swift diesel accelerator pedal issue
I recently noticed the accelerator pedal in my swift diesel being shaky-swinging left & right, took it to the dealer & they said its only a ply & arrested by putting a bolt nut, i was not clear, in few days i face the same problem even worse & more shaky,
Showed my car to a friendly local mechanic who clearly examined & showed the assembly out of its poistion & hanging in single bolt,
I took it again to teh dealer who said the assembly has to be welded for which the dashboard, brake booster,sheet & other wiring lying in that area should be removed after which teh work can be executed & quoted 2k.
Is this the correct way of doing?

This thread can by moved to the technical problems area.
Your car is out of warranty since it has clocked 6000 kms surplus (Maruti offers 24 months/ 40,000 kms warrenty-whichever is earlier).
If it is under extended warrenty, then this can be covered under it.
Instead of welding, replace the entire assembly since any jugaad work will cause long term problems.
Find a well equipped and competent maruti workshop to do this complicated job, preferably company owned Maruti service masters, if at all it has an outlet there.

If you have extended warranty then you can claim it, IIRC the standard warranty on the Swift is for 2years / 40,000kms
but shouldn't this thread be a part of the initial ownership reviews or the technical section??
EDIT: Just saw Sid's post about the thread location.
