    Hey folks, Thanks for your help so far- I've recently picked up a 55 plate Modus primary for commutes and longer drives to prevent adding miles to the 'new' car. Drives like a dream (having done nearly 160k!) and been serviced religiously, passed every MOT with flying colours bar a couple of...

The gearbox is an automatic DP0 powered by 2.0 16v. I don't have any trusted mechanics around, and I fix most of...

    Hi, a couple of questions regarding a 2005 Master DCi 100 (2.5) I am trying to get to know better. I was hoping to see more info in the "Driver's handbook" than I've found, but realised that this handbook covers so many differently equipped variants that it cannot be more specific than it is...

    Hi there, New member here, picked up this little car for beer money a few months ago initially thinking of it as a stop gap car but it's been reliable and surprisingly enjoyable to drive and my son turns 17 next Feb so thinking we might keep it and pass on to him to learn in. This being the...

    Hi Just bought a Grand Scenic 2nd hand, and have the following questions. They might seem like a couple of daft questions but they're driving me mad. 1) How to operate the sunroof cover/blinds - There is an electric switch above the drivers head but it only opens the sunroof, not the...

    What grade of oil and how much of it is required for the gearbox of a 2004 dCi Clio? And, is Elf a good brand? I know it's recommended, but I figured that's just for the engine oil And also, unrelated to topic, but how much brake fluid is required for a full brake service? Again, is Elf a good...

  10. Heating & cooling

    Hi folk, I've got a 2004 Megane 1.5 Dci(80) and will be changing the discs and pads on the front. I know how to do it as it's pretty simple. I know when changing things like this, I should take advantage of having access to this area to replace guide bolts and anti rattle springs. I'm not...

    Hello all, I have 2007 Grand Scenic 1.6 for about month now. This is our 3rd Renault. I've noticed that the engine is making ''diesel'' noise. Can this be dephaser pulley? When the engine is cold or starting (cold or hot) there is nothing unusual. When engine reaches temperature and idling I...
