You are spot on, Varun. I checked this morning and found that the drive shaft boot in indeed broken. Will have to fix it ASAP.
Get it done ASAP, with out lubrication the drive shaft will run dry.

It might cost around 2.5k for a new one. Are you using spacers ?

Oh that was sad. But how it wear out so soon. May be you have run it for a long time with out lubrication.

Was it done in MASS, then the price is reasonable.

Maruti 800 will get her new shoes within this week. They’re Michelin XM2. How much would be the approximate price for the set of four?

XM2 12" would cost Rs. 2700 per tire which translates to Rs. 10, 800/- for a set of 4.

An online store is offering 500 bucks off. If this deal is available at some real store, then I think can get the tyres for around Rs.10,000 (Including resale of existing set).

Since you are Delhi based, i would suggest you to avoid online purchase and go at different outlets. You will get a better dealer at shops over online purchase.

Yup. That’s what I will do. I don’t think online stores offer exchange facility.

You might find this amusing. Her pet name was ‘Dhanno’. A real workhorse indeed. Maruti 800 is the finest car I have ever owned and driven. In a short span of less than 10 Years, we have shared a lot of fond memories together but alas, I wish I knew that the end will be so miserable. Just hope that the person treats her well wherever she is right now. Enough said. I don’t think I would want to discuss about her any further. She’ll be in my heart and soul forever. Thread closed.
