My Swift is giving me a different problem. I dont have a stereo yet, just upgraded the tyres. But when i drive alone at night there is a "tick tick tick" sound coming from the passenger seat side when I go over bumps. If someone sits on the seat the sound is not there, or cant be heard as its really faint and if two people are talking... almost non existant. i have had a hard time isolating these small vibration sounds... why does this just happen with my cars. The car has not even done 300 km. Please advise how to proceed further.

Default Reverse Gear Sound in INDICA XETA GLG

Hi,

I am facing similar problem in my new indica ( 1 month old). I hear rattling kind of noice when reverse gear is engaged, then I need to shift back to neutral & then again to reverse.

Is it a technical issue or is it cos to new car or when engine/gear box is not warmed up.

Also i face difficulties when shifting back to 1st gear. its not that smooth & kinda gets stuck.

Would apprecaite if anyone can help me on this.

Ok try doing this.

Engage hand brake>Press clutch>Netral>Start car>Press clutch completely engage first gear>remove hand brake> move car a lil to front (few inch is fine)>Pull neutral> Press clutch and engage reverse.

Again check the clutch play, i think thats the real culprit. How much has the car run?

Ensure when you press clutch, depress the pedal completely down.

Marlon,
I too have this problem on my Xeta GLS, more severe in the initial days. I thought to show this to the service advisor when i take it to first service.

I learned this way and its slightly reduced though not gone completely.

I have the habit of parking the car in either 1st or reverse (depending on surface) with handbrake engaged.

1) Press the clutch completely
2) Shift to Neutral
3) Start the engine
4) Press the clutch completely and hold for 5 seconds and release (while in neutral)
5) Release Hand break
6) Press the clutch again and shift to reverse and hold the clutch for 5 seconds and then release slowly to get it moving back.

I will try what Jaggu had recommended to see if this removes the sound completely.

This happens frequently on my Optra. I found the reason to be that I wasn't pressing the clutch fully.

After I get the sound, I just depress the clutch fully and the sound is gone. I am able to reproduce this sound by shifting into Reverse while keeping the clutch half-pressed.

Car has run only 600 kms...

The sound does not occur always but sometimes only...i am not able to reproduce the same. my guess is tat it occurs only on a cold start.. or as suggested it could cos of the clutch play.

anyways i try the suggested ways...

Guys, this reverse gear sound problem is a headache in most marutis so I guess we have to live with it . Even my Alto does it whenever she feels like , but not always. Just make sure that you press the clutch pedal completely.

Maruti hatches are good , but the gearshift is not one of their plus points.

Default A screech and a Tick

I am also facing a similar issue in my Swift. It gives a very light screech sound once I engage the reverse gear, occassionally. It goes off if I engage clutch again, put in neutral then to reverse.Anyways, I am planning to take it to the service center to get the clutch play checked, as suggested.

Another issue I have already noticed and escalated to service manager is the sound - a very light 'tick' sound (metallic sound) once I press / release the clutch, while the car in motion. It is prominent while releasing the clutch than while engaging.If the car is stationary, this sound will not occur.During the previous service, I was lucky to reproduce it for the service manager and he 'found out' that, it is because of the clutch cable and changed the cable. However within a week, the sound came back and it still persists. Now, planning to ask the service manager what could he do next with it?? Anyone has any idea of this issue so that I can tell the service manager before he 'invents' something else!?

I get a whining noise whenever i reverse the car and turn the steering to full lock. The service center guys siad that it could be AC belt which is loose and tightened it, but the problem is still there.

Any suggestion how to deal with it?

Default Re: Swift reverse gear sound

Gentlemen,
For last few days my petrol Indigo car is having a grinding noise, almost at all times when I put the car in reverse gear. Moreover I have seen that even when the car is stationery and is in neutral with my foot being off the accelerator pedal, there is a very low but noticeably distinct clicking sound, occurring both when I press and release the clutch. This even happens if I just press the clutch but do not engage any gear at all.

Is it my clutch cable which is somehow at fault? Is it somehow responsible for the noise I get when I put the car in back gear, possibly occurring due to inadequate play of clutch? Shall a replacement of the clutch cable be able solve this problem?

I shall remain very grateful if any kind and informed person please share his views.
Thanks in advance,
Regards,
Rahul Biswas
Calcutta
