Re: Air recirculating flap clicking ~ FIX

Just posting to say thanks to all posters in this thread, in particular suckedsmarty and his photos.

Yesterday, my mother-in-law (an OAP, determined to hold on to her yr2000 Megane Mk1) rang me in a panic, fearing that her 'engine was about to blow up'. A quick listen by me then a delve into Renault Forums here found this thread, and diagnosed a recirculating flap problem. In 15 minutes I had cured the problem, all because of this thread.

My mother-in-law was all set to head to the main dealer who has serviced her car since new. You guys have saved an OAP a fair few quid....and made me look good too!

Renault Forums also diagnosed her TDC sensor problem, a few years back when her main dealer was scratching his guys rock!

BTW, we also found this video on youtube which shows you the internals

So, thank you.
