  1. Air conditioning display repair Lag1

  4. Lpg system from lag2 to lag1?

    Hiya, not sure if this is the right section, hopefully it is, any ideas whether an lpg system from a Laguna 2 would fit onto a laguna 1? Both are 3L v6 models, all the wiring is with the kit but I'm a bit worried the connectors would be different? Both engines are L7X if thats any help?

    Wheels & tyres
    Hi Seems a daft question - I fitted top quality budget tyres on front of my estate (ok I know what you are thinking BUt they do hold the road, etc). But I get road noise since fitting, swapped for the rear set but still similar road noise. Not bearings or joints as have tried varying speeds...
  6. lag1 bonnet release hard to open

    the bonnet release on my 2000 Lag1 has got to the point where my hands are not strong enough to grip and pull the lever far enough to pop the bonnet, I have had to make a special tool for the job, I will soon be taking it to my local Renault garage for a quote and suspect the cable will have to...
  7. Faulty drivers seat - Lag1 ph2

    I have have a problem with the drivers seat hight adjustment (non electric). When I operate the lever the seat sinks to the low position a little to quickly and doesn't have enough springiness to lift me back up (and no - I'm not too fat :p ). I can get the seat up if I operate the lever when...

  10. Lag1 rotating door barrels

    Hi All. I have succumbed to the nasty nasty inactive plip - have managed to bypass immobiliser by the wiper stalk / accelerator method (£15 no haggle for immob code!) BUT - the central locking obviously doesn't work - and when I go to the drivers door to use the key - the whole barrel just turns...
