The car is unlocked Cannot find emergency release in boot on floor or side panel (after removing trim) Does anyone know the location of this or a probable cause of failure if not the solenoid.

    Hello all, I'm new here and of course have a problem and I am unsure of what category I should be posting in. So I'm sorry if this is the wrong place. My problem is my fuel flap, I got the car last week and fuelled up no problems. Yesterday I went to fill up again and it appears to be locked...

    Hi! Anyone any idea how to replace the fuel cap/flap for a Renault Clio Estate IV? When I remove 3 screws at the flap, there is still a squared part holding it in the car, where the lock meganism goes through when closing the locks. I looked from the trunk but wasn't able to find how to remove...

    Hi, I was about to replace my blower flap actuator as it has the usual broken gear tooth. However now I find that there is the same unit available printed on with 13 V and 14 V instead the one I have with 11 V. Does anybody know more about this? They all have the MO30 designator on. What does...

    Hi All! Sorry if this is in the wrong section, tried to post in the Megane forum, but it stated I had to post in the general first. This topic is an on going issue which I've had enough of and sent the car to a dealership in Tamworth to find out what's up. My air con blows cold on the driver...

    Hi Just got that dash out for fixing blower issue. Just a week after we bought the car the recirculation valve started hitting the end stops (I presume). I saw similar threats for the megan here but this is likely different here, I think there are two ways this thing works, there should be end...

    My Laguna III fuel flap won't stay closed. It sometimes jams into position... I tried a bit of WD40 but it didn't seem to do much. Its hard to work out exactly how the flap stays closed. There is a little arm to the right that lifts up and down, to the bottom right, bt its not clear to me how...

    Just bought a 2008 grand Espace Initiale. The large flaps on the back of most of the seats are hanging down limply. They seem to be supported on two weak elastics that are well past their best; I've tried a new stronger bit of elastic but it still tends to droop. Does the flap need to open...

The cover fell off and there are four tiny bits of plastic on the actual fuel flap, that have snapped. So now i can't put the body-coloured cover back on. Renault have told me i need a whole...

    Hi My fuel flap solenoid has stopped working on my grand scenic iii. Before I order a new solenoid I was going to check the fuse on the off chance that is was just a blown fuse and not the solenoid. Problem is...I can't figure out where the fuel flap solenoid fuse is located!! Can anyone point...

    The fuel filler cap on my 08 plate Laguna III would not open. but I was able to remove the trim cover and get the filler cap flap open at the petrol station by manipulating the internal latching pin inside the fuel filler cap. It looks like the moveable latch inside the flap is broken. It is...

    I have just found that I can't refuel because the filler flap won't open. The rest of the central locking system seems to work as intended. The garage says it will be the actuator, but I can't get it to them till Thursday because I have to use the car tomorrow (Wednesday). Is there a separate...

I have had a 2nd hand compressor fitted to the air cnditioning system but it is still not cooling the air in the car. When switched on, the fan produces fresh air to the...
