Newbee Scenic questions
Hi all - just purchased and collect tomorrow a Sept04 Grand Dynamic 120 Dci. It is ex. Renault fleet and done 55K miles but that was reflected in asking price (Purchased from main dealer). This is a second car for us and will be used by my wife covering about 5K miles year so was not too worried about the 55K on the clock now.
Anything to watch out for over and above the
concerns I know about ?
For info. I live with the daily fear of
failure as I have a BMW 320D - it is a common problem on that but for different reason. As far as I can tell the Renault issue is
caused. On the 320D it appears that the
seperator filter is never called up for replacement. Eventually it blocks up and causes excessive smoke, this gets worse and eventually the excessive sump pressure blows the
seals and we have the same situation as Renault - runs on its sump
and pops !
I have cleaned the
on 320D as it does get clogged and cause performance issues - is it as easy to get to on the Renault 120Dci ?
Thanks in advance
