    I have a 2011 Renault modus 1.5dci, I've had it from new. It's only done 30k miles. Should I change the timing belt? If so Should I change the water pump and tensioner as well.? I believe the timing belt should be changed as it has aged but I think the Tensioner and water pump can do another...

    I bought a new Megane earlier this year, and was promised the Rlink2 maps were better than the current TomTom carminat that I had in the old megane, as Renault now did them and they were free. Well clearly they are not as up to date as TomTom, and releases have been slow, but there is a payment...

    My Megane, 2005 registered, 30,000, yes only 30,000 miles cos I am an elderly driver and use it for short runs to/fro supermarket doctors etc. Anyway, I am thinking its about time to change the battery. The car does always start, but seems to hesitate when the starter turns the engine. I have...

    Hi all, I purchased a Laguna 2 1.8 2003 petrol in 2005 and since then have had constant problems with emissions being high every time I put it through MOT. It started a few months after purchasing the vehicle when a Lambda sensor failed. Unfortunately Renault didn't know how to do their...

    I've just been checking my service book and it recommends changing the airbags after 10 years. This seems a bit drastic and no doubt will cost a lot. Has anyone had any exeperiene of this with their Clio? Presumably this means replacing all airbags in the cabin. If I went for a warranty of...

    Good afternoon serious question, my Traffic 2.0 diesel bought new in late 2008 snapped it's cam chain, offered Renault the chance to strip it to see why the part may have failed, note I did not ask for free repair or engine, just offered them the car to look at in good faith for analysis. They...
