    I'm trying to get the security nuts off my car. I managed to get the front 2 off, but can't get the rears off. My key is damaged. It's a type A, if anyone has one I could borrow for a few minutes, please let me know!

    Hi I have a Trafic 2017 1.6 sport nav and all i wish to do is enable the accesory socket in the load area. I have found the 2 wires and plug behind the vent type panels on the rear door pillar but they have no power. I looked at the fuse chart in the hand book and assumed that the use must be...

    Scénic 1 squeaking noise in camshaft wheel area Hi everybody, My Scénic 1 (2003) 1.6 16v automatic makes a squeaking noise that seems to come from the back camshaft wheel. I have had mechanics look at it in three different garages, but they all cannot find the cause (unless I have a lot to...

    Does anyone know what might be causing this effect in the attached photo? It's a white triangular white area that starts on the right of the dashboard screen that displays the speedometer etc. It's strong white on the extreme right of the screen and then fades away to normal as it moves left...

    Hello, My Megane 1.5DCI 5dr Dynamique started making a light thumping noise at low speeds last week. Same again this weekend and had a look underneath and found this part hanging down from the front of the fwd left wheel arch. Tried to move it back in place but it came off. I've attached a...

    I've just bought a Laguna 2 and the other day it cut out on me with the message "Injection fault switch off engine" and refusing to start back up, it had happened before a couple of times, but it started straight back up - I have since learned that this was caused by it having no fuel, despite...

    Hi. Does any one have can clip in the Southampton or Portsmouth area. I am having some difficulties with glow plugs and had the software changed to the 7v fast plugs however it would seem that the new plugs I got are in fact the 11v version and I have read that you can select which type on can...

    Hi, Does anyone know of someone with the Clip diagnostic kit in the Rochdale or surrounding area please ? I have a fault on a 1.9Dci Megane, with the Check Injection light. Originally it showed MAF Circuit, replacing the MAF Sensor cured the running problem, but the light won't clear, so I...

    Hi, I'm having a nightmare trying to get a code reader to ready my Mrs 2008 Megane II. Is there anyone in the Warrington / St Helens area that has either a code reader that will tell me why the check injection is on or had Renault Clip? I don't mind paying just not the scandalous dealer prices...

    Hi, I'm planning on installing LED lights into the load area. On other vans, I have been able to remove the festoon bulb from the existing load area light and replace with an adapter to simply run the LEDs. As the master does not have a festoon bulb I will have to wire into the existing wiring...

    Hi all My ladie's Clio 1.5 DCi gave us the STOP and ENGINE! signs on the dash last night. Digital water temp at max. We stopped. It immediately dropped to 3/4 temp. We started up and drove on. It stayed at 3/4 temp. Then on the way home (we went to a party of course!) it happened again, but...

    Evening Guys. Got a strange high pitched squealing coming from the Drivers side front wheel area. It happens when cruising in the region of 10-30mph and is a high pitched squealing noise that stops when I press on the brake even a tiny amount. Any ideas? Planning to jack it up, take the...

    I drive (well, 'operate') a 2002 Megane Coupe 'Privilege'. Ahem. My Meganitis has been flaring up badly recently. Not least due to a problem I paid £380 to have 'fixed' but which remains. The problem: After a drive of at least 40 minutes when the car is nice and warmed up, any slight bump...

    Hi, looking for the measurements from the bonnet hinges to the slam panel to see if the metal work has been moved after hitting a deer!! Glued and rebuilt the bumper (for now) and the bonnet seems to have moved back about 10mm but sure that can be corrected by adjusting the hinge bolt points...

    Hi, I get a slight hissing sound when I drive the car but when I press the brake pedal, the sound goes. When I release the pedal again however, the sound returns. Also the sound only slowly fades away once I turn the engine off. To me it seems as though some air might be escaping from somewhere...
