    Hi I have a renault scenic dynamic 07 plate. I went to change the first spark plug and stupidly put the wrong socket into the hole and it's gone down over the spark plug and now i cant get it out. I tried a magnet but it feels like it just touches the top of the spark plug .... I'm in desperate...

    Back in September I've bought a 2006 Scenic II 2.0 (manual, petrol), and due to work getting in the way I haven't had time to do much on it. Driving it over the past few months I've noticed a few problems. The most worrying being that on a cold morning, it rattled/clanked for a minute or so...

    Hi, new to the forum so forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place. My 5 doesn't seem to have a spark and I'm pretty sure it's down to the 4 pin ignition module (silver box to the side of the coil) the part numbers are: gCartier 02346 7700739404. Does anybody have any idea where I'd find...

    Was checking the spark plugs the other day on a 2002 8v 1.2 clio 2 we just bought number 1 (I say number 1 , its up the clutch end - seems the french number their cylinders as 1-4 with cyl 1 starting from clutch end whereas others start no.1 at the cambelt end) anyway the spark plug sheared off...

    Hi, Does anyone know where I can get a spark plug socket for my 08 Clio? All the ones I’ve tried don’t fit down the metal tubes or are 12 sided so won’t grab the spark plug or aren’t deep enough. Have got this but doesn’t fit: Laser Magnetic Spark Plug Socket 14... Can’t even take it the...

    I have a very light dusting of '***********' on one spark plug, installed above cylinder 3. The other plugs don't have this issue. I replaced all 4 plugs for good measure. The original plugs were marked 'Renault' and have probably done the full 48k mileage. The new plug installed above cylinder...

    Oil is leaking into one spark plug well and the one next to it is black. I know this is serious but is it possible to repair and is it a big, expensive job? There's no smoke coming from the exhaust.

Last year Renault realised that one of their proprietary spark plugs was cactus...it died within 6 months of them fitting it and within a fortnight of it's 280k service. They replaced...
