Now I find that I can not unlock the latch to enable me to close the tailgate as...

    Is there a membership option for this forum? When I had my Nova, I was a member on the PNG forum, and you get a couple stickers, a membership card, as well as a discount with certain partners of the forum. Is there such a thing for this forum?

  4. Wheels & tyres
    I've got a 2015 Clio and i've had my fair share of issues with the TPMS. At first I had the check tyre pressure sensor issue. But it didn't tell me which one. After inflating and deflating the tyres a few times that problem, went away. A week later a new problem arose. Adjust tyre pressure...

    They're at it again - keeping themselves warm under my car's bonnet and eating away the battery sleeve thingy. This happened on my Alfa a few years ago - found a nest in fact, made from a plastic bag and whatever material they could chew off from the firewall covering. Not sure what I can do...

    Ok, Humour me here!! I have had a Laguna before, long time ago though, but I seem to recall when you pulled the window buttons up, the windows went up. My rear windows work like that, ie, pull button up, up goes the window, push it down, window goes down. My passenger front doesn't work at...

  11. Exhausts
    So I was wondering what if I bought a sports exhaust for my 2003 Clio 1.5dci. From the beginning I invested a lot in it (stupid I know, but what can I say.. its a passion :D) so I might as well just buy an exhaust for it. When its parked everybody assumes its 2.0 Clio sport or at least some with...
