retrofitting

  1. Electronics
    Hi All! I have a Late 06 Clio 1.4 Dynamique and would like to add cruise control. I have the pedal switches already but don't seem to have the white connector behind the panel where the Speed limited / cruise switch would live. I have taken the dashboard apart in an attempt to locate the...

    Is there any information surrounding the retrofitting of navigation systems from the TomTom models (the R-Link capable ones) to lesser models such as the Dynamique? I'm under the impression that replacing the head unit, adding the switch module to centre console and fitting the screen &...

    I have been given a boot with a tail gate for my Scenic and have been looking at retrofitting it. I have taken apart both boots and found they have slightly different wiring looms which I am guessing is due to there being two switches/buttons on the donated boot and only one on the existing. My...

    Has anyone retrofitted a Tyre Pressure Monitor System to a Lag III. Is it just a case of getting the tyre valves replaced and the on board computer reprogrammed?

    Ok, so having seen the thread regarding retrofitting CC to a Megane 2 HERE I decided to embark on this for my recently acquired Scenic II.. However, judging by the fact that I do not appear to have the wiring in the same place as the Megane for the CC on/off switch, as it's on the side of the...

    just to let you guys know it is possible to do, i just done it on ine and it works, all you need is 1) a steering wheel with the cruise switches easier to get an ititale model 2) a clock spring with 4 plugs not 3 this is essential for it to work 3) the cruise switch thats all thats...

    As I have a 2007 Megane Extreme, it doesn't come with front fogs. I haven't had the blanking plates off yet but I assume the wiring will be present? If the wiring is there is it only a matter of connecting the lamps and installing a new indicator/light stalk with the option for the front fogs...

For the ESP From what I can see, I would only really need to pay out...

    Thought that this article might be of interest to some forum members - the poster makes a very neat job of it and it doesn't look like too much work... Edit: And this thread, linked to from the above article is a useful discussion of the compatibility of various Alpine and Pioneer stereos with...

    Dear All, Can someone give me some advice? I have a 2003 Kangoo van. When I purhcased the van it had no radio so I bought one from Ebay along with a dash LCD unit (scrappy). I've removed the top dash panel expecting to find the plugs needed to connect the display panel but nothing seems to...

    I've heard about people successfully managing to retro-fit cruise control to their cars and was wondering whether anybody has accomplished anything similar with ESP? AFIK, it makes use of the ABS sensors and so I thought it might be one of those features that is hidden in cars that don't specify...

    Had a spare hour at work today so I made up a loom for the self levelling sensors, and also gave them an overhaul and clean. Headlamps arrived when i got in, complete with ballasts and bulbs which look almost new as they are still at about 4300K. Thought I'd fire them up and show some pics, this...

    My conventional wiper blades are nearing the end of their useful lives, and with Winter fast approaching - the time has come. I have been rather intrigued by these 'flat' wiper blades, which apparently present an even pressure to the windscreen, and are much more efficient. Has anyone got...

    Hi there, I was considering doing this to my LagII Dynamique. As far as im aware i will need a new mirror switch, 2 mirrors. Is the wiring already there or will I need to fabricate a new loom up? Andy

    Retrofitting the voice synth to a post 52 plate vehicle can be done. All that is needed is a little soldering skills and a lot of patience. To begin with you will need to locate a voice computer, switch and associated connectors and possibly a speaker if you don’t already have one fitted...

    Hi, My dad has a 1.6 Scenic (04 plate), I think cruise control was available as an option on the higher spec versions but does anyone know if it is possible to get it added now or what’s involved? Sorry I don’t know the version of the car, but I could find out if it made a difference. Thanks...

    Picked my 1.9 DCi Authentique up yesterday - lovely! Just read the manual and it describes two different key cards. One, like I have, with two buttons for "manual" unlocking. The other apears to be the "automatic" version which unlocks without the need to take the card out of your pocket. Can...
