Expert`s comment:

The noise could be loosely fitted fan belt.Adjusting the same should solve the problem.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 07 July 2010

Brother nothing can be done for this. This is a very very common problem with Tata Vehicles, nobody can solve it. Only option you have for this is sell off this vehicle.

Answer by NITISH OBEROI 07 July 2010

Change of AC belt, may solve your problem, even after changing AC belt the problem is not solved then, I am totally agreed with Mr Nitish Oberoi's suggestion.

Answer by Jagjit Singh 07 July 2010

what an intelligent suggestion by our friends , if u cant take care of getting a belt tightened you should sell the car, next time if someone is having fever he might suggest commiting suicide or if someone has a boil in his hand he can suggest chopping it umesh the sound you are talking is nothing but a loose fan belt which needs regular tightening in the earlier version of indica.

Answer by Rajiv 07 July 2010

The sound come from belt for the reason of grip less running. Morning time the belt has dry & stiffness condition. So The belt don't having grip due to stiffness condition. Before We starting morning time [First time of the day] pour drizzle of water to the belt. The sound will not come. Your problem is solve. [First check the belt tight otherwise you follow the above procedure]

hahaha...this noise will always be there in indica after the car gets 3-4yrs old:)

Answer by Dipanshu 07 July 2010

stop haha eeeeeng like a stupid person if u dont know anything about indica .rightly said by shiva the noise is of a loose fanbelt either you get an original replacement or get it tightened at regular intervals.another once for all solution is replacing the pulley and the fanbelt with indica turbo or indigo's set which has 4 grooves and it does not make any noise.

Answer by Ashu 07 July 2010

See your Indica is quite old model. If you spending money on it to repair these things. It clearly means you are waisting your money. I had an indica 2004 DLS model which i finally sold because it had so many problems like weird noises of fan belt, faulty power steering and other countless problems. So until unless you exteemly love this car dont keep it sell it off.

Whatever suggestion Mr.Ashu and Mr.Rajiv has given is good but for new models. Otherwise I can challange anyone who can solve this problem even if you go to company workshop.

Answer by John 06 June 2016

check for all tension and idler pulleys in the timing belt assembly. They tend to wear out around 1lkh Kms . I have replaced the bearings in the alternator and all pulleys by 1.13lkh kms . indica is not a bad car if you maintain it properly
