My daily runner, a mint 2002 1.2 16v Clio Dynamique recently had the standard Valeo Locking Fuel Cap stolen & fuel was syphoned from the car while parked on the street.
I have located a replacement standard used locking petrol cap but wondered if any members knew of a more secure Fuel...
I've just treated my RB182 to a full set of 4 new Michelin PS3's.
The tyre place put 37 psi in the fronts & 33 psi in the backs.
I think this is way too high.
I usually put 33 psi in the fronts & 30 psi in the backs.
What pressures do you guys put in?
The tyres are 205/45 x 16.
Has anyone tried Motrio 5w/40 Super Extra Fully Synthetc Engine Oil in their 182?
I've used it for ages in my 1.2 Dynamique & it's superb!
As for my RB 182 though I'm not sure.
Interesting to hear any views or expert opininons.
I had thought of using Fuchs 5w/40 or Valvoline Synthetic 5w/40 but...
I have recently been in youch with a guy selling a 182 FF & noticed that the he had put on a new set of 195 size tyres as opposed to 205's.
Could anybody explain if there are any advantages in using size 195 as opposed to the standard size of 205's
The only advantage I could think of is...
I viewed a Clio 182 FF both cup packs today & noticed that the tyre sizes were 195/45 R16 80V (Tyres Toyo Proxes)
I understand that the oe tyrs for the 172 Clio were 195's & the 182 are 205's?
Can any members advise me whether the Toy's on the car are suitable & legal, insurance wise as...
If anyone knows the owner of the RB 182 Clio with Gordini Stripes (Reg no starting KY05) that I saw on Wednesday 23/03 about 3.30pm in Radcliffe, Manchester please pm me.
I'd really like first refusal when the owner decides to sell this lovely example!haha!
The reversing lights on my Clio started working only intermittently a few weeks ago & now they've stopped working altogether.
I understand that a new reversing lights switch (which screws into the left side of the gearbox) switch is required.
Has anybody on here done this job?
About 3.30 this afternoon saw an absolutely lovely Racing Blue (with Gordini Stripes) 182 in Radcliffe, Manchester.
The reg no began with KY05.
Does anyone on here know who's it is?
I've been after one like this for quite a while!
Has anyone successfully got rid of the wind noise/squeal above 80 mph that appears to come from near the vents at the centre of the dash board on some 182's ?
I've read that some owners have had the windscreen out & re-sealed & that has fixed it, also there's a small hole for a temperature...
I'm looking for a reputable independent or Renault Technician who works from home to do the above work on a 2004 FF 182 Clio I'm going to buy if I can get the above work done at a reasonable cost.Any recommendations would be much appreciated!
Further to my Thread yesterday regarding the Black Clio 182 54 plate I'm interested in buying,are there any members in the Truro area of Cornwall who are willing to give the car a quick once over for me?I'm in Manchester so a long way off!
I'd be very grateful .The 182 is at a garage...
I'm looking for a good independent or Renault technician who works from home in the Stockport/Manchester area.
I don't want to take my Clio to the main dealer as they are rather pricy to say the least!
Can anyone help please?
I'm currently running a 1.2 16v Dynamique but am on the lookout...
For a while now the orange coil light on the dash of my Clio 1.2 16 valve comes on without warning and stays on until suddenly going off.
While the lights on the car runs as normal & the fuel consumption is fine as well.
Can anybody throw any light on this problem?
I went to look at an immaculate Clio Sport 182 today which is for sale.
Didn't get to test drive the car but sat in it & tried the clutch pedal & couldn't believe how stiff/firm the pedal action was.
Is this a trait of 182's?
Maybe someone could confirm if this is normal for the car.
Just joined today.
Currently own a 51 plate Black Clio Dynamique 1.2 16v FSH which I've owned since new & has only done 61000 miles from new.
Have had my eye on owning a Clio Sport though for a while.
Test driven a 200 11 reg which was superb but felt 'big'.
Think I'd settle for a Black...
