Some pics that i clicked today. Clutch brand used by hyundai SEKO.
The master cylider was working fine but the mechanic screwed up big time. Air got in the system , he tried to bleed but the part didn't circulate any brake fluid.
Shocked after checking the price at 4500rs for a new one.
Went to the local shop and he showed me some indian made cylinder for 1150rs.
Went to the second shop and i had a smile on my face after looking at the OEM symbol on thr packaging and even a bigger smile after listening the price of 900rs. Double checked the original part and bought it.
Same thing happened with brake pads also. Parts in hyundai packaging are sometimes 4-5 times the cost of OE suppliers. Still i am not sure if the part will survive or not just because of the price difference. The part is such if it fails , i will be left stranded.
Clutch make was SEKO. Will definitely ask for OE packaging rather than hyundai.
OE part. Surprised that i was able to buy this from a local shop.
Paid 1400rs labor for clutch change and service.
Total clutch job including master cylinder costed me less than 10k. I just hope the part doesn't fail.

There are lot of fake stuff coming in oe packaging an instance was when I was looking for replacement front pads for my Verna a shop quoted for 1900 for a set which was kia original part and fits Verna called up my fng who right away asked me to decline since those pads tends to squeal after some kms of usage went back to ASC and got the part over the counter along with drive belts and pulley and went back to fng and fixed everything.
Coming back to the Clutch master cylinder I am shocked to see it been on sale for such a small amount
that's is the main reason i buy parts from the kashmeri gate market. what you are saying is common in the market where i get the car's serviced. but yeah i was able to get this oem part in the same market.
anyways my car has covered around 20k kms since last brake pads changed and this is the current condition of the front brake pads.
i didn't have problem with the kia packaging rear brake pads.
