    Please can someone help me identify the names of these parts (circled in RED, not the green circles) so I can buy some rust-free replacements. As well as the bolts that are needed. Numbered 4 & 5 in the clearer schematic. Or if you have a link to the parts, that would be amazing! UK...

    I've found a few breaks in the protective coating on my rear suspension springs. These areas have rust. Is it worth taking a wire brush with rust remover to clean up the affected areas, followed by some underbody seal to be applied onto the fresh metal? Thank you. MEGANE III Petrol hatch 1.6...

    I thought when I by Espace 3 I would not have any rust problems. I was wrong :crying2:. Lower motor support welding rusts. In my country is not allowed to re-weld. So it must be swapped, which really is not cheap. But it is only way to keep car passed the control. So clean up your motor...

    The clio is just over 2 years old, and the black gloss part of the rear bumper is flaking. I have just spoken to the Renault dealer where we purchased from (nearly new) and they have told us we need to contact St Helens as they have a body shop. I have just spoken to them, and they said that...

    I've always wondered why Renault vehicles are so immune to rust including underneath, there are no other makes of vehicle on the market with bodywork so long lasting :smile2: My 52 plate Clio with 50K which sits outdoors in all weather is solid and spotless throughout, zero rust even...

    I hope it's not as I have been there before, I hope it's not a rusted through wheel rim but I appear to have a slow leak in one of my tyres, I pump up to 36 psi and over the space of a couple of days the tyre rapidly loses pressure to sit at about 22 psi where the air leak then slows down to...

    Given I tend to keep my vehicles rather a long time, only really changing them when I want something that does something different, I am looking to rust proof the underside of my recently acquired 2002 Kangoo of which I know from the MOT history has an issue with underside corrosion of...

    Basically as the title says. Most of us own a car with age and you can bet your bottom dollar most of them suffer from rust. As most of us car enthusiast will know at some point the rust needs to be dealt with by a good brush off with a wire brush and a nice paint. so what product do you use...

    Mégane 1 rear jacking point rust Hello, I've just been taking a look (hard poke) at the Mégane and made the following holes, I guess these will be an MOT fail? Fortunately it's not till April so I've got loads of time to find a replacement, I think it's time to move on rather than get it...

    I wondered if any of you guys had come across bubbling paintwork.They suddenly appeared on my 1995 Clio mk2 bonnet.I sanded the head off one and it was full of water and I applied some kurust (top and underneath) but it still comes back. What would be the correct way to approach the job.I've...

    We have just purchased our first Renault Kangoo which we love and find very practical. However yesterday after looking around the body work I noticed that the two rear sliding door window rubbers were bulging out in places as though they were not put in properly. I looked closer to see little...

    Hi - so my offside lower sills are rusted through, one where it meets the wheel arch, the other a little further from the wheel arch.... In fact at both front and rear offside 'jack points'. The thinner steel is completely rusted through where it meets the stronger, thicker 'spine' of metal that...

    When changing the oil last week I was amazed to see quite serious rust on the sump of my daughter's 07 1.2 16v Clio. Is this a common problem?? Never happens with a Morris Minor sump... Is it possible to weld it up? I guess new sump pans are expensive............

    Hi guys, Corrosion is a hideous thing, but it's not something i'd expect to have to deal with on a 2002 car? My aunt's (previously mine) Vel Satis appears to have started bubbling just below the rear door handle. It's still under anti-corrosion warranty so we'll see what Renault have to say...

    Hi, I took my rear number plate off the other day, to polish behind it, and notice the paint was starting to bubble around where the screws go into the metal. Also some dots of rust started to appear where seems like the number plate has been rubbing against the metal work. I have now placed...

    hiya, I spotted some rust bubbles behind my umber plate on my 51 plate Clio. Also taken the side trims off, and notice 1 small rust bubble there. Does my 12 Year paint warranty cover this, although my car has not been serviced by a garage for some time now? Secondly I have noticed the...

    Hi, I bought the wife a new 1.6 Oasis Scenic in late 2006, it is barely 4 years old with 35k on the clock. I was checking the rear brakes yesterday to see if need replacing, theres 3 too 4 mm left and I have just done front ones, when I noticed some small corrosion rust bubbles are now...
