  2. Heating & cooling
    Been told by the garage the condenser has a small leak (losing air con over a month+). How easy would it be to DIY a replacement? I have been quoted £450 by the garage, car is not worth that! If I DIY - do I strictly need to change the dryer as well?

How difficult would it be for me to fit this...

    Hi, bought this used car last year, but it wasn't until yesterday that I've tried to use the CD player, which... doesn't work. Well, it's too late to complain now... It makes some weird noises, returns an error, and the eject won't work so the CD doesn't come out. I saw some used radios on ebay...

    Above is the source of a fuel leak on my 2001 diesel clio - it,s the pipe with the cladding to be precise. Is this the sort of thing that could be repaired easily - easily as replacing the fuel filter for example - or is it a job for a pro? All opinions on the matter greatly appreciated.

    I'm a Renault virgin, having bought a Laguna phase 2 just 3 weeks ago. I love the car already but there are a couple of little items that need my attention. I'm no mechanic and I feel a bit silly asking: 1) The 2 vents above the centre console have the top "blade" missing. I found the blades in...
