Propshafts are also a common problem,although now they can be repaired by certain specialists rather than having to replace the whole unit (around 800 from Renault),there is a thread on here all about the props so it would be worth using the search facility on here and having a quick read.
my turbo is starting to whistle but still have power! any one know where to get a new turbo cheap? and is it easy to replace at home or is it an engine out job?

cheers drewps
