I have got my RT XT after the third service at the end of two years of ownership. Told them not to do the wheel balancing. Ended up with a zero bill. They have changed the oil, assorted filters and the spark plugs. Gold AMC is paying off

Don't know if it is a good news or bad for existing owners.
But for sure the best news for new CS aspirants.

I am getting a Tak tak sound (intermittently) from near my front right wheel while driving, it comes on slight undulation on the road at slow speed. Any Idea what it might be?

I tried finding out by Pressing the suspension down at stand still, but am not able to reproduce it.

I initially thought it to be the axle but it is not specific to turning, it comes on straight roads as well.

Earlier the frequency was much less, now it come every 20-50 feet, have cut down driving and will take it to the A.S.S. shortly, anyone faced a similar issue in their cars, any brand ?

Check the Suspension Link Rods. Either they are loose or worn out.

I got this issue in my WagonR. While MASS diagnosed it as lower arm failure, my FNG told me that it is due to brake caliper pin failure. During the TD, he pressed the brakes to show that the noise was gone. I changed both, the pins and the lower arms and the sound is gone. Pins are very cheap while lower arm was slightly expensive, for my car.

Hi all,
I have been facing an issue with misfiring in Zest. The problem is detailed below in the thread
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ml#post4098795 (Tata Zest Revotron misfiring. Is E10 fuel the culprit?)

The verdict from Tata Motors is not to use E10 petrol with Zest. If anyone else have used E10 and faced any issues or nine, do update the thread above.

The service from Tata Motors has been really good. They were very professional. Kept the car for 2 days, gave me a loaner vehicle too and did a full diagnosis of the issue. The car feels better to drive now. They cleaned the fuel lines and tank, replaced spark plugs, replaced alternator bearing (that was for a noise while idling), fuel filter was replaced too. No part or labour was charged to me. Hope the issue is resolved.

Regards,
Arindam

Have they changed the Brake Fluid for you car? Manual says 2 years or 45k kms. Also check for the transaxle oil change.
