    Hi all I don't know if anyone can help me out here, but the positive battery connection on my 2004 1.5 DCI Kangoo has been well sort of butchered. All the connectors are all screwed to a standard battery terminal. Everything seems to work ok but it looks a bit iffy to say the least. I would try...

    I need to access the positive feed to the reversing light to get power for a rearview camera. What is the trick to removing panels etc, to get at the lamp or the wiring at a point closest to the top centre of the hatch opening?

    After spending hundreds of pounds on the permanent live feed problem afflicting my 2003 Mk 2, 1.2, 16V with 80k on the clock, it has become beyond economic repair so it's gone to the breakers! My first and last Renault. Thank you to all those that tried to help me.

    Hey guys, yeah now the HG seems ok I can turn my attention to some other niggles I want to fix. When I remove the oil filler there is quite a lot of pressure blowing out of the engine, isn't it normally ment to be a negative or vacuum at the oil filler? Trouble is I know little about a turbo...

    I have a 2003 Laguna 1.9 DCI and have noticed that the positive battery lead has been shortened compared to other models the same as mine. I have noticed on the others that just away from the positive terminal is a light coloured rectangular unit. I don't know what it is for or what it does...

    The engine keeps running after I remove the ignition key on my 03 1.2 16V Expression!! I've discovered by accident that instead of stalling the engine I can stop it by pressing the clutch and foot brake simultaniously!! However, that still leaves the dash lights on. The only way I can turn them...

    Good day all, I'm looking for a cheap 4x4 and being the owner of an Espace and Clio I thought about a RX4. However, having looked on the forum and seen such comments as exploding gearboxes, horrendous mpg figures failing drive shafts I think I might look elsewhere. Is this a true reflection...

    Hi all I have some DRLs to fit to my Clio but I am unsure which wire is the positive wire (the driver side has a brown and grey wire going into the sidelight and the passenger side has a white and brow wire) seen as they both have brown wires am I right to presume this is the positive one ?
