    Hi everyone, We have a 2008 Renault Grand Scenic 1.9 Dinamique and it all works unbelievably well so far. There's only one small nuisance: blower is strong and heats well except for when I turn the dial to the bottom vents (for the feet). Compared to all other positions it's very very weak...

    Hello I have a scenic 1. It's a 1997, 1.6 8v. I have more or less restored it apart from one thing which is quite annoying. When I start the cars the dash is fine but after a short drive when it is warmed up when the revs go below 1.5k revs the oil light flashes and the lower the revs the...

    Hi, I own a '99 Clio with the simple dials. Got a rev counter, but no oil check, instead there's the miles counter and a clock. On the back there are 4 connectors.

    Hi all, The button in the middle of the dial doesn't seem to do anything other than when I press it, the rear sunroof blind makes a clicking noise. I wondered if it should be an electrically operated blind, and if so how can I fix it, or at least get at it to inspect? Cheers =)

    Is it legal to change your own Speed dials colour, and light bulbs? Someone told me that it is ilegal as you can change the mileage, however mine is digital mileage so i would not be able to do this. Please advise. Many thanks. Regards Phil

    Hi, Someone recently changed my dials on my Mk3 Clio and I think all the needs have been replaced wrong as the Revs needle is way to low. I also think the speed is showing incorrect aswell. Is there a way I can fix this or does it need to be taken to a garage? Cheers.
