How much will that cost pro circuit?

Last week, I gave my car for servicing. It went to some major work as they seen rust in the front coil portion, that would start water leakage. Took my baleno after a couple of days. However, on driving, I realised a khat khat noise that has started when I turn the steering to my right & there is a bad road. Went back to Vitesse & met the service advisor. He says that the steering column is gone kaput & the replacement will cost 50k. It's a real big coincidence that this has happened the same time I gave my car for service. I feel that the diagnosis is completely incorrect. Pls give your expert views.

Get a second opinion. My car has this too - sometimes - I think when turning left. I've been assured by my service advisor that it's nothing to worry about.

At the most, check out the tie-rods and the lower arms. These have been replaced in my car.

I replaced power steering assembly 6 months before and it costed 50K. There was noise when i rotate steering on either side and steering was getting very tight and slowly i noticed power steering oils are getting leaked. ONe fine day power steering gave up and i had to replace it.

I too get kat kat noise since last 1-2 months. It was coming up, when car goes over pothole, hard braking or quick acceleration. But starting from today it's getting more frequent and irritating. I'll check the struts and lower arm. Lets see.

BTW what happened to your noise issue?

My 2007 baleno ran 36K has this suspension issue. I contacted Maruti and they provided this quote. They are quoting 23K for parts only.
I've attached the parts details which they are quoting. Do you think it's reasonable?

The lower arm quote looks ok to me. I replaced the set on my car for similar prices.

TAIWAN OR KOREA , I have already covered 25k without any problems as of now which includes a Delhi - Kochi drive too. Pretty happy with the stuff. I dont mind spending another 10k after 40k for the paid price.

I also recently got the front suspension overhauled. The details of the work done is in my baleno thread. The parts are all SGP and the entire bill came to 40040. I was told that one of the part is similar to that of an esteem and saves you about 2800 INR.
