    Hey Everyone, My 2004 Renault Clio 1.2 16v has (After a quick Dual carriageway drive)started to make a loud knocking noise. The noise comes from the Drivers side front, It's not that noticeable until you rev or when changing gear (Up or Down). I have also noticed the coolant level has...

    Hi all, I have some difficulty finding the knock sensor on my 2012 Laguna 1.5dCi - K9K846 engine. According to threads in these forums, drawings on the net and asking Renault etc it should be located just below the fuel rail - but all I see there is an empty hole with threads. I also do not see...

So i replaced the Sensor and the connector and the issue still persists. I replaced the TDC sensor and plug just in case. Still having...

    Hi, Last year My daughter's Megane 1.5Dci 106BHp had an engine fault, which basically was a bottom end knocking noise ( Big End we think ). We couldn't get a good secondhand engine, so we sold the car for Spares/Repair. What I did find was that this seemed to be a common problem with the...

    Thought I would share - had a knock in the drivers side front suspension since I bought the van 2000 miles ago - passed French MOT no problem but bugged me - changed top mount as bearing was smashed, changed inner and outer track rods as both had play. To do the strut mount had to cut the drop...
