    I have owned my 2011 Renault Trafic from new. In August 2017 I had three of the injectors replaced after originally complaining to Renault UK about them being heavily corroded due to the much documented scuttle panel seal failing. The dealer and Renault UK shared the cost of the repair and I...

    I've got a scenic mk 2 1.9dci from early 2003. The other day the transmission dropped out on the passenger side. Snapped the drive shaft too. On inspection two of the three mounting bolts had vanished and the third was only kept in by the underside of the engine mounting plate. It had worked...

I thought I would spend a few euros more on the new head bolts so I bought Elring bolts because I have always thought their products were of superior quality.

    Hello forum, yesterday I was in one generic oil change shop as where I live can't be on the street to change the oil and they were cheap. The man said that they couldn't remove the undertray to access the oil sump. I have tried to ask which type of bolts are they but he didn't know how to...
