    Howdy folks, this is my first post after lurking for a while, please be gentle. The main thing that has arisen in the last week is that when I brake at even low speeds it feels like the ABS is kicking in when it shouldn't and doesn't feel like it used to. It feels really clunky and bumpy and...

    Ok all. So basically long story short, my car has a sound which sounds like a vibrating noise coming from the exhaust. Now I've had the exhaust looked out and noting is touching nor the heat shields are loose. I've recently had a new head gasket and my mechanic said the engine is in an excellent...

    Hello everyone! I never understood the way the fuel gauge works on my clio IV. I don't know if my fuel gauge is faulty or if this is the way it works on the clio IV so I hope someone with the same car can post some feedback. What happens is that I think the fuel gauge always shows much more...

    Hello all, I bought a 2003 Clio 1.5 DCi, the front is extremely stiff and very noticeable while driving, looks very low too, maybe a previous owner put wrong springs/dampers ? On further investigation, it's sat/resting on the bump stops, could it have petrol springs/dampers?
