  1. 2011 Megane Brakes failing

    Brakes/Hubs
    I have had a developing problem with my brakes for the last couple of weeks, they have basically became less and less effective to the point where they barely work at all. The pedal goes right to the floor and it comes to a gradual stop, if I pump the pedal then it will stop a bit better after 4...
  2. Why do window Espace winders keep failing

    Interiors
    I have now replaced every window winder on my Espace in the past 3 years and since then two have failed again! I live in dread of using the windows as I know that dread clunk sound as the cable gives way and the window drops or jams in the window trim. At over £250 a time this is a very...

  4. Renault Clio II Speedo intermittently failing.

    Electronics
    I have recently bought a 2001 Clio mk2 1.4 16v. The car runs great and is working perfectly except that when driving the speedometer goes from an accurate 40mph to below 0mph.

    Engines

  9. Dashboard failing

    Electronics
    The dashboard in the car is sometimes blinking on and off, sometimes it goes completely dark, sometimes it just fades. It does this at 60mph and it does it while you're sitting in traffic. Figures like the fuel range go crazy and obviously can't be trusted. The rest of the car seems to work...
