    Any idea what this noise could be?

    Sounds like a wheel is loose.

    Gearbox STILL bloody leaking!

    Are you looking at the bottom of the gearbox, seeing fluid and assuming it’s leaking from above? Renault gearbox’s are designed to lose/leak fluid as a way of self lubricating.

    PAS pump - float/play

    The "new" one ive just put on my car did this and i thought it was odd but it works fine.

    I use the horse shoe to put the inlet cam timing slightly out so when you tighten the dephaser it pulls the cam into the correct final position. Its obviously not the correct procedure but it works for me.

    Slight leak head gasket! Advice please guys!

    I think you raise at least 2 valid points here. The first takes me back to the time I lost a dock side bet and was forced at gun point to pleasure a chimp dressed as an Asian businessman. Thirdly it takes 2 to tango! That car was upside down when I got here and as for your grandmother? Well...

    Slight leak head gasket! Advice please guys!

    06 Clio's were a nightmare for (slightly) leaking oil from what appeared to be the head gasket.

    Oil filter and oil change

    Thats fair enough. I know everyone is different but i personally prefer to use a cheaper oil but change it more often. If you are after a decent oil ive heard Royal Purple is about as good as it gets.

    Oil filter and oil change

    Seems like an expensive option for a road car.

    Misfire - failed code reader says....

    looks in enough to me they can be a pain to seat properly. I certainly wouldnt say thats the reason for a miss fire as both my middle injectors look like that and my car runs fine.

    Im sure someone will answer your question but if you put your reg number into eurocarparts website it will show you a list of bits suitable for your car.

    Mig welders

    Im thinking of getting something along these lines when i get back to work. Seems to have most bases covered.

    K20 clio 182 without chassis or subframe modification?

    They'll take 800bhp if you give them forged rods and uprate the valve springs. Crazy motors, you can get them to 330bhp naturally aspirated. I cant think of a better 4 cylinder engine i'd love to have even a standard one in the clio.

    Does it cost much money in gas to run a mig or tig?

    Trying to save a £300 172 cup

    If the belt was done 9 years ago it will need changing based on age not mileage. Cambelt is 5 years or 72000 miles. If you're not planning on keeping it i wouldnt bother with the cambelt but it needs doing if you are.

    Trying to save a £300 172 cup

    Cambelt isn’t too tricky on the Cup’s. I researched the process on here and there was more than enough information to give me the confidence to give it a go. Might as well pull the engine and do the clutch at the same time 👍

    Handling issues

    No engine mount wont give those issues. I'd say the most likely culprit is a worn bottom end ball joint.

    What have you done to your car today ???

    Fitted an oil temp sensor. Then got a chance to test my 0-60 on the dragy. Totally standard just stripped interior and timed to perfection.

    Be careful not to over tighten the bolts holding the manifold in place.

    Cup drive shafts don't have the centre bearing on the driver side shaft.

    ECU cover nut on turret

    Didnt fully read your post!! You could add a second nut. That way it would clamp the one behind it.

    ECU cover nut on turret

    Mine looks exactly the same. I ended up bending that nut/bracket bit over with some pliers and pinched whats left of the ecu bracket. Not the prettiest solution but works well enough.

    Cambelt change, just venting

    Same thing happened to me. Not fun.
