If the warranty is still valid invoke it and ask the service supervisor why its happenning again.

Check master and slave cylinder .
If needed bleed the system and fill fresh clutch fluid.

What are the exact functions of the master and slave cylinder and how does one know if it has failed?

I got my clutch replaced and few days later it came to being hard. The whole assembly was changed but no improvements. Am now suspecting the slave or master cylinder.

What are the signs of clutch wear? My palio D has 36000K on the odo. I have to press the clutch more than i did earlier before shifting the gear. Even then the gear shift is not smooth. Earlier the gearshift was very slick. Also there is a jerk in the power when the clutch pedal is released only half way. What would be the price of clutch replacement for Palio?

Satish, check clutch fluid level.
If required, replace it after checking the condition of master & slave cylinder by a good mech.
I dont think u need to replace the clutch.

My Zen 2000 carb has done about 90K and still on original clutch.
@ satish : your clutch seems to be ok check the cylinder and the fluid.

Finally changed my Octavia TDi's clutch at 130000 kms. My lancer had crossed 1 lac kms and i think it can easily do another 30-40k.

Reviving a buried thread: Never changed clutch components in the last 10 years.

Maruti SS80 (2002 - 2005): 146,000 km on odo, driven about 28k km, not needed clutch work while I had it.
Maruti Zen (2005 - 2007): 122,000 km on odo, driven by me about 19k km, no clutch issues while with me.
Accent Viva CRDi (2004 - till date): 105,000 km. Original clutch.
Maruti Swift ZXi (2006 - till date): 38,000 km. Original clutch.

The life of the clutch is also dependent on the initial manufacturing process.

A few batches of the Alto came with defective clutches that failed fairly early. Mine was one of these, it failed at 14,000 kms and replaced free under warranty. Another Bhp-ian (akroy) also had the same problem with his Alto with the clutch failing at around 30,000 kms.

Can some one point to a thread/link on how to detect when the clutch is getting weak or its time to replace?

I just had my clutch system overhauled at 1.54 Lac kms. in my 2003 model Qualis.

The total bill was under 8000/- including the servicing cost.

Of late it was only doing about 400-420 kms on a full tank of fuel. Though a full tank has 50 liters every tank up was between 42 to 45 liters.

The car felt sluggish and noisy..somehow the engine always felt a bit out of breath and strained in the past few months.

It is now faster and quieter not to mention a marked improvement in fuel economy figures..

After the clutch overhaul the car did 482 kms and 42.8 liters of fuel was put in. This came to an average of 11.3 kms per liter in all city driving with air conditioning on at all times!

It literally feels like its a brand new car again!..
