Renault - Espace - Various Problems
Hello to all on the Forum!
I have now joined the band of Espace owners, and have now started to find out the problems with my recent purchase (1994 RXE 2 litre petrol).
Currently I have found:
Air Conditioning - Compressor removed by a previous owner.
Anti Roll Bar bushes need replacing - slight knock when turning to the left.
Central door locking - not working on one rear door and boot.
Only 1 plip type key - I am now worried that when I change the battery this will stop working (looking at posts on forum).
Seems to have power steering fluid leak - haven't located it yet, but fluid on underside of engine.
Engine running a little rough - but last owner had only done 650 miles in last 8 months (I've done 300 miles in the last 2 weeks).
Headlight levelling not working - It looks like it is cable operated?
Apart from these 'little' problems I am impressed by the plastic body and galvanised chassis (no rust on a 13 year old car!), and the comfortable driving position (sometimes too comfortable when driving late at night!).
Would be interested in looking at a similar aged Espace to see what is missing from the air conditioning components ( I live in East Northamptonshire ).
Currently in Wibble's garage:
