    Trolley Jacks 2021

    So just to add to the “SGS jacks are sh*t” numbers; my 3 tonne low profile Jack hasn’t lasted 4 years and it’s decided to give up the ghost. Therefore, Halfords it is this time round…

    Aftermarket Crank Pulley

    Yup that’s identical to my one from PMS, got yourself a bargain there.

    Aftermarket Crank Pulley

    I used this one from Pure Motorspor when I had my belts done earlier in the year, as the Renault OEM was still unavailable at the time:- https://www.pure-motorsport.co.uk/damped-crank-pulley-oe-equivalent seemed pretty good quality and has been absolutely fine since fitting back in March...

    Powerflex Rear Spring Pads

    Just to round this off for any future searches etc. I ended up opting for the powerflex spring pads, purely due to them having 20% off on eBay. Seemed to fit pretty well, so time (and the better weather in the spring) will tell if they’re any good.

    Powerflex Rear Spring Pads

    Currently in the midst of replacing the rear axle bushes on my 172 and when I removed the rear springs, I’ve found that the OEM rubbers are utterly shot; lower ones are particularly bad as it looks like the springs have rubbed right through the pads, but suppose that was to be expected with...

    182 cup pack spring options, shocks and top mounts ?

    Yup, I just gave them a quick clean up and popped them into the febi ones. They’re only a spacer/landing surface for the top hat/cap to butt up against, so no issues with reusing them.

    182 cup pack spring options, shocks and top mounts ?

    This thread is pretty comprehensive in explaining how these spacers fit with the updated Renault top mounts. https://cliosport.net/threads/172-new-top-mount-modified-spacer-issues.641094/ I’ve read on here (and there’s a bit in the above thread) that quite a few people have had issues with...

    182 cup pack spring options, shocks and top mounts ?

    I bought my nuts, bolts and washers for the front shocks from https://www.westfieldfasteners.co.uk/. If a remember rightly, I bought:- M14 x 60mm 10.9 BZP bolts (would buy 65mm length next time round) M14 BZP-8 thick nyloc nuts M14 Form A BZP washers just checked on their site and 4 bolts, 4...

    Wiring Diagrams

    I’ll put the zip file here in case others need it. This is contains all the files that were previously held in various threads on CS but organised into separate folders and also includes a few others that were on here but not in the original zip from years back (I.e official Renault ph2 fuse...

    sent you over am PM with a zip file of diagrams I have, so hopefully these will be of some help.

    Not getting up to temp?

    This might seem random, but it might be worth checking or getting the battery checked as I had something similar when I had my 106 GTI years ago. The oil temperature gauge starting acting like a mini rev counter, no other electrical weirdness other than this. Got the battery tested and turned...

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    Just to update this thread for the time being. Checked the horn wiring as Louis suggested, but all seemed fine. So with the light annoying me, and tbh being a bit of a distraction whilst out on the road, I managed to find a pin diagram for ph2 UCH connectors (buried in the depth of CS), which...

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    I‘ll have a look and see if there is anything obvious with horn wiring. I run a phase 1 type stalk, so i don’t have to have the horn wiring running to the centre push button on the wheel, to try and avoid any issues like squib shorting out, but as you say, worth a look.

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    @JamesBryan it looks like it’s an annotated version of the list contained with this wiring diagram I’ve attached. @Louis i do have an OMP when fitted, but it’s been on there for 4 years and i‘ve had all the airbags in the car properly deactivated via the airbag ecu (so no resistors required)...

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    Cheer James, didn’t even see that list in amongst all the manuals I’ve got downloaded. I’ll try and cross reference these to the diagrams and see if there’s any of the relevant ones I haven’t check checked yet.

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    @Louis that’s exactly what it seeme like tbh, but having checked and cleaned all the earths I know of, it has made no difference, hence why I had gone to looking further into the wiring/UCH/fusebox. That said, if anyone knows any other earths related to the UCH/fusebox/dash clocks etc. then...

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    Done some more investigation into this and still at a bit of a loss. Decided to strip the UCH out again and have a closer look at the circuit board as well as give it a good clean with contact cleaner. Didn’t make any difference…but, when I was putting the UCH back in the car, I noticed that...

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    Thanks to @JamesBryan reminding me about the dash top earths, so been out tonight and checked them. Even though they looked absoltules fine, I unbolted them, cleaned them clean and put them back together, but still no change unfortunately. Even though I hate electrics and electronics, I...

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    Literally nothing, just started out of the blue when I went out to the car one day the light was doing it, which again makes it all the stranger.…but it is a 19 year old french baguette so nothing really surprises me anymore.

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    Isn’t it just, it’s a right pain in the proverbial 😂 Forgot all about the dash top earths, will need to have a look at them and see if there’s anything amiss with them.

    Immobiliser dash light “backlit”

    I’m sure most will be relieved this is not another immobiliser issue thread. It is, however, a bit of an odd one. Recently, the immobiliser red light in the centre of the dash clocks on my 172 has become “backlit” and dimly glows all the time. The light still flashes as it should when the car...

    Power Tool Perverts

    Not found an excuse to properly use it yet (poor effort I know), but it certainly has a good weight to it and feels a robust unit.

    Hot starting problem

    Could also be worth a check and clean of the big white multiplug under the fuse box as well, whilst you’re under the bonnet. I’ve seen a few others on here have throttle pedal fault codes come up and eventually trace it back to the age old ’corrosion in the white plug’. Worth a try before...

    Hot starting problem

    Potentially crankshaft position sensor, they normally like to cause hot start issues. Worth a check to see if you’re car has to old black plug sensor or the updated blue plug sensor, as the old black ones like to play up. Regardless, it would be worth whipping the sensor out and giving it a...

    Lowering Steering Wheel

    I ordered M8 x 6.3mm thick by the looks of my eBay order history and had no issues with using the standard bolts. I’m sure 8mm thickness would be no issue, but I ended up playing it safe and ordered the 6.3mm (1/4”) ones.

    Lowering Steering Wheel

    Russ, I used 2 of these spacers from eBay:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stainless-Steel-Spacer-Standoff-Collar-Stand-off-Spacers-M5-M6-M8-M10-/291169910104?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0 Cost me just a shade under £5 and was able to re-use the original...

    B-G Racing Steering Wheel Quick Release Adaptor - reliable for track use?

    I seem to remember I got mines from venom motorsport as well, and yeah it does look like they use a generic image for the website item.

    B-G Racing Steering Wheel Quick Release Adaptor - reliable for track use?

    @VenomUK this is my NRG 2.8 QR with a crude measurement made using a tape. A mate of mine emailed driftworks when we bought these and confirmed all the NRG QR’s are the same height/depth, regardless of the model. I’m also using the same Momo boss as @MrBlonde has. Hope this is of some use.

    PMS shifter - mods to ease the rattle

    Pretty much as per frayz post above:- - I filled the sector rod with lead shot (ensure you leave enough of a gap at the end of the rod to allow the the front pivot to be lengthene/shorted when setting up the shifter - I didn’t and had to take the rod back off to empty some of the shot back out...
