    Hello, I have a 2015 Clio with around 10,800 miles. I've booked it in for a service at the dealer for the 30th September and by then it would have close to 11,500 to 12k miles. They had advised me that the 1st service only consists of a cabin filter change!! and that they will only look at the...

    Hey everyone, I am the new to this forum and am in process of buying a renault megane cc tomorrow. Unfortunately after doing research on this forum, it seems the cambelt should have been changed by now. Therefore thinking its properly best to get it done next week if possible, I have got a...
  4. Tools & equipment
    I took my car to my local garage recently for diagnostics. They charged me £30 - they claim the £30 part covers the expensive cost of the diagnostic equipment they use - seems fair enough. People on here talk about all kinds of different diagnostics setups ranging in price. From what i've been...
  5. Wheels & tyres
    I drive (well, 'operate') a 2002 Megane Coupe 'Privilege'. Ahem. My Meganitis has been flaring up badly recently. Not least due to a problem I paid £380 to have 'fixed' but which remains. The problem: After a drive of at least 40 minutes when the car is nice and warmed up, any slight bump...

  8. Engines
    OK, facing up to the idea that my turbo needs some attention and it'll probably cost me time and money. However I wasn't quite expecting the quote I got for the work from the first, fairly convenient place I tried (I'd have to get a bus home and then back, but only about 40 minutes including...

    I've just got my 1996 Espace MKII through the MOT but it could have gone very wrong. As usual I left the MOT to the last minute and popped down my local garage in NW10 for the MOT, unfortunately the car failed on the steering rack and ties and was deemed dangerous (this was written on the...

    Just wondering if anyone has any advise on the following. A while ago my megane 1.9dti had a few faults on its computer and diagnostics gave codes for glow plugs and air mass sensor. As the car was running perfectly well, i was told to ignore the warning on the computer (check injection) and...

    Renaults are not the only makers that don't know how to repair cars. My son took his Rav 4 into the dealers to find out why a warning light had lit up on the dash, the dealers said it was to do with the emmisions and either needed a new Cat, £1500.00 or an ECU update, £89.00 plus vat and...

Please post dealer recommendations. If you can include the following information I'll collate the data and...
