Raj, is it different from the Nippon Manual link that I have posted in the previous post to yours?

That is why I posted it, Raj!
That's the complete manual.
You can click on each pic to see it enlarged.

You can even take a print out and make a booklet of it!

Thanks Raj, let me give one more try at G3 the 2nd service is due this week end.

The engine is still revving high & the play in the clutch is very much noticable:

5th Gear:
80 KMPH - 2000
90 KMPH - 2500
100 KMPH - 2900
105 KMPH - 3000

Anyone else having this *trouble*?
I had the same problem, got it checked and reset by the Nippon guys, now the range is over 100 mts.

I was also told that the manual dosent come with the factory fitted units. I got the manual after I lodged a complaint on mail to M&M. The same was sent to the Dealer from where I collected it.

Default Scorpio Clutch release bush spring

Have any Scorpio owners here (of the 2.6 and the mHawk), faced any issues with the clutch release bush spring?

Apparently, the lubrication leaks out, and there is an annoying friction that develops as you depress and release the clutch. Nothing dangerous, however - extremely annoying!

For some reason, with this issue, I also feel that the engine is straining more as I rev the car. Basically, I feel the nvh levels are higher at lower RPM levels (1st, 2nd and 3rd gears). Is this what other mHawk owners face? I would love to have another trusted mHawk owner try my car out and tell me what the scene is.

I went over and got it lubricated, but the issue is back. I have also taken another independent opinion at VST Motors in Chennai just to be sure. They say that this is a normal issue on the Scorp's and have even talked to M&M about this, but no news from them. Apparently, 99% of Scorpio's suffer from this problem (and those that dont - apparently, the owner's have gotten used to them).

What do you guys think? just cannot place my finger on whether I am being very finicky and touchy about this.

Cheers

my hawk is 1 year old now, touch wood, no issues with the clutch release
bearing.

NVH levels are HIGHER at LOWER rpm, strange!

I've had no problems with the clutch.
I believe this problem appears on vehicles after mid 2007 or so.

My clutch after being depressed comes back slowly and I feel just before coming fully it takes a break. Is it what you are talking about?

Hmmm...the higher NVH at lower RPM is something I am going to check again. Maybe the engine needs to free up further? I have finished a 1600 klicks now and have started getting more aggressive with the car.

I find the sound insulation on the Scorpio absolutely worthless. My FIAT had factory fitted sound installation that was leagues ahead.

Your clutch set up is different - and hence you are lucky.

I am not sure...its a cricking sound when you pump the clutch in and depress. It goes crick crick crick, and its basically the spring that lacks lubrication. If your issue is different, I recommend having this clutch spring bush looked at.

I have been told that lubricating this every service should be it. Still annoying.

again quite strange!
i find the insulation in terms of engine noise, road noise & tyre noise to be better than both the innova & safari.

Drive a diesel fiat ,and you will know what good sound insulation is. In the scorp i can hear most of the noises on the outside. The fiat muted a lot of it. These europeans really know how to pamper you.

Bah, screw the innova and safari. I hate getting second best. I will figure out a way to just insulate this thing myself. And i am going to kill if a solution is not found for the clutch spring.
