Re: Megane 1 faults

Megane 96 1.6 petrol 78000 miles, in past 18 months

Back door lock 1, solenoid failed (needed cleaning, long job) now second has failed.

Sunroof back gutters leaked into head lining, sealed with silicone.

Front nearside cv (thus also drive shaft), 200

Centre exhaust box (58)

Expansion tank (5) but probably failed (cracked) due to never having the coolant changed.

That 20 second immobiliser thing. Occasionally the radio will just go silent for a second and reset, minor niggle. Bit rusty, boot has weak gas struts.

Looks like a coil has now gone, but the car was cheep, think I'll go German or Scandinavian next.
