That is indeed a bit on the higher side but I suppose in this case more work needs to be done to fix the bumper up.

I went there in November last year (after reading good things about them on tbhp) to get the Manza's front bumper repainted and paid a total of 2200. Two spots needed plastic welds and some bumper clips were gone. I was more or less satisfied with the job and the paint matching was done alright, but I'm no expert on paint quality and workmanship. I had a quote of 1500 from one of the shops near Atul Kataria chowk too but decided to stick to Heera.

Does anybody know if there are any arbitration process for claiming damages when multiple parties are involved , and it is not entirely one's fault ? Who pays the damages in those cases ?
I'm guessing any capable lawyer's fee will exceed the repair costs in this case. Theoretically, yes, you can add multiple parties as respondents and that would be the appropriate thing to do if you take the legal route.

Manza has developed an annoying problem. Whenever the radiator fan comes on, there is a very strong vibration at the steering wheel, and the fan itself is also very loud. Anyone with a similar issue in the past?

@Tanmay - Thanks . I also thought so , hence , did not pursue it any further .

On the repair works front - the total bill came about 15K in total , included AC Servicing and change of Wipers . The Paint match quality was good . As well as cleaning . So even if it was expensive , I was satisfied .


However , after two weeks , One side of the Newly repaired bumper has come off again , looks like the Bumper Clip or something is gone . And this time without any external intervention . So I will take this again to Heera's .
(Didn't expect this to happen. )


I have one more problem with the car now , the Clutch pedal , when pressed down and held , for changing gears , remains pressed , and does not return back to its normal position after I lift off the foot. I have to manually drag it back . Then it works for a while , and same issue again .

I have searched this thread , seems like this is a known issue with Manza, and Clutch Cylinders need to be replaced .
I am planning to take the car to Heera's for both the work .

I went to Heera's today with the Car - to check the Clutch problem , and showed him the car. He initially suggested that the Floor Mats must be intruding with Clutch and wanted to cut a hole in the Floor Mats . But I insisted that's not the case , and he reluctantly agreed to look at it and replace the clutch cylinders.

I went back in the evening to collect the car. Then he informed me that he had (suspicion ?) replaced only the Secondary (slave cylinder) as he did not find too bad.

I would have been happier if he had replaced both , as I instructed him to do so.

Nevertheless, I decided to check Heera's theory . While driving back home, I felt the pressure had eased and the Clutch felt better , but does not seem to be 100%.
I still feel that the Master Cylinder had to be changed, too.

Anyway, I am going to drive for next few days and see if the issue is really resolved or not.

The secondary cylinder costs 1300/- , Break Oil , and Labour , some other sundry work and total bill was about 2K.

Also you can keep an eye on the brake fluid level in the reservoir from time to time. If the level falls, it might be a leaky master cylinder. The leaks in the master might also leave traces on/around the cylinder itself.

I got the master cylinder changed yesterday . And brake fluids topped up. Now the Clutch Pedal sticking to floors issue seems to have been "somewhat" resolved . I say somewhat , because , in spite of the cylinder changes , the Gear change remains a problem. It remains very very hard , also the car shudders , when moved from standstill. Looks like I may need a change of Clutch ?

I'm also wondering if I should head to TATA ASC for clutch changes , instead of Heera's / OR any FNG ...any suggestions ?
