We bought the Scenic as we needed the space for my new baby daughter and a 2nd car to work out travel to nursery and wifes work etc. I bought the air and pollen filters a couple of weeks ago and been trying to find time to fit them, then sat working my way through the forums (already used to sort out my stuttering engine - ignition coils ) - to find out where and how they go, both were fited within 20 mins.
The ignition coils took me 45 mins, (excluding time in the garage - see below) and cost me 52 incl shipping from the UK (for the set). Overall you guys have saved me about 700 euros, the garage wanted 480 to supply and fit the coils and another 250 to investigate and correct the cabin smell, he pobviously knew what it was from what my wife tanslated.

Next job... fix the cabin heater thermostat.. on full only.. seen the post.. taking out the dash top to find the resistor pack this weekend.

I'm a computer geek by trade, swore I'd never get my hands dirty with my car, might as well have shown me a knitting pattern .. always traded comouter fixes for car fixes... but having some (frustrating) fun and a great sense of achievment doing it myself now!

Anyway enough rambling on... big thanks and chin ups to everyone. Superb help.

Cheers :D !!!!

bobbydog: nice fix, going to have to sort mine out a bit better as it has all the wrappings of a manic mummy currently!

tahrey: hear you on those torx screws and the ignigtion coils.. nightmare.. and I'm 189 euros lighter as the local garage had to be involved to drill out two of them for me. (I have a nice set of torx drivers and bits ... now!)

glad to hear we have helped you out Brit_rich and thanks for the positive feedback.

but 189 euros to drill out 2 small torx head bolts thats about 150? ahwell, atleast you are all sorted now?

Re: How To - Megane1 2001 1.6 16v air filter replacement

Recently I attempted to change my filter. Took the old one out no problems. However I struggled to put the casing back in, there is hardly any room to work with. After about 10 min of fiddling I managed to screw it back in. Went for a test drive and couldn't stop noticing my wee 1.4 sounding like a turbo . The casing was not put back in properly and it kept making this deep noise when over 2.5k RPM.
It took me another 15 min to put it back properly.
