Clutch appears to have given up. Calcutta doesn't have the part in stock. Will have to find out at Patna and maybe arrange for a flat-bed.

A friend can arrange parts if it won't be available at Patna, lets see how things go. Shall up-date.

Car is at 1,03xxx mark. To me, clutch appears ok [it goes all in & doesn't come up] as when you mash the A pedal, it is going to pin you back to your seat.

The master cylinder appears the culprit to me. Will check & revert/update as to how things go.

Can you explain a bit more on why do you feel clutch has gone? Any warning signs you got before it happened? May be useful for others

I don't drive the car everyday. This is my cousin's car. Driver/chauffeur said me today that he was feeling as if something is wrong with the clutch for past couple of days, so there were signs.

But the issue is yet to be pinpointed. Let that happen, shall update.

Cost 2200 for Oil and 300 for Labour.
Same story with my dealer here. They received the wrong part number for the Haldex oil, and sent it back. Now due to receive the correct part on Monday, and hopefully receive the car then. Another 5 days gone for a regular service thanks to parts not being available.

Even when their customers find the right part nos. for them, they manage to order the wrong parts. That has happened in my case earlier. These guys deserve to be

Thankfully things have improved with the new dealer in my place. But I am tired of these service centres anyways. They are not meant for people who really love to pamper their cars. I am yet to find an authorized dealer with that level of service, atleast in my area.

Slave cyl and Thrust bearing??? if it's that then you have to take off the GB & all to get at it. at 1 lac plus would they recommend changing flywheel and Clutch assy too?

If it's the Slave cyl & Thrust Bearing assembly then I've been through it at 14k kms

We are not getting any update save for that parts are being air couriered. Didn't know air courier takes 4/5 days.

Skoda has unethically made my cousin transfer Rs. 50,000 to their account in the name of spare parts. I shall keep you people posted. This is for the first time I have heard a company asking its customer to pay for spares beforehand.

You can improve this by damping. There are various damping mats available. However i am not sure how much can be improved

My Yeti has been sitting idle for a couple of months now as I've been using another car The Ecosport which I got recently. I crank it up at least every fortnight. Its just crossed 71k Kms. Its due for another full service. Have to get the Haldex Clutch Oil change done as well. After scouting around here and elsewhere on the Internet, the part number for the oil is G 055 175 A2. There have been issues with availability of this oil in the past. Thankfully it is available in stock. Will update as soon as I have it changed. The only other query I had was if the Haldex 4 unit also requires a filter change?

hi,
Fellow Yetians has Skoda changed some policy around extended warranty ?

The fuel flap of my Yeti has been behaving erratically lately. I went to JMD Kandivali to have this fixed and as per the service adviser, I am required to leave the car at the service center for 4-5 days as per standard extended warranty process to have this fixed. Last I had an issue with ABS sensor I had taken it to Senator and they had fixed it under 2 days covered by extended warranty. Never had to leave my cars for so long for an extended warranty replacement with Maruti/Honda. I am not comfortable leaving my car with the service center for so long for such a minor issue. I understand this can be fixed within a day.

Can someone please enlighten me?

Regards,
Faraz.
