Looking for some pointers please guys. I appreciate these things are difficult to diagnose but here goes anyway.
My 172 Cup has started cutting out when cold. Basically, I’ll start it up in the morning with the intention of letting it warm up. After around minute or so the engine just stops...
Looking for recommendations for good seat covers for the front seats of my 172 Cup please. I do a lot of running and cycling in the Hills and regularly come back to the car wet and muddy.
At present I’ve got some generic e bay specials which are actually ok for the £10 each they cost but I...
I bought my 172 Cup with only one key, which works perfectly. It locks and unlocks the car remotely (using the button on the fob). It starts the car etc.
I wanted to get an additional key as a spare in case I lost the one I already have.
So, I had a local auto locksmith round...
Bought a 172 Cup earlier this year after taking the crazy notion that I wanted a Clio. Looked at all sorts of cars from 172s to 200s but never quite found the right car.
In the end I decided to buy what I thought was a known quantity, a 172 Cup that although being far from perfect...
One of the headrests in my Cup has become dislodged from the fixings so I’m trying to find a replacement.
I have the headrest in at a local upholstery place but the guy is dragging his feet.
I’m not having much luck in finding a replacement headrest from a Cup so, my question is...
Im having my Turinis refurbed and although the centre caps are in perfect condition, the diamonds are extremely tired looking and tarnished.
Does anyone have a link to somewhere I can buy new diamonds without having to pay 25 quid for centre caps?
My 172 Cup has non OEM headlights and I want to change them for proper Renault ones. I’ve got a chance of a pair of OEM lights on eBay that the seller says are from a Cup but, how exactly do I determine if they are or not ?
My question is, did the 172 Cup come with model specific...
Thought it maybe wise I’d introduce myself on here as currently trying to get back into a Clio after many years away from them.
I joined this forum a very long time ago when I owned a Ph1 172, which I loved. I gradually grew out of the car, sold it to my brother who is now on his...
Hi guys! happy new year and all that!
I wonder if its possible to adjust the idle on my Ph1 172 as when hot it idles at 750 rpm and below and its causing the oil light to flicker on in extreme cases
I think its supposed to idle at 850 rpm +?
Can this be adjusted back up?
First of all can i wish you all a merry xmas!
My problem is as follows.... a few months back i had new rear pads fitted as they were running low, a couple of weeks after this i noticed one of the back brakes locking on as the wheel was very hot during normal driving. The car was up...
My mk1 172 has gradually developed a running and starting issue. Starts perfectly from cold but then runs with slight miss fire until warm and has intermittent hot start problems.
Would I be correct in guessing that the cause of this is faulty engine coolant temp sensor?
Im kinda struggling here so I hope you can help!
I had a fully operational and working phase one 172 alarm( the after market kinda add on ones with the red LED by the gear stick) and I lost the only key fob I owned.
When contacting renault I was offred two options 1. to pay the...
Timing belt snapped on my Ph1 172 and im really just looking for advice as to what to do next. My mates garage has confirmed its def the belt thats failed and is taking the head off as we speak.
Am I best just to get any any bent valves replaced (or whole 16?) and put a Timing belt...
Quick question, My Ph 1 172 is totally standard. Is there any way of adjusting the camber on the front??
I know you cant do it via the shocks but is the hub its self adjustable?? or the wishbone like a VW??
Does anyone have any experience of these?? Seemingly they replaced the eagle F1 that is on my car atm.
Im really struggling to get tyres and these seem to be the only ones any of the local places have in stock!!
Im getting quoted a wait of over a week for PE2s
Alright folks, Gonna get some new wheels for my PB Phase 1 172 and really looking for some ideas and opinions.
Car is currently on the standard F1s which are kerbed to hell(previous owner!)
I was thinkking of just getting the F1s refurbed and painted black or dark grey but Im also thinking...
Alright folks. My Drivers side window failed last night and after taking the door car off today there were a few snapped wires lying at the bottom of the door.
Do I need a new regulator??
If so, are they all the same?
As i've mentioned on here previously i recently changed the back shocks and springs on my newly acquired Ph1 172.
Now, This has fixed the problem that I originally had (the back end feeling very unstable, even in a straight line). What we found was the drivers side shock had almost completley...
I know this has been discussed before but I cant really find any definative answers.
My standard system has now seen better days and is blowing pretty badly at the centre section.
Its starting to affect my MPG so I'll need to do something about this sooner rather than...
I've had the above car for about 2 weeks now and the rear suspension just doesnt feel right.
One of the rear springs was broken so I changed that and its only really made a slight improvement.
The car is fine at slow speeds but at motorway speeds it just doesnt feel safe!!
Im trying to re enter the code for the radio in my Ph1 172 and im sure im doing it correctly!! Im following the manual and entering the code written in my service book.
After I enter the code and it beeps the display just sits at CODE and nothing happens.
What am I doing wrong??
