    Does anyone know of an issue where a back brake caliper keeps sticking on. I have had this happen at least 3 or 4 times since I bought the van about 4 years ago. I only find out when I have it serviced or MOTD or when the pads wear down. Anyone heard of this before? If anyone could offer some...

    Vehicle arrived at my place after dealer wanted to replace all turbo plumbing at exorbitant cost as the correct and only solution. So lots of sucking and blowing on all plumbing after the obligatory cleaning of the filthy EGR valve (that improved matters a lot) still no closer to reason for...

    Does a Megane Mk2 1.6L petrol 2006 model thermostat housing have oil galleries too? I'm aware the Megane Mk3 has a plastic thermostat housing which has both oil and water galleries and oil can get into the coolant if the seal fails or the plastic warps, etc,,,, is it the same for the Megane Mk2...

    After having the car from new, 6 months later the alarm randomly went off and would not stop. Ended up driving it to the Dealership during which time it stopped (after 30 mins) when we got there the fault seemed to be intermittent, eventually after 3 weeks we were informed a new alarm had been...

    Hi all, It's been a while since I posted here, but I'm running out of straws to clutch at so grateful for even a small amount of advice! I now live in Germany, and my wife has a 2009 Koleos with a 2.5 petrol engine which was never sold in the UK. It has failed its TüV (Germany's MOT) on a...

    Hi, How do I go about changing the rear pads on a Renault Master and freeing up/adjusting the hand brake? Can it be done without any specialist tools? I'm just trying to save my brother a few quid on garage bills and haven't seen this type of caliper/handbrake before. Thanks.

    Hi all, I have a Renault Grand Scenic, 2009 model 1.5 litre diesel. The rear fog light does not work, I have removed and tested the light bulb and the light bulb socket, both work. There is no voltage reaching the light bulb, confirmed using a multimeter. Looking in the user manual it...

    I have the error codes (P0335, P0340, PP0010, P0340) on my 2006 Clio Mk3 Auto and have been advised to change the crankshaft sensor which apparently can be changed easily (I have been advised) and will remove the codes. Can someone advise me with the exact location of a Crankshaft Sensor under...

    Hi. I've just bought a 2010 'Laguna INIT T-T DCI FAP A' Estate with no satnav instructions and no DVD. After looking at numerous posts I realise I don't even know what type of satnav system I've got. I'd like to know what type of satnav it is, if I can get a satnav "handbook", and more...

    Hi all, just a quick question.Is replacing front brake pads on 2014 trafic straight forward as other cars or is it a dealer only job? Have just been quoted a massive cost by the dealer that caused me to nearly swallow my tongue. Thanks in advance.
