  1. JKCS

    Thank you KMeeg. I consulted few people and decided not to apply there :). Thank you again for your thoughtful comments (y)
  2. JKCS

    Hi, I am planing to apply to JKCS for a lead level vacancy. Anyone know about their culture, flexibility etc?
  3. @Rumesh88 Thanks for your comment. In my case, I get the noise only at low speeds as you suggested. But I do not get the noise always. I get it only when the wheels are hot. And I don't get abs alarm (my car has abs). Should the hub be changed only if the abs alarm is triggered?
  4. Yes I understand your problem. And it's the same with me. There's no issue in parking brake, but when the adjustment varies it causes a noise when braking the normal brake. You can identify the problem more clearly if you tighten the parking brake to apply in 2 or 3 "kattas" as opposed to 4 or 5 "kattas". Then with little braking and sometimes with no braking at all that noise becomes prominent.
  5. Same thing happened to me and is happening again on my Elite. I have spent more than 25k trying to solve the problem. I replaced the drum and didn't solve the issue. The temporary solution is to adjust the parking brake. i.e. make it such that you have to pull the handle bit more higher. Then observe if you get the noise. It's a Rs.200 job.
  6. Vehicle Book

    It's KR.
  7. Vehicle Book

    Thank you very much guys. The postman brought the book today ??
  8. Vehicle Book

    I handed over docs to RMV on 10th of March. But they already confirmed me that the book was printed on May 27th. And their postal division told me that they don't keep the printed ones more than one week.
  9. Vehicle Book

    Thanks Sampath. Yes, that's what the post office also told.. They asked me to get the reference number. But again, with that reference number what can we do if the book is lost in the middle? Now I'm concerned if I would ever be able to get an original book.
  10. Vehicle Book

    That's sounds promising.. but will i get another original book, if they have already posted the original?
  11. Vehicle Book

    Hallo guys, It's been 4months since I applied for the book of my car. I got original book from the seller and applied for transfer the book under my name. I didn't receive the book yet. When I inquired from RMV they say the book has been created at the end of May. But when I inquire from the post office they say they haven't received it yet. They checked all the incoming records infant of me. Is there anyway I can get the book very soon. There's gonna be a problem, when the time comes to renew smoke test. Please advice.. Thank you.
  12. Services should be Provided by Fuel Stations

    Gayanath has a valid concern with a sensible opinion. Criticizing and trying to make fun of it only reflect the pessimistic attitude of most of us which deter progression as a nation.
  13. Brake noise when press lightly

    I have similar noise on my elite. This is after: 1) Rephasing disks 2) Replacing rebuild kit 3) Replacing brake pads 2) and 3) was done at the agents. I have taken the car to them couple of times now after the problem. But they don't seem to have a clue. And Asking to rephase the disk again. Any input is highly appreciated.
  14. Noise from rear when breaking

    I replaced the drum from Panchikawatte. It was 700g heavier than the OEM. I anyway went ahead with it as I had no other option. The noise disappeared after this. But after few days, the noise started to come from the other side . I recorded the noise from my phone: The problem now, is that neither the company nor the place I bought the first have has another drum
  15. Damaged tire

    No, not one. I was wondering weather the tyre shops offer to trade my old four tyres and get a discount for a new set. Because, my tyres set is bit new but I want to change them to get a larger size. (I hope my question does not deviate from the original topic )
