    What paint could I use on brake discs?

    i used silver High temp paint from halfords on the focus, mask as much of the disc as you can/be bothered to, when dry go up the road and touch the brakes and all the excess will come off leaving a nice edge lol

    Heater resistor question.

    A mate's resistor pack, packed in two weeks ago, his was stuck on full blast instead off not blowing And i only replaced the part for him today, so hes had the heaters full blast for two weeks so would be the same i guess? Lol

    Cruise control dropping out with indicator

    maybe the standard issue of the connections/earths for the rear lights? when indicating the car may think you're illuminating the brake light and cancelling the cruise?

    The Mysterious Beeping Noise

    Sounds a strange one, maybe worth getting a video of the noise and uploading, In regards to the starter, i thought mine was on my way out on my 1.2 16v, id turn the key and nothing happened (yours doesnt sound like this but worth a look) The little white exciter wire to the starter motor, the...

    Clio Cup Splitter - Pricey?

    They look like a breakers, more than likely they have taken it off a 182 bumper not knowing it wouldnt be genuine

    Car won't start after clearing fault code

    I doubt you would have done any ecu damage, It maybe different to a 182, but i plugged in my non sport before with a cheap code reader and the lead had a poor connection with the reader and caused a little spark, and it then wouldnt start (it wouldnt even turn over so is probably different to...

    Serv light flashing, no central locking, car won't start, no windows etc

    @aiyaz id be starting with checking the earths, especially the thick one that goes from the the gearbox to the chassis, its in the passenger side wheel arch. Also maybe worth seeing what the battery condition is like, clios do some strange stuff when the battery is on its way out

    Tinny noise on power, 1.2 clio

    No worries, heres one on ebay with the sensors so one less job for £45 Im guessing the ktec one would be a cat-back system, so it would bolt to your standard cat so it wouldnt replace it :(

    Tinny noise on power, 1.2 clio

    A second hand one can be had for sub £50 maybe cheaper in a scrappys or by keeping an eye out, no major adverse effects really, itll just sound a little blowy, and maybe have a slight impact on mpg.

    Tinny noise on power, 1.2 clio

    Ahh good, i used to get concerned at mayo in the cap, but i do 350 mile a week in mine on a run so havent seen it in a while The flexi is part of the cat (borrowed the pic below off google) Its one olive joint clamp which will no doubt be rusted beyond use, so its best to relace, and two nuts...

    Standard CD player confused?

    Braved the weather, and it was indeed a 15a fuse in passenger side dash, glad it was something easy :smile: Previous owner had left few metal bits in the 12v port so when i turned the car on it sparked a little lol

    Standard CD player confused?

    Little bit of a strange one, had a search but cant find anything similar, Basically, the cd player doesnt come on with the ignition, and doesnt go off when you turn the car off, Whilst driving it thinks the car is off and beeps and shuts off to save power If it was aftermarket id be looking...

    Tinny noise on power, 1.2 clio

    You can have a look from under the bonnet at the flexi, look over the back of the engine between the coolant bottle and engine and you'll spot it, just have a feel round there see if you can feel it blowing, watch your hand as itll be hot lol It may not be the thermostat, but my car had a small...

    Tinny noise on power, 1.2 clio
