  1. Heating & cooling
    Hi. The heater blower on my mk3 Grande Scenic is working fine, but it is quite noisy and squeaky. I've tried everything to get at it, including removing glove box, steering column and housing, but cant get any further. Does anyone have any ideas how to get to it please?

    Kangoo van 1.5dci..... My new van has a noisy fuel tank pump/sender, never noticed any noise on any previous dci Renault I've had, is it fubar'd or could it be something else, it's on all the time with ign on, I know it's a pig of a job to get the sealing ring back on I've done one before before.

    After the winter weather, I've noticed that my wiper blades have become squeaky as they reach the upright position. The blades where under a month old (Bosch AeroTwin). Never the less I got replacements just to rule out the blades. Do I need to slightly bend the wiper arms with pliers to change...

    Hi guys I have had a quick look for a similar problem without success. Long story short I changed 2 front tyres today and while up on jacks the fitter noticed that the steering lock is in-operative. He proceeded to push/pull the wheels back and forth to the tune of a horrendous ratchety sound...

    My son has a 61 reg Clio 1.2. It's all of a sudden started making a noise which after some investigation turns out to be the alternator pulley. After searching online I can find pulleys for most models apart from his. I've spoke to our local dealer who said it needs a full new alternator. The...

    Hi guys Even though the car is a Nissan, the engine is a Renault F9Q, so I'd like to ask in the renault forum about my concern after replacing the turbo. The car seems to run fine after the replacement, but there is some smoke coming from the turbo and there is a lot of sound. I'm not sure if...

    Hello, For the second time in 5 years, the ventilator bearing has failed! It is making a rattly noise, louder at low speeds and less at full spin. The control and fan works perfectly but the rattle noise is infuriating, especially with summer on the way. The last time I had the ventilator...

    Good evening my fellow renault owners. I have a 2005 Renault Laguna estate, 6 speed manual with 105000 on the clock. I have developed a whine from the nearside. I've replaced the front and rear brakes, the rear bearings and today the off side drive shaft. When I disconnected the brakes on the...

    Hi, I have a 2010 Renault Master, it only has 37k on the clock and has given me very few problems. One niggling problem that has cropped up is that the interior fan has been making a 'whirring' noise as though something has got trapped and is making contact with the blades. I have removed the...

    Whenever I switch on my aircon in my 2003 Megane Mk2, I get a subtle whirring noise which appears to rise and fall with the revs of the engine. I'm guessing this is likely to be bearings failing in the compressor. Can anyone concur or suggest an alternative problem? Thanks Bob

    I recently bought a 2002 Clio Authentique at the beginning of July. It had just passed it's MOT and had only 49k on the clock.

    I have a disabled converted master and the n/s loading door makes an aggravating creaking/ cracking noise whilst driving. I have greased the runners but with little effect and all fixings are tight. Not a major fault but so annoying on a long journey...Any ideas please.
