    Bonnet won't open.

    Mate seems to think the cables come off the latch due to the way it feels on the lever. So what's the next step. I thought about pushing the grills out and seeing what's what, unless anyone has any other ideas or experiences. Help appreciated. Josh.

    182 track rod arms.

    Renault said their £50 each. Little steep for what i thought. I did ask him was there any difference with it being a " cup ", He didnt seem to sure and said " because we got them in stock i dont think so "..! So my question is, are their differences in them to a 1.2 1.6 etc etc... Thanks... Josh
