Default right strut shot

My 2004 zen right strut is gone. According to Mass I can use the car for another 10k and then change the struts. But, when I inquired from an after market garage, they said, I should change it immediately.
Current Odo reading is 34k. Please suggest, whether I need to change it immediately or not.
How much is it going to cost me ?

Default Noise from the Gear Box

I have a problem here and I would really appreciate your inputs. While accelerating in neutral there is a loud Krrrrrr.. noise from
the gear box which can be heard from the cabin itself. Last time when I left the car for service I could hear the same noise when
the bonnet is open (only while accelerating in neutral) and it was not so loud then, when I asked the service tech he told me there
is nothing to worry, its the 5th gear noise and its common. Any idea on what it is ?

Does the noise disappear when you press the clutch pedal?

You could get a krrrr noise due to clutch bearing failure.
Or it could be the play in the overdrive , but that noise is usually a frfrfrfrfr type kind of muted and directly roportional to speed and as he siad its quite common. But should it be there when in neutral.... ?

Valid point, I never tried that...Now I did and there is no noise when I press the clutch...Is it because of the clutch bearing ? Is it fatal ? How do I fix it ? Any idea about the cost ?....too many questions, sorry, kindly bear with me...

You will need to overhaul clutch, seems like a failed clutch release bearing. While replacing check all the other parts of clutch assembly if the clutch has done more than 20k kms and replace if necessary. Dont go by another 5k kms life, this is to avoid a repeat job in the near future.

Complete clutch overhaul comes to 5-6k, if only bearing it should be within 1.5k. Am not very sure about the current prices

it is normal to hear a slight noise from the gear box when the clutch pedal is not depressed;-this noise is the noise of the lay gear n shaft. When the clutch pedal is depressed,the noise disappears

When the clutch pedal is depressed and noise increases,it is a sign of clutch release bearing wear.

In your case,based on what you have mentioned,the release bearing is OK.

I can say with 50% confidence that the krrrr noise you're hearing is also quite normal(50% because I am not around to check)

I am hearing this "khir khir" type noise in my M1000 too from quite sometime and its coming from clutch housing. After reading this thread today I check after pressing the clutch pedal and yes the sound does disappear when pressed and comes again when released. This noise raise as we increase engine RPM.

I recorded the sound and want engine gurus here to listen and tell me what is gone bad, is it clutch bearing? then I might give a good to that mechanic who said "clutch bearing bilkul theek hai mene apke 500 rupay bacha liye" while changing clutch few months back.

It makes sense to change the entire kit
1) clutch release cable
2) clutch release bearing
3) clutch plate
4) pressure plate.
changing the later 3 means an entire job, full labour cost . the cable can be changed alagse.
