Re: Clio 2002 1.2 Electrical Fault Light help

They want 145 for a Lambda sensor

Tell them to get the other work finished and buy a Lambda sensor yourself online for around 30-50. They are relatively simple to fit your self also, just need unscrewing from the exhaust and the electrical connection unclipping. If you buy a marque specific part then refitting is exactly the reverse of removal!

If the coils were faulty in the first place then it's quite possible over time that unspent fuel passing through the exhaust has knackered the sensor.....not to say that that is most definitely your problem though! Modern cars and their sensors for this and that eh, it can be a very frustrating and expensive cure sometimes!

Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
