Re: CLIO 1.5 dci HARD TO START - Any ideas?

In that case it could be the main glow relay that's nr the battery follow the leads from the glow plugs but they are expensive so you could do with being certain it's that and I don't know off hand how to test them.
Cant see it being anything to do with the air in the lines as most have some and it would not stop the glow light coming on.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
