is it something like tun tun tun sound from the rear, it certainly sounds like a pendulum, or two metal rods hitting each other. I think you missed this on my thread. If this is the culprit, then its nothing but two jumping rods in the boot. These are two diagonal rods under the rear speaker tray area, and these make noise when they hit each other. Small pieces of plastic foam between the two will do the need full. I am 99% sure it must be because of the rods.
Damn GC, at times I wonder if I should even bother going to the A.S.S. guys. You have all my answers, and always.

Cheers bro! Will check it out.

Asian Motors in delhi knew what it was as soon as I told them about the problem. This was when I bought the car.
thanks GC, I also have been facing this tun tun sound for a while. Used to stop in middle of the road to tighten it up. Made complaints on each service but nothing happened. Finally after reading your post, I applied one foam ( bath scrubbing foam stolen from wife) between the two springs. Wow .. noise is gone forever.

Attaching some pictures:
A rubber part which goes along with the pin is broken (right front wheel)

On the left front side, there is a rubber sleeve at the end of the caliper pin which is missing. Someone had put a rubber band instead. Now, that has been removed and a plastic sleeve has been put instead.

Also brake pads were replaced around 20000 KM ago. Maybe they will go on for another 5-7000 KM.

Quick general question:
Where do we get the spare fuses for Cedia? Are they specific to a car model? Or I just need to know the Ampere rating and buy something from outside market?

It really does not matter, the fact is that their vehicles are going to outlast their company and that is what counts. Usually it is the other way around.

I have seen that thread and the other related thread (Hindustan Motors sinking? To report to the BIFR)

Frankly, I don't see any of this making any major impact to me or to the automotive sector in general, in the near future.
As of now, most of the content is either speculation or historical analysis.

Let's enjoy our rides while we still have them.

I was reading your ownership report and found this a little funny back then it used to be 5,500!

Today a single headlight assembly costs Rs23,000 each

That price was for Depo made headlamp assy. The Stanley one was around 16K back then.

Update: Car has completed 1,20,000 KM.
This month drove more than 3600 KM on two trips.

Other than some trouble with the AC (temporary) and the caliper pins making noise (again), there are no real issues with the car.

Got new seat covers and carpet for the car. The car looks much better from inside now.

I will post some snaps after I clean up the car.
