General Clio Stuff

Hi all, my 1st proper post here!

Well we have had the Clio since Monday and ive now had a chance to look over it properly. I had to 'fix' the blower motor by bending the elements in the resistor pack together, so now the fan goes something like 1,2,1 lol but at least it has a go, the heater isnt very good though, but I have now changed the antifreeze, my god it was old, alot of corrosion .

Also did an oil change, again very old but no problems there.

Some stuff to do, adjust valve clearances, its quite tappy (anyone have the procedure for this, the last one I did was an OHV Fiesta years ago!), fix the RCL receiver as I think the next issue has broken it, yes it has the sunroof leak, so going to have to reseal the frame to the car and the glass to the frame, I will also make sure the aerial is sealed. I also need a new headlight switch as the highbeams dont work with the headlights on, and a new engine bay fan as its plenty to do on it but its such a nice little car to drive I dont mind. If anyone has any tips for me, do let me know, thanks!

Re: General Clio Stuff

Hello 1.4_RT & welcome to the forum You say the heater isn't very good + a lot of corrosion.

This is often a neglected part of looking after the general maintenance of the car, every year we hear the same problem.

The cooling system needs draining and it need thoroughly flushed out, including the heater matrix, this need repeating approx every 3 years to retain the cooling of the car and the integrity of the heater.

Hope this helps
