2012 Fluidic Verna/Accent Gearbox grinding issue solved
So I had a huge issue with my gearbox. Initially it just failed to slot smoothly into reverse and accompanied it with a loud grinding noise too. Later I had difficulties slotting it in 1st and 2nd gear’s as well and the clutch began to get hard too.
An Independent garage found that there was a leak from the Master clutch cylinder and recommended replacing that first.
The below pic shows how the master clutch cylinder looks like
After getting this part replaced and bleeding the brake lines to remove air. The problem was rectified fully. Everything functioned smoothly as normal.
Master Clutch Cylinder – 4,555 Rs
Labor – 300 Rs
The Authorized service center tried to fool me as usual by asking me to replace parts that were not necessary which you can watch on the video below.
