Default Baleno Clutch

Guys,

I drive a 1.4 Years Baleno and logged 6000 KMS.

The clutch pedal was very loose and the enagaging position had moved towards the upper end. The MASS guys tightened the screw under the bonnet, now the pedal is tight but the engaging position is almost the same but it jerks when released at a higher speed

Eg when I am above 40 KMPH and move to the third gear from the second.

Is this a expected behaviour your thoughts...
What's the right way to adjust the clutch???

hey dude please ensure that it isnt over tightened because it can cause a Clutch Ride. (Guys correct me if I am wrong). Take it back and get it checked if you think its too tight.

Confused by the 'if' in your statement. Do they give MGA as standard or SGP as standard ? Or is it random ?

No such issues with my clutch .. nearing 11K kms.

The baleno clutch is MGP & works very well, thanks. kiranpashtakar only has some play adjustment problem. Some good communication between him & his mechanics could fix that. i think prashanth has replaced his clutch (dont know why) with a SGP from the local grey market. Most of the time, these are cheaper than the MGPs. i did the same with my 1000, but that was after 70k kms. the clutch felt better than new

you really shocked me with your response, for a moment i thought you were so drunk & starving that you had to eat a few letters in between. LOL

Please correct me if i am wrong. As far as i know, in maruti, there are certain parts that are MGP & certain parts are SGP. there is no interchange between them. it is listed in their spare parts catalogue. if your clutch is listed as MGP in the catalogue & your dealer says he has fitted a SGP, either he is taking you for a ride or he has gone out of the way to please you by procuring the SGP in grey & fitting it in your car. either way, you are a happy man & thats all there is to it. cheers

Guess I spoke too soon .. although the presumed problem is different.

Had been to the workshop to correct the alignment (which they had screwed up slightly during 3rd service). I asked the Service Enggr, whether the clutch was a bit tighter than normal. He said yes, a bit. And also mentioned there was a bit of jerking. All the half clutch city crawling seems to have taken it's toll. He recommended changing it under warranty now rather than let it deteriorate.

Should I ?

If you're getting it for free under warranty yeah why not? It's gonna save you an expense later on!

Seems like the dealer is going to cover 50% of the costs under warranty. And will cost me around 1500/-.
Are such clutch repairs normally covered under warranty ?
