    Clio 172/182 - Too small?

    Check out the Carfection video with Henry Catchpole reviewing his own 182. He’s at least 6 3, and one of the best reviewers out there.

    Hole in 172 gearbox - Options

    Pretty sure I’ve got all the bits. Only one roller bearing let go. If I try the quiksteel route, I assume I need the aluminium version of the paste? Many thanks for your advice on this as well as my previous instalment!

    Hole in 172 gearbox - Options

    Afternoon all. So a while back I sheared the tripod off the NS driveshaft. After much magnet fishing I got all the bits out, but one of the lobes from the tripod has pushed a hole in the gearbox casing. It was very stuck. So any thoughts on how to plug the hole? Special magic glue / sealant? Get...

    Gearbox Ate My Driveshaft on a Targa Rally- Garage Needed Around Farnborough

    Drained the oil and found no needle bearings in the oil. Took the shaft out. I could feel the missing third circular lobe jammed just inside the gearbox casing, between the case and the bolt in plate. Managed to get that out, although I can feel another piece. Two questions: Is the bolt in plate...

    Gearbox Ate My Driveshaft on a Targa Rally- Garage Needed Around Farnborough

    Gearbox Ate My Driveshaft on a Targa Rally- Garage Needed Around Farnborough

    So I’m now having the car shipped home so I can sort it during lockdown. Any idea if the 172 gear box has a magnet inside to catch any bits? Or is the gearbox likely to be shot. Being glass half full, I was hoping to fish the bits out, whack a new shaft in and hope for the best! Thoughts??

    172 Radio Code Request

    Afternoon Could anyone help with a radio code for my 172. Have been living with it for a year but tomorrow I have a fairly long drive for a targa rally. I believe the relevant numbers from the side of the radio unit are TR796. Cheers all
