    I've just finished fixing our Grand Scenic 1.9dci. Thought someone here might find the story interesting, and perhaps benefit from my experiences. We have a Scene I 1.6, which we bought brand new in 1998. Has been a great car, which we still own, apart from 3 head gasket failures. We decided to...

    Hello, Back on the big snow of Dec. my rear door lock was stuck due to the snow and couldn't be open. I went to a private garage to fix it and also asked him to look on the rear wiper as it was not working. I asked him only to check if it was a fuse or a disconnected wire and not to do...

    ECU no faults. EGR cleaned. MAF changed. I'm the owner of Trafic van with the different moods. Always starts the same, but acts differently. It's easy to start, accelerator pushing me in seat just after small push, sometimes not even when its on the floor. Sometimes when the engine is cold...

    I've just got my 1996 Espace MKII through the MOT but it could have gone very wrong. As usual I left the MOT to the last minute and popped down my local garage in NW10 for the MOT, unfortunately the car failed on the steering rack and ties and was deemed dangerous (this was written on the...

    Fuel tank leak story, Lag II. When filled up full there would be a diesel leak from the fuel pump-sender. Some time in cars life someone had tried to tighten up the locking ring with a screwdriver and hammer (some lugs missing & gouges in sealing ring). Therefore new seal + sealing ring...

    this is the last straw. I have been using the landrover series 2a (1965) for the last few weeks because of the snow up here in scotland. Needless to say the 18 inch tyres on the espace (Espace IV 2004 3.0 DCi Initiale) are no good for snow or ice. i expect everyone has been having the same...

    The suspension story continues after many delays, mostly due to being sent the wrong wishbone bushes and faulty shocks - not impressed :censored: : ( also .. .. I ordered 'superior quality' shocks for better cornering stability, but they sent original ones probably suspecting that I knew...

    Hello, As a Clio Mk 2 owner, I came across this site while looking for info about the bonnet catch problem. I've been interested in what I've read, but I still remain baffled by the Renault and Vosa's thinking. I admit I'm still worried, even though my car is booked in for its 'reassurance...

    Yes I had the problem of the interior lights not going off and through a thread on this forum I was able to super glue that little plastic bit that broke off and solved the problem, well for a short time. It was stated that it was a temporary repair and it did work for a couple of months...
