What would be the cost of replacing the clutch (spares + labour) OEM as well as Daikin. Please let me know.

My swift has done 32000+ kms & I had recently observed that while releasing the clutch in 1st gear, it shudders. This happens only in 1st gear.

It's very difficult to drive in heavy city traffic conditions, where I need to engage 1st gear often or even stay in 1st gear for 200 or 300 mtrs. Even the passengers could feel the jolt.

I have a doubt, whether am I not releasing the clutch properly i.e holding the leg for more time with clutch pressed half way (not smoothly releasing it)

But the chances are less for the above as also I had driven my friends Swift extensively in such conditions and never faced that problem.

Is this a clutch problem?

Do I need to get it replaced or any workaround is possible.

HI guys,
just bought a used ZXI..it is in pristine condition with 18Ks but the clutch seems to have some minor juddering....i guess its got max 15K left in it..but the spares are cheap so it should be cool. But my Hyundai accent got a new one at 85000 KM!!!!

I have similar problems on my Swift Vxi.I have a regular problem of a burning or acid kind of smell coming from the exhaust, and reduced power. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...swift.htmlWhen (burning smell on swift) taken to Maruti, they told that the problem was the timing belt and fuel clearance and had that fixed but the problem showed signs after a month. Now in first gear when i release clutch, there is a jerk at half clutch, and there is a jerk with every gear change. Now i'm thinking maybe the smell is from the clutch dying. During gear changes there is a feeling like there is clutch slip, there is a short lag before the speed kicks in, but that is not very often. Its only done 9k kms, i'm planning on taking it to Maruti, but what could be the problem? I'm very careful with the clutch, i rarely half clutch, i'm sure it can't be clutch torture.

Some thing funny happened after first service of my Swift.

Gear shift appears to slip in first gear and on the reverse gear. It does not get engaged in the first attempt. Wonder whats happening. I need to come back to neutral and rety to engage the gear. It was not there before the service. Did anyone experience the same ? Would appreciate if any light can be shed on this .

Thanks

Whoever said Swift has a weak clutch should drive Swift D. My left foot starts paining after an hour of drive on swift D. It has a strong heavy hydraulic clutch. But with petrol version there may be an issue with the clutch.

Hi Surprise,

Quiet a few have this same problem on the Alto too. Dont know if its appropriate taking this in this forum since it is about the Swift. But you can also look at this thread for any headers.

I also had similar issues during first 1k kms. Now after running in for few more hundreds I feel it better. I think it gets resolved over the usage

Swift Diesel clutch can be a pain in stop-go stop-go traffic, especially if you are doing it on an incline. Guaranteed to give a workout to your left foot.

But otherwise nice to use. Good feel.
