Do petrol Lags come with far less insulation under the bonnet than my diesel has, or is it just that one?

This guide proved very useful to me. I don't think I could have worked out how to undo the heater bayonet without it, for one thing! As I posted elsewhere, I did it at the same time as doing a coolant change and flushing the rest of the system through, and the coolant in my car was in a disgusting state - it was brown, sludgy, and full of floating crud and rust.

I suspect had I cleaned the matrix out without doing a change, it would have clogged back up again within a week! Something to consider if you haven't changed it in the time you've owned it, even if the car has history - I've heard of main dealers neglecting coolant changes during routine servicing, because Renault themselves don't recommend an interval for coolant changes.
