service manual 1.25 hours and suggested to use ramp only.
One can buy Rubber enforced Jack stands as a standard equipment alternative to ramp.
