  4. Heating & cooling
    Settings 1, 2 and 3 work. Setting 4 doesn't, most of the time. The heat temperature setting or engine operating temperature doesn't seem to make a difference whether or not blower setting 4 decides to work. Cabin filter, and the area in which the filter is housed, is clean. Any idea? Thank...

    I wasn't sure wether my timing belt was done so I have decided to strip the engine down and put on a new belt and water pump. Good job really because the water pump was leaking slightly and belt was starting to crack. I want to complete my task but having a problem guessing where the 2 lugs on...

    Hi - hoping you can help or point me in the right direction. The heater blower on my girlfriends Clio has suddenly stopped working, it was working fine last week but now changing the setting 1-4 has no effect at all. I don't have any experience with Renaults and finding it difficult to track...

    I've read the manual and it said to set the time by using the buttons on the dashboard below the clock and using clock option in the settings - however this setting isn't there. Also, I haven't got an SD card for my Sat Nav, so it permanently reads 'no maps found!' with the clock in the...

    I have an unhealthy scrapeing noise on application of the brakes on Renault Kangoo 2009 (1.2 petrol). Am ready to take the drums off to have a look at the problem but can't find details on the torque setting for when I tighten up the main nut which secures the brake drum.
