It can also be the boot lid and related mechanism - which is very poorly built

actually i get it from the right rear tire. not from the left. and i have never been able to experience it when i have a person in the back. happens only when the back is unloaded. never felt anything when the back was even slightly loaded.

i think since you are using DZire ,you may have understood the problem.
have you got any solution from the service centre.?what do you think the cause can be?my sound is like the "left tyre falling from some height""
do you face a problem with the speedometer also,or it rises and comes down perfectly.?
BTW how old is your car .?

this is quite simple!! not suspension, not the rear lid, not the tool kit!!!
just remove the rear seat from the locks, stick some small pieces of 2side tape to that buckle were the seat is attached and fix back the rear seat tightly!!! now ride and see!!!!
it worked for me!!!

The rear seat base in a Swift is not held by screws. The seat simply rest on two plastic plugs that get lose all the time. I am using pieces of newspaper to tighten those plugs.

This is because Maruti could not afford 2 screws to hold the seat down.
(this is not the case with japanese swift)

One can easily lift the rear seat and view the fuel pump without any tools !

@GTO : You are absolutely right. Most of the roads are in bad shape cos of heavy rains. Metro work is going on everywhere and they build temporary service roads in the chance if they have to block the main road. They are the worst ones and are all broken now.

@Ankit. I would suggest to get this problem to Authorised service and forcefully make them to the job. Insist on speaking to the mechanic who wold do the job after talking tothe service advisor. Advisors always have excuse for not doing the work, everything is perfect everytime for them. Explain the issue to the mechanic personally. Speak to the manager if needed.

The above mentioned way has helped me fix atleast 3-4 issues on my car which would still have been around had i only talked to the advisor.

Got my first service done from APRA AUTOMOBILES okhla,the above mentioned problem is still there.The manager says that he will get the car inspected from MARUTI official.
Now i met another guy who owns a Dzire OUTSID WORKSHOP,and he told me that his car steers towards left from day 1.He also mentioned that he knows 2 customers who have the same problem.Now i dont face this problem,but i feel that my left wheel is touching the brakepad.
Guys any suggestions.Most of the customers on T BHP have got their tyres changed.
mine are still the same JK.

Hi Ankhit,

> mine are still the same JK.

There can be cases of tyres leading to the car going right or left.

If you are referring to JK tyres that came with the car, I am using a couple of tyres from a Swift (165/80R14) JK Toronados in my Marina in the front axle. After about 12000+ kms I don't have any complaints.

thanks for your reply,i am not sure but i think there is manufacturing defect in SWIFT DZIRE(AND SWIFT)DIESEL.The problem of steering wheel going towards left is very common.I am waiting for service centres call so that i can get all the issues solved.

I am using a Dzire VDi from August 23rd-have changed the tyre's to Michelin XM1+ , usually travel alone-done 1.5K one month completed today and first service also done.

I am not facing any such sound or the car steering to the left/right-the car tracks true-the problem discussed here seems to be from the suspension.

Seats are unlikely to be the problem as the seat scab is fixed to the rear bulkhead unlike the swift.

Take the car to the show room when the maruti technicians come.

What month of manufacture is your car?
