    Hi there. New at this forum. Bought a Laguna 3 2008 2.0 DCI and the reverse lights weren't working. Bought a new light switch online and a friend of mine who had the tools, took the battery off changed the switch and putted back on. Now the car at the battery area somewhere, makes a weird kind...

    How much one can count F4 engine to last, mileage and years - keeping mind oils and filters and power train is kept as expected in good condition? I know that injectors may have air leaks, but that most likely doesn't break the engine.

    I`ve just changed the clutch on the other half`s Megane CC, 5 speed manual, and I was mortified by what drained out of the gear box. :eek: It was oil, and plenty of it, but it was black as the ace of spades with a very thin more viscous layer on the surface, which shivered in the breeze. The...
