    Hi everyone- I recently had someone roll into the back of my 2019 Clio Iconic and left a few small marks on the black plastic near the licence plate. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get these marks fixed without taking it to Renault and them charging me a bomb?

    Hi Having just bought this van a few days ago, I've been 'getting to know it'. One of the issues I found - in time, I guess - is that the air cleaner box was sitting too low on the engine, with the result that it has been rubbing on the connections to one of the injectors (see photo, red...

I am a mechanic and the third client has come in with this problem. The crankshaft shields and connecting rod are worn out, always happening on...

    One of the headlights on my Scenic has started to delaminate due to UV damage. Before I get to work with the buffing wheel and toothpaste can anyone suggest how I might remove the top layer (a thin plastic layer) which, as you can see from the photo, is peeling off the lens which I assume is...

    Hello, So recently I've managed to drive in to a low down carpark bollard, the damage isn't too major but it has done some damage, it's in the front right wheel arch area, I believe it's called the right wing panel? I've attached some photos of the Damage, I'm just wondering what I can do to go...

    So driving home the other night my scenic 2 1.9 DCI (54) had a caliper retaining bolt failure. Alloys ripped inside, caliper snapped, ABS sender in half - it wasn't pretty. So recon parts ordered and fitted, fluid changed brakes bled. Had a whiting noise and realised no spring on recon...

    Hi there- my 2001 Renault Master campervan 2.2dci had a fuel injection problem which I found out was due to a leaking injector. The injector was replaced one month ago but straight after the injector was replaced, lots of smoke was appearing from the exhaust. At the time I thought it was fuel...

    Just pulled out the EGR from a 2002 Scenic 1.9dCi. The end disc is gone - apparently a commonplace thing. Question is... will it go anywhere dangerous (inlet manifold say) or will it just meander off down the exhaust pipe?

    Recently took my (newly bought) second hand Kangoo 2007 for a service. I knew when I bought it that it had a couple of category C claims on it, so wasn't too surprised when I was told that the front driver side camber angle was out due to possible damage to the hub carrier. At the same time as...

    I am considering buying a laguna2 1.9 dci that suffered a runaway engine and now has no compression. I am wondering if anyone can tell me what is typically found in this case. Is there a good chance that it just bent the valves or do they often put holes in the pistons? I will try turning it...
