The belt should be around 500 rupees. Labour charges will be high and may be above 1000 in an ASS.

This is from my general experience of replacing timing belts at FNGs. ASS costs may be significantly higher, especially labour.

One of the rear speakers of my 1.5 year old XTA is making distorted sounds. Any idea if speakers are covered under warranty?

Everything is covered. Do get the connections checked too, to preclude the possibility of any electrical issue causing it to malfunction.

No its not an electrical issue, some specific frequencies ( in the low freq range) are making the noise

Does it happen regularly ? Did you get the spark plugs and ignition coil checked ?

Yes this is regular. Spark plugs and ignition coil , why should they only trouble on cold engine? I will get it checked though.

If you have a problem with intake - fuel or air, it should happen at all temperatures. I suspect it is electrical therefore - possibly weak battery or issue with the ignition, spark plug etc.

About a year back, my Nano's battery simply died while commuting back home, since I knew it was going to fail I was able to jump start the car several times in traffic because the engine was hot and managed to reach home.

I did see an ignition coil error in the OBD reader, and hence now changing it. Will update if it solves the problem

I guys

I am facing a strange issue with my 2010 Nano. At times the car doesn't crank. It feels like the self is stuck. Like it will make the noise of making the contact but the starter won't move. Now if you keep cranking back to back without stopping the car cranks. Also if you leave it for few minutes it will behave normally. Any idea what could be the issue?

Could be the starter motor or the connections leading to it. I faced this in my first Nano (2011) and think they changed the starter motor and something else under warranty.

Do you get a click noise when it does not crank ? What is your battery condition ? Did you get the starter checked if it is able to draw enough power to crank. A good battery shop should be able to check the battery , alternator and starter i.e check the voltage when you try to crank , when the engine is running etc.

Thumbs up Re: TATA nano - List of ALL issues

Was having an odd whirring sound from the front. I suspected that the AC fan bearings were gone. Trivandrum Motors replaced the AC condenser assembly in warrantly. Just charged me 70/- for a tube of Anabond to resolve a leak in coolant tank mount.

This looks like a non speaker issue. I opened/closed the hatch door 2 days back after a long time and the sound disappeared right after that. Now it has come back after driving 800km...probably the sound distortion is due to resonance of some part near to the speaker happening at a very particular frequency ( 400-600 Hz is my guess). Yet to identify the source of resonance.
