Correct me if I am wrong, but , is it not true that Swift Diesel clutch is different than Swift petrol ? Or it is exactly same?

Its different and hydrolic unit instead of a cable operated one, much more robust with minimal failure chances. Gearbox issued were reported but i dont recollect any regarding the clutch.

Swift D clutch is a much improved and stronger clutch as compared to the one on Swift P. Diesel has tremendous torque and needs much stronger clutch.

Write to Maruti with all details. The link is available on their web-site. Their service Engineer will speak to you and these guys are pretty reasonable. Best to retain the replaced components so that he can inspect them.

Usually, company would discourage clutch claims under warranty from the dealers. So these guys take the easy route and simply say company has refused.

If the part has failed pre-maturely without mis-handling, then it ought to be covered under warranty.

i think writing to maruti and lodging a complaint would be the best solution to your problem,i have got clutch changed under warranty after writing to maruti.the dealer had flatly refused to change the clutch under warranty.

Since you have already paid may be after writing to maruti they may refund you the amount paid towards the clutch earlier
i am sure some of the TBHP members would be having contact details(email)of maruti regional office

Guys, I'll try to put up the detailed bill tomorrow. I am not sure whether the faulty clutch was returned to my dad after repair. I'll find this out later.

@ankit, thanks for the information. So we can claim clutch under warranty. How much time did the entire process take for you (filing a complaint and getting a response).

Guys, does any one of you have contact details of MUL regional office in Bangalore / Karnataka? I would like to proceed the way Ankit did and hope for a refund.

yes,in my case i got a call from the service centre after my service/complaint and they told that now i can get my clutch replaced.
i had written to maruti that my car has only covered 15k kms in 1.5yrs and had all the service records.the clutch problem was mentioned from the first service and hence it must be replaced.
since my warranty was getting over,i got it replaced.not sure what was replaced.
the car above was a 2005 baleno.
but i am not sure now will you get a refund or not since you have already paid the amount.

So it took you one full year to find that out!

Maruti's quality is not consistent at all. Owned 5 Maruti's so far, and had a frustrating first service expenience almost everytime. Not to mention, so was Honda's.

18K in my ODO and my clutch is 75% gone as per the service advisor. My car is in warranty but I do not want to go fight and get a similar clutch again. I am planning to go for an Exedy stage 1 clutch. What may be the cost here in Bangalore and where can I source it from?

Exedy stage 1 should cost you anywhere between 8 - 10k.

Vikram,
In layman's term, what is the difference between Stage 1 and Stage 2 Exedy clutches ?

Organic and Cermetallic is what the site says. I assume Stage 2 is more expensive than Stage 1.
