  1. Engines
    dear renault owners, i have read most threads on here about white smoke but lack of knowledge on cars makes me unable to determine my problem. i have a laguna 1.9 dci with 200k on the clock, 05 plate, and love i to bits. I have owned it for a year and have had it sworn for the last 2 months due...
  2. Engines
    Hi chaps, I have an 03 Scenic 1.6 auto that has been neglected by the previous owner. I have done a full oil and filter change as the car sounded like an old diesel transit!!. This has quietened the engine down but now I can hear a mettalic rattle on drivers side of the engine. The rattle is...
  3. Brakes/Hubs
    Son's Clio - brakes suddenly fail. OSR brake drum is p****ng out fluid. Lining detached from one shoe. Fluid coming out of dust boot one end of slave cyl. I have replaced drum (teenagers cracked the hubcap flange, :frown2: grrrr!), bearing, slave cylinder and shoes. From the safety angle how...
  4. Transmissions
    The 59 reg 1.5dci 86 megane I purchased recently has a worrying symptom which I have so far been attributing to cold engine starts: engaging 1st gear and 2nd sends a shudder through the engine/gearbox and I find it struggling to get into gear. I have tried increasing the throttle but it doesn't...

  6. Brakes/Hubs
    Hi all A few weeks ago i had my disks and pads changed privately, when the guy was down i watched him do the work while i was chatting to him and all seem ok. Now normally there is a little bit of play in the brake pedal before I feel the bite of the brakes, but over the past few days ive bene...

    Hi all, Some posts ago I was asking about my now proven broken engine k9k 7 65hp. I have now had a second hand engine put in from a megane it's the k9k the same as the original but when they tested the original turbo it was fine and fitted it to the new engine, my concern is I cannot find...

    Good morning folks and thanks for reading. Just purchased a 2001 kangoo 1.2 petrol/LPG, converted out in the back as a camper...very happy everything runs beautifully smooth. However, just dropped it into my local renault dealer for a check-up to be told that Renault "don't do a factory fit...

    Hi, Need some advice on buying a Diesel Megane around 2006 plate. I used to have a Laguna 1.9dci 2006 with 40k that had turbo failure due to the EGR clogging (although it got cleaned regularly) and i am now worried about getting a Megane due to the same reason. It's the wife that wants one so...

  11. Cars & motoring
    Evening all! My laguna is coming up to 130,000 miles and was wondering if anyone on the forum knows of anything I should be looking out for. Service history is good, now having an oil and filter change every 6000 or so, recent pads all round, just flew through MOT aand goes like a bleeder...

    Hello, I'm new to this forum but was directed here to get the best advice, I have a Megane 2005 Automatic 1.6. It runs perfectly fine although very recently the engine keeps stalling and cuts out when I'm either just setting off from a junction or slowing down (low speeds so far)...

    Does every laguna owner have problem after problem with their car? Last Nov 2009 I bought a Jan 2007 mkII laguna 2.2 deisel auto sport tourer initiale with 75000 miles from a small dealer. It had been owned by Renault and drove very nicely and was immaculate. I have done about 5000miles with...

    Hi, have just found out that my dealer has ordered a 'Service Exchange' calliper from Renault France. I really thought they would have ordered a brand new one. Sure, the Service Exchange one costs £100 less, but is the £100 saving to me worth it or are (official Renault) Service Exchange parts...

    Hi we lost our scenic on the 1st Jan but are thinking of getting another. Problem is in Nov I took her to a local mechanic because water was coming in near the electric sunroof switches (sorry its a megane scenic 2002) he told me it was a common problem and water was entering through 4 holes on...

    This is my first renault since having a 5 GT Turbo many years ago. I got a 2001 3.0 auto Privilege and started her up yesterday only to have the annoying woman (not the wife, she left ages ago) tell me there was an ESP fault. should I be worried that this could be expensive or a big thing? oh...

    the pipe which leads from the intercooler to the egr(i think) on the inlet appeares to have a fair ammount of oil in, (enough for when i remove the pipe it drip's) and also further down the pipe where ther is a sensor ( i presume vacum) when i took this off there was a drip of oil on this also...

    Hi everyone, I've just joined the Forums and am really grateful that a resource like this exists! I've just bought a 2002 Laguna 1.9 Dynamique with 57k miles on the clock (without doing adequate research) and am horrified at the range of problems and repair bills that other Laguna owners have...
