Default Got it back

Yes, I got Iggy back today. They had to order a new driveshaft from Germany as the existing one had its thread stripped when they removed the bearing bolt cos it had been peened over and so caught the thread as they unbolted it.
I was glad to get away from the Swift but the Ignis is a little less powerful.

They, the garage, firmly blamed Suzuki assembly. Funny thing is I never doubted them as they said they had seen this before.

want to laugh. Saw the same thing on a shaft on one in for its 10,000 kms service today, looks like a factory stake mark on the end of 2 of the bolts, and they had a factory pen stripe on them. I will see if i can find anything in the online documents about this in the repair guides next time i'm logged on to the service portal.

Normally the only way a factory robot would fu#%-up a thread would be with human interaction - sabotage. The sad thing is, humans place too much trust and faith in other humans that are in business to make money, not friends.

these parts are mostly hand assembled, robots do not do driveline components usually.

yeah, but the marks on the one in the shop looked purpose done, not accidental, like they had been hit by a sharp edge and peened to prevent loosening

Pretty much what I was told! Imagine if I had waited to get the judder done out of warranty in a few years time and needed a new shaft!!!!!

OMG, these things are assembled in Japan. How do errors happen there?
