Had taken my car for a quick check, basically for Engine Oil & filter change, I was getting sound intermittently and thought the Stabilizing Mounting bushes which I had fitted may have given way.
So, on visiting the Service centre, when I told the team they first decided to check for Noise, it turned out bushes were fine and absolutely there was no noise.
The vehicle was handed over to a new guy with Good experience.
On closer inspection it was figured out that the silencer joint had become loose and it required tightening of the joint. Below is the pic:
Post tightening of the silencer joint bolts, the intermittent noise stopped.
Then luckily the Rear drum were opened up, to surprise the Rear Right brake liners were completely worn out.
So this needed replacement and I did give instant approval to replace.
The brake liners as only part is not available now, it is with complete set including the Sleeve Cylinder, I was told the whole set is now cheaper than the individual parts.
This new Liner set has self adjustment mechanism and I am not sure this mechanism increases the life or reduces the life and only time will tell.
The first set of brake liners were replaced at 88k km and now the second set also came for approximately 88k km.
Comparison between old and new:
Sorry for blurr pic.
Attaching the older version, post removal of brake liners:
New set of brake liners, to be installed:
Rear wheel shaft, sorry blur pic:
To Assemble the Brake liner set; the shaft has to be removed from the Torsion Beam of the Suspension set.
Then with new of brake liners, need to Assemble back.
Part cost for new brake liners is close to INR 5800 (BOTH SIDES).
