Re: About to buy a Clio Dci... advice please!

I've been in half a dozen 65's and the clutches have all been fairly heavy and all cable operated.

The sunroof squeaking can be eliminated by squirting a little silicone spray into the joints. If it leaks, unbolt it, throw away the gasket and silicone the frame back in.

The doorcards all look tatty, because they're poorly designed, your arm rubs the fabric. Same with the seats, the fabric lasts a long time, but stains badly.

If there's any rattling at the front, rest your left foot on the brake, if the noise goes away it's because the anti rattle clips on the brake pads need tweaked to reach the calipers. Common problem, sounds horrific and is a good negotiating point. Takes all of 5 mins to fix.
