If I am not wrong, baleno's would be somewhat more coz the parts are hard to comeby. I guess clutch overhaul basically involves opening the X-mission, cleaning the housing, greasing the requisite springs as well as checking the clutch/pressure plates for their wear and tear. The release bearing would also be a part of that. Usually, it's opened only when there's a change required.

That's correct! Thing is, I could have lived with the clutch for some more time but then I always knew it'd need a change soon. I am still living with the cracked windscreen but mechanical fitness is always my priority!

I have (without knowing) ridden on tubeless tyres which had nails (though not five) lodged in them for quite some weeks before they were detected, removed and the puncture filled. Never had to worry about the tyres.

I have always used tyres with stock specifications (and on stock, steel rims) and have stuck to the recommended tyre pressure and haven't had any problem with tubeless tyres even after punctures.

Since you have had about five punctures taken off the tyre at the same time, I would suggest swapping it with the spare tyre.
As of now, it's holding good, have been driving on it for quite sometime now. Changing back to stock specification (rims atleast) is definitely on the cards but I might have some issue procuring them.Anyways, will wait till the present set lasts.

IIRC, a clutch replacement job for my Baleno cost around 3.5 to 4K a couple of years back. Though can't recall now whether the cable was changed. Lubricants were not part of that cost.
