    My key card is currently knackered, it will lock the doors, deadlock the doors & arm the alarm and it will also open the boot but it will not unlock the doors no matter how many times you press it! Whats more, I can't get in through the passenger door as its parked next to a wall. I can get to...

    Hi all Put the car (lag 2 V6)into a dealer because it was convenient - the car has a major engine wobble - turned out cylinder 6 had a miss-fire. Dealer tells me they swapped around the coils and the M.S was still there so it must be the valves/pistons - probably a write off then. Engine has...

    After sporadic non starting my local garage has come to the conclusion the ecu's knackered. They attempted to read the diagnostics but could get no response from the ecu. pulling my hair out now as a replacement ecu is more than the cars worth. Is it worth sending it off for repair or am i...

    OK, as may be gathered from my comments on other threads, my gearbox has gone kabang. Well, not quite - the 2nd gear synchro has completely self destructed after some months of being borderline and fifteen minutes of madness (and possibly a misadjusted/worn out clutch). It'll go in, with much...

    I recently bought a megane 2001 1.9 dci that had done 77000 miles and i wasn't sure whether the cam belt had been changed so i took the pluge and had the cam belt kit changed and the auxiliary belt done at the same time. After having the work done i noticed the auxiliary belt had started to fray...

    :mad:I've spent the last few days replacing the turbo and intercooler on my Lag 2 1.9 dci. Everything is back together again BUT the so-called professional mechanic who fitted the last one 5k miles ago has b*ggered up the threads for the oil feed pipe where it goes into the block. It's a new...

    Hi, I have a Clio 1.8 16v. The immobiliser functions and indicators flash but no sound. Where is the siren located? Where can I buy a replacement? There are plenty on ebay but dont know the spec. Thanks. Mark.
