Re: RX4 Rear Door Problems

Hi Tim,
All safe and well here. Wife and sons works were stopped for most of the flood week due to power being cut to the suburb. Neither business actually went under so that's great.

The TDC problem is a common one and the connector issue is one of them too.

I found cleaning mine was all that was needed. Another mate down here had the loom you mentioned replaced under warranty due to water ingress from a bonnet seal leak.
It's all documented in the Renault Dialogoy DVD actually so they do know about it.

What's Dialogy he asks? They are available on eBay and are just DVD rips of the Renault in house maintainence schedules and repair lists for most cars from late 80's onward to whenever the DVD you have was made.

Anyhow, issue here currently is the a/c compressor. Is an easy fix, just replace the compressor. Very simple as the later models are able to be done as a stand alone change and not requiring a full swap of TX valve and receiver/dryer because it's a different set-up on R134A gas.
Currently in OzRX4's garage:
2001 Megane Scenic RX4 Privelege Verve, 2003 Clio Privelege 1.4auto, {son's car}
