    So I know that from 95’ the Twingo could have airbags as an option, but I haven’t seen any on one before 97’ and I want to import one to the us so it needs to be pre 97’ (since I can wait til 2021). Does anyone know what a 96 or 95 Twingo with airbags looks like inside, like are there any...

    What was the first year the Twingo had airbags? I know on Wikipedia it said it was an option in 95’ but I’ve never seen one pre 97’ with a dashboard that looks like it could fit airbags, does anyone know?

    I was given a new radio from previous owner of the car but it wasn't installed when I bought the car. I've been trying to get the old radio out using the metal prongs but every time the left side pops out fine but the right side will not budge. I've tried several times and the same thing keeps...

    Hello, I am hoping to get some advice about my Renault Twingo 2007 Dynamique model. It is an older car with relatively low mileage (approx 110k km) which was due a major service last month. Among other things, all the spark plugs and fluids in the car were changed, as well as a new timing belt...

    Hi, I've had my Mk2 Twingo for 2 years now and I've always wanted to do some minor adjustments to the interior, especially by adding the tachometer from a higher spec model. I've got a base spec Freeway model (1.2 8V) which doesn't have the rev counter / tachometer. I'd like to know if it's...

    I have a Renault twingo extreme 60 ( year 2010) and today after getting out of my car and locking it I do my usual door handle check to see if it had locked and it hadn’t. So after numerous attempts of locking it and also trying to use the deadlock on it I have discovered that the driver’s side...

  11. Welcome to RenaultForums
    Great to find this forum, thanks. I got my Twingo last week. I'm delighted with it. I can't understand why reviews refer to the car being sluggish and needing to be thrashed to keep up with the traffic. I find that the car accelerates effortlessly on a light throttle and using few revs. Also...

    Hi everyone, hope this is in the right section! Took my Twingo to a garage after I encountered some issues with it starting up, then running when I was able to start it. I'm honestly not familiar with cars in the slightest, and the best way I could describe the issue was that it would rumble...

    Hello, New issue with my little Twingo dCi from 2012 (CN03) This morning, in the dark, I noticed the charging and STOP light is glowing, very weak though, but also when the engine is not started. It lit up as it should when stating and then it got back to the weak glowing. Is there a common...

    I have a glitchy CC on my 2013 1.5D Twingo. It is so that the CC only reacts to input when the steering wheel is at ~nine o'clock. As you can imagine that draws some attention on the road when I try and get it to work, people think I am having spasms behind the wheel. It startet last winter...
