Re: 2 point question

Hello and welcome to the forum.

The dipstick is hidden right at the front of the engine under the alloy box thats bolted to the front of it.Renault often camaflague it by painting it brown.

And as long as the ISO connectors are still intact both on the car and on your replacement stereo then it's just plug and play.Depending on the make of radio you may have to swap the red and yellow wires to keep the radios memory when you switch the ignition off and also the hand controls by the steering wheel and the head up display won't work with an aftermarket unit.With some makes you can buy an adapter to be able to use the hand controls,others you can't.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
