can anyone tell me where all the ground points on megane 1 facelift 1.9dci?
coz i went to clean my egr, as i put my socket on one of the bolts it sparked like it was live it also happened when i went to undo a bolt on the aircon pump!!!
i did forget to disconnect battery on both occasions, but i dont think there should be a current through the engine to cause sparks when you put a socket on a bolt.
any help much appreciated

Sounds like the engine earth strap may have failed. Have a look around the gearbox and bell housing area - quite a common earth strap point.

Sorry I don't know it's exact location.

It should go from the engine to the bodywork.

Looks like your name is well chosen with your recent encounters with live wires.:d
