    Dear experts the dealer said the transmission fluid of edc 6 is life time. The engineer at getrage he said is it recommended to change it every 60k. Which one should I believe. the dealer said orginal part of transmission fluid from Renault not exist. So means it is unchangeable? please advise?

    Afternoo The car went in for it's 4th service today which supposedly included a brake fluid change. The fluid was fairly clean anyway, so its hard to tell from the resevoir whether they actually changed the fluid. But the bleed nipples look untouched, photo attached. Any thoughts?

    If I pull the MAP sensor out of the upper inlet manifold, I can see a tiny puddle of liquid (which resembles oil) if I shine a light into the port in which the sensor has been pulled from. Is this normal? Thank you. Megane III - K4M 848 - 1.6 Petrol.
