  1. Swing arm coach bolts (under seat)

    Steering and Suspension
    No, didn't do a thing. I used grinder to take off the smallest amount of metal right at the narrow end. Make it a bit more pointy. This is the end that passes through the swing arm and does not have a job when in position. I used a very large socket and a 10mm threaded bar (B&Q) and an old...
  2. Swing arm coach bolts (under seat)

    Steering and Suspension
    Yes I thought of that, but I don't think it'll work as it's thin metal, and by the time I get it to the car and it touches the arm it will be warm again. I've had an idea, a bottle jack and a long steel pole, oh yes! It has to work. I'll let ya know.

  4. Swing arm coach bolts (under seat)

    Steering and Suspension
    I'm having a hell of a time getting the new bushes in, I take it that after market bushes are ok? I have been using a threaded bar, socket at one end and a three legged plate at the other (bit like the tool on ebay), but the bar keeps snapping. It's done this four times now. Is there a proper...
  5. Swing arm coach bolts (under seat)

    Steering and Suspension
    The threads were rusted to hell, and even when cleaned the nuts jammed up making the bolt turn. Being a coach bolt (with no hex head) there was no way of holding it to put force on the nuts.

    Hi, I'm replacing the swinging arm bushes on my Clio MK2, and have had to drill and cut six coach type bolts that hold the swing arm to the body (under rear seats). Can I replace them with normal bolts?

    Oy~vay my wallet my all ready, I think I'll take them out and give them a rub with a brillo pad and soak them in toilet cleaner. Like my mom's teeth. It's all right, she never found out. :)

    Injectors out and spray them or in the air intake? Not hat I've looked, but I bet the pipes to the injectors are moulded on, fragile, and hellish expensive, or I'd soak the internals.

    Hi, my Clio 1.2 8v misfire is still there despite the obd2 telling me there are no error codes. I have replaced the plugs and coil, no joy. Throttle body, crank and map sensor's cleaned. At tick over and at 2000 revs is when it is most noticeable. It's nothing drastic, I just want it...

    Thank you for your help. This morning I re attached the battery leads, same thing. I tried the trick in the video, and nothing. I was just saying to myself "Well that's it you've bricked the ecu", when I heard a high pitch squealing noise from around the engine. So I left the ignition on...

    I can't remember what doesn't come on. The battery light does, as does the engine, seat belt, air bag. Yes fuses removed and tested on Ohms. No I haven't tested the ones under bonnet, to tell you the truth I can't remember seeing them. Inertia switch?
