Default Issue with clutch on M800- please advise

Hey All,

My 800 (2006 model) was due for service at 20k kms. However, due to various reasons, I have not been able to get it serviced in time, and it is now running at 21.7 k kms. For the past few days, I have been noticing that the normally butter-smooth clutch is a little hard and has a distinct grinding feel to it when depressed during gear changes.

My question is- is this because of the fact that the car is overdue for service? Or do you think there is some other more serious problem? Otherwise the car is fine. I am normally very particular about services, and have maintained the car in pristine condition till date.

Please help! Need your advice on this.

Clutch plate may have an issue and if not rectified it will spoil the flywheel which can be an expensive option,this is a regular wear & tear for all cars you can either use MGP clutch assembly or Bosch.

Usually a M800 clutch lasts a minimum of 40 k kms if used as per specifications, You cant guarantee a lifetime of any moving parts BTW.

Get the clutch replaced asap since yours is almost a new car. I'am running the non asbestos valeo clutch and have covered almost 35k kms on it.It has also towed some heavy metal thrice over long distances and still running good.

There are imported clutch available which are good for M800 priced around Rs.3000.

Hi Pavan and Jayraj,
First, thanks for your inputs.
Second, I want to stress that that grinding feeling is very minimal, and I noticed it only sinc till date the clutch has been very smooth. No problems with gear shifts though. So can i drive for a couple of days more?
Third, Maruti A.S.S. is a good place to take care of this problem? Or do I need to go someplace else in Bangalore?

Grinding noise may be indicate problem with the clutch cable rather than the clutch itslef.If you are having problems while changing gears or if you
are experiencing jerks or drop in pickup etc then that might indicate a clutch problem.
Best is to give it to a MASS for a checkup.
