  1. Transmissions
    Hi, I recently bought a Laguna 3 GT from 2008 with PK4008 gearbox and 2.0T 205hp engine mapped to 230hp by the previous owner. It currently has 114k mileage, I made around 3k miles so far. I noticed this wind-like whine right when I bought it when it was at 18" wheels in the summer, it was...
  2. Wheels & tyres
    Hello, I was replacing my brake shoes yesterday and the drums were rusted fairly bad. It took a lot of brute force to get them off, i had to reattach the wheel and boot it from behind to knock some play into them then I was able to get them off. Trouble is they appear to have split the bearing...

    Hi guys I have a 59 plate Trafic I bought a year ago, 80,000 miles, recently it has started to make a whining sound/aeroplane sound when speeding up and then the sound 'powers down' on deceleration. I took it to my local garage hoping it is a wheel bearing but I don't think it is as spinning the...

    Hello All, Back from the tranquility of a tropicl beach for the winter into the Renault world of obtuse. I rebuilt an F9Q motor and the gasket set included two silicone strips to insert in the groves on the rear main bearing cap. In my day a piece of cord impregnated with graphite or something...

    Can anyone tell me what size the rear hub nut is on '07 mk2 Laguna Grand Tourer so I can change the brake discs, please? My socket set ran out at 32mm so it looks like i'm going tool shopping tomorrow. My kind of shopping.... Prefer mm, none of that imperial nonesense. Cheers

    Ok here's my problem, got the hub off circlip out and the centres of the bearing fell out. Now I'm trying to get the outer skin of the bearing out but cannot get to the actual outer race due to part of the abs ring being in the way. Tried a smaller socket but the thing ain't shifting and...

    Hi guys/girls First up: 1996 Clio Phase 1 1.2 Roughly 2 and a bit years ago, I replaced the nearside wheel bearing. Bosh. Lovely. Last night I stripped it down to replace it again. 2 years is not a very good life for a wheel bearing right!! I noticed last night, flicking through the Haynes...

    Hey guys, First time posting on here, but have had loads of great help already from the site. Basically, I'm trying to change the front wheel bearings on my Master. I've got everything unscrewed I just can't fathom how to remove the actual hub. The suspension spring is pressing down on the...

    Got a strange one on my 2007 lag 2.0 16v . At around 40 mph up to 60ish i'm getting a whine type noise that sounds like a wheel bearing whine . Strange thing is when I jack the car up and test for bearing wear they all seem fine and no play and spin freely . I'm wondering if it could be a tyre...

  18. Wheels & tyres
    Hi guys, My Laguna has recently started making that rumbling noise over 50mph so I'm guessing the bearings need changing. Just out of curiosity has anyone one done this already? Is it a simple(ish) job? By the looks of it, it dosent need pressing which is a plus I guess. Thank you in...

    As per the title, 2001 1.4 scenic, the clutch cable broke on Monday, and I've been told that prior to that, the clutch release bearing had become noisy. So, I fitted a new clutch cable, which was not a fun job, given the routing, and having fitted it, I was less than happy on starting the car...
