    Have bought OEM Renault alloys to replace the steel wheels. Tyres are all same size. Local garage says I must get the OEM wheel bolts with washers. Do I really? Where can I get them online if so? Thanks.

    Not sure if this is the correct forum but I have been having trouble with some nuts that I can't reach.

    My bumper is hanging loose, the plastic has come away from the bolt holes on each side and the bolts are just spinning held in by clips or spire nuts or whatever they are? Is this fixable? Drill new holes etc? Completely lost, spent all day trying to get the nuts out, and I know when I do new...

    Hello, I'm new to the Renault world as I just purchased a 2014 Trafic Sport a couple months ago. The driver's seatbelt alarm has been going off now for the last week or two, while I'm wearing my seatbelt and I can't figure out what to do. I can't see any obstructions anywhere, and the clip isn't...

    Hi all, I'm after shearing off two front wheel bolts on my 2000 kangoo. (My own fault for overtightening with a massive tire iron) I've had no luck trying to drill out the bolts, so my current plan is to wait for it to stop raining, take off the brake rotor and try to get a vise grips on the...

    Hi. my Names Paul Just wanted to know as I am reasonably new here, if I am the only Renault nut around who buys scrapped Renaults, then restores, and then upgrades his Renaults, for own use.

  14. Brakes/Hubs
    Hopefully somebody knows the answer on this when servicing or changing the brake shoes on a Kangoo van (mine is 2004 model but I think it applies to some Clios) You need to remove the hub nut. I have been led to believe that you can only use them once. If so and I can see the logic in this would...
