  2. Interiors
    I picked up my new to me espace iv yesterday & ive been playing with the seating, I have come to the conclusion a couple of the seats arent very well thought out. Obviously the 5 rear seats are identical, but with the fold/recline lever being on the left side of the seat it makes it difficult...
  3. Bodywork
    Dreadful design for spare heel housing release on Renault Clios 2006 models.
  4. Bodywork
    I suggest Espace 3 owners go take a look at their rear handbrake cables, to investigate if preventative maintenance work is required: This is a carry-over from a thread where I thought at first the squeaking I was suffering was a suspension issue...
  5. Engines
    I am wondering if anyone else thinks there is an inherent design fault in the 2.2dci engine which is making Espaces fail before their time - and hence arguably deficient under the sale of goods act? I have spent many hours poring over this site and have found the following users who have...
  6. Wheels & tyres
    I'm trying to identify the name of the design of alloy wheels on my 2005 Kangoo Expression. They are the standard ones (see attached), which I think were also fitted to Meganes from 2001-2003ish. I need to buy a replacement for one which is badly kerbed and retain the kerbed one as a spare (I...
  7. Cars & motoring
    Anyone find that the sun visor on the Lag II is useless? If I lower it to block the glare of the sun it also blocks my view of the road, all I can see is the end of the bonnet, no matter how I try I cannot push it forward towards the screen, anyone else find they have this problem? :crazy:
  8. Computer Club
    Free Website Builders? Anyone know of any decent websites where I can build and host my own site for free? I'm after something that is easy to use as I'm not the most techie bloke when it comes to computing :o
  9. Heating & cooling
    I would suggest anyone with a 3.0dCi Espace checks the routing of the coolant pipe from the front of the resevoir which goes back to the rear of the engine for chaffing. I had a water leak recently & traced it back to a worn section caused by the pipe rubbing against a steel engine plate. Its...
  10. Interiors
    Has any one else issues with the way the Laguna heated seats work in the later models. With mine, they come on for about 3 minutes and then go to a "regulated" mode. But I cannot feel any heat coming out. At 5:30 am on a winter morning, I don't feel I am getting any value out of them. The car...

    PHOTOS I like it, and you:)
  12. Exhausts
    I have a 2003 RX 4, the catalytic converter pipe snapped at the weld just after I purchased it in April this year (2006). This was replaced under warrenty. The same weld has gone again, this time when on holiday in the middle of France! (Had to wait 24 hours for a replacement as its a Renault)...
  13. Cars & motoring
    For anyone interested, information at the following link about the Avantime concept when it first showed up. I don't know who Emrich is/are but they obviously got duff gen about what elements of the concept would or would not make it to production ( e.g. colour schemes, rear window shape...
  14. Bodywork
    BBC Watchdog report :: Faulty Renault Clio bonnet catches Anyone heard of any problems with the bonnet catch on Clios? My bonnet opened while I was driving along at 60 mph and caused £2,500 worth of damage even though the interior bonnet catch had not been pulled. All information gratefully...
