    Hey there, I'm having some problems with my van and hoping someone here can help me out. I was going towards a national speed limit road and started accelerating to get up to 60mph when at around 45-50mph my acceleration just felt like it gave way. All of a sudden I couldn't get above 20-25mph...
  2. Brakes/Hubs
    Hi all, I've had the abs and serv light on for some time now, but very occasionally it will go out when driving along for a few minutes. Braking has been fine with no locking up. I eventually decided to sort it before the MOT so I checked all the wheel sensors and they were okay. I got the...

    Hi guys if anyone could help please let me know, I've acquired the van and the gearbox I believe may be shagged, started with crunching into second when down shifting, no 5th gear, sometimes had to fight it to get it out of reverse, so I bought the correct tranself oil (expensive!) and started...

    Hey everyone - I have just purchased a 1998 Trafic Rimini Camper - and loving it - couple of quick questions - (I bet there will be a few more to come)... Please can you advise me what plugs into the 12v socket on the Zig Rig? - see pic :) Its smaller than a regular 12v socket so didn't know if...

    Hey all, My turbo sounds like it's disintegrated (think loose change in a washing machine). I have found a few refurbished and less eye wateringly expensive replacement turbo options online - just wondering if anyone has managed to swap a turbo on one of these Trafics at home? Or is it garage...

    Hello, My Trafic 2.0 DCi with the EDC16CP33 ECU wouldn't start at first, then I found out that there is no 12v+ on PIN M4 on the second Plug from the ECU, I fixed it, and now the car starts but really rugh, the idle is rough and it seems like the turbo ain't engaging at all! I've seen that M3...

    Hi fellas, I have a 2015 Trafic ll29 sport energy dci 120 and find it has very poor fuel economy. I'm spending a fortune on diesel and it just seems to be running very expensive. Does anyone else have a similar issue? When I cycle through the various readouts on the dash, the fuel economy reads...

    Hey guys. My Trafic won’t start. The battery seems good. 12.6volts and showing 767 cca on a 760 battery. When I turn the ignition key (2nd stage) there are 4 or 5 clicking noises seemingly coming from under the floor underneath the battery, which I’m presuming is where the starter motor is, or...

    Hello. I am having yet more issues with my Trafic. I believe it to be MAF related but equally after hou8rs of reading other posts it could be more. The van only seems to start when the glow plug light and EML lights are illuminated. (MAF Fault). When they aren't illuminated it starts and...

    Hi, Has anyone managed to remove/change sidelight bulb (halogen type) on a Trafic 2018 ? Manual says "twist and remove" - this removes the outer cover but the bulb holder still seems to be held into the headlight assy by some plastic clips, i have tried turning & squeezing, these clips every way...

    Hi all, Just joined forum and have a prob with my 2009 trafic 115. Runs & pulls as should until temp gets to normal then it starts to hold back and it seems like somebody flicking a switch off then on again, have seen once or twice 2 flickers of red lights in centre / bottom of dash. If anyone...

    Hey there, I'd like to know if it is possible to change the engine of a Renault Trafic 2011, it had an M9R 786 115 DCI engine as far as I know but it doesn't work anymore. I already spoke to a mechanic that says the car would accept another engine. Is it true, if so, what would be the...

    I have owned my 2011 Renault Trafic from new. In August 2017 I had three of the injectors replaced after originally complaining to Renault UK about them being heavily corroded due to the much documented scuttle panel seal failing. The dealer and Renault UK shared the cost of the repair and I...
  16. Wheels & tyres
    Hi hopefully someone can help please. The front passenger side wheel is leaning inwards causing the tyre to wear on the inside edge. Its really noticeable to look at. You would not know to drive it though. At first I though someone had backed into the wheel and possibly bent the strut. So far I...

    I had my Renault traffic van 1.9 dci fully serviced, one week later my clutch and gear box went so I spent a £1000 getting this fixed. When I got my van back there was a slight judder but got worse over 2 days. I done roughly 250 miles over them two days. By the end of the 2 days it got that bad...

    Hi All, Its been a while since I last posted and things have been going pretty well with "Fez" our 98 Trafic. He just went through MOT with small weld and I re did the rear brake lines and pistons but that was it. One thing I can't find reference to is ignition timing? I have a timing gun...

    Hi, I've got a 2002 1.9DCI Trafic which is driving me bonkers! She will start and run every time for weeks then she'll start drive about 30 feet and stop after that we leave her for about an hour and then we have to crank it for about a minute and she'll start and then be fine for another few...
