    Frayz's Inferno 182 - Back in the old flame

    I'm envious of cold AC at the moment! Would you mind sharing the part number for the Nissen drier?

    Thanks, they look great.

    Racing Blue 182 Restoration.

    Cheers. So do they spray the wheels in 2K or were they powder coated?

    Racing Blue 182 Restoration.

    Do you get the centres finished to match or buy new ones? Everyone I try only offers powder coating and either can’t do the centres or can’t match the colour of new centres.

    front arch plastic cover over lower belts?

    Sorry to hijack a thread, but could anyone tell me the name and part number of the vertical metal bar that bolts to the lower wishbone (just left of centre of the red box in the OP’s photo)? The missing part of the wheel arch liner clips to it.

    Frayz's Inferno 182 - Back in the old flame

    Couldn't agree more. My Sprayshack anthracite dash strips, gear and steering wheel insert still look perfect after however many years (10?). I'd love to have all the rubberised plastics to match but in a satin finish, I've stripped the rubber finish and used 2k semi-gloss lacquer but it's...

    Clutch Ratchet Problem?

    So I’ve established that the clutch cable hasn’t snapped and is connected both ends. I can rotate the semi-circular black ratchet and it springs back when let go. I assume there should be some sort of teeth that connect to the ratchet to stop it springing back?

    Exhaust diagram 182

    Thanks, that’s a great help. A quick google suggests 25mm but it looks like no-one makes then aside from Renault.

    Amp & Underseat Sub With Original Head Unit.

    Yes they do. All 6 speakers work when plugged directly into the headunit. Only the rear speakers and dash tweeters when through the amp. Thanks again.

    Amp & Underseat Sub With Original Head Unit.

    Thanks for the reply. The Pioneer door speakers and tweeters just plugged straight in to the standard wiring and the amp is using the standard iso plugs so I’m now confused as hell as to why the tweeters are working but the door speakers aren’t!

    How did you do it? I would like to replace the bolts that mount the hangers to item 10 on the fourth image. Anyone know the sizes required? Thanks.

    Amp & Underseat Sub With Original Head Unit.

    So I didn’t buy a sub in the end. I bought a Connects2 Bluetooth adaptor that simply plugs into the cd changer port on the stereo and works very well. I also bought a Pioneer 4 channel amp which again simply plugs in. However, the 182 has six speakers and the 4 channels amplified are the rear...

    Clutch Ratchet Problem?

    The clutch pedal on my 04 182 had zero resistance the other day, just pushed freely to the floor. After tapping it with my foot a few times it just returned to normal. It has now gone back to zero resistance. I’ve checked the linkage rod is in place. I can turn the ratchet plastic manually with...

    Cup Vs Non Cup 182 Rear Shocks

    I am about to fit 172 Cup front dampers on my 182. Should I be fitting rear cup dampers also?

    Amp & Underseat Sub With Original Head Unit.

    Finally worked out that the head unit uses standard ISO connectors?!! So no adapter harnesses needed.

    Amp & Underseat Sub With Original Head Unit.

    Actually, the supplied amp with the Alpine SWE 1200 doesn't power speakers does it? Just the sub.

    Amp & Underseat Sub With Original Head Unit.

    Thanks. I saw that but didn't realise that it was both amp and sub! Sounds good and solves the connection from amp to sub. Still confused on the cabling needed from head unit to amp and amp to speaker harness though...

    Amp & Underseat Sub With Original Head Unit.

    I know that the best advice is to ditch the original head unit in my 2004 Clio 182. However, I would like to keep it looking original, so I'm going to stick with the Cabasse. I already have the Pioneer TS-Q131C door speakers and tweeters that I fitted years ago (and made very little difference)...

    BG 182 Project

    I’ve heard of and have tried using a razor on bobbly Alcantara but have not heard of sanding it. Does it work well?

    OE04UYN - RB FF 182 (ex The Boosh's Motor)

    Could you link to these? Heard of them but can't find them!

    Belts and dephaser time

    I’ve heard of Grange once or twice on here so assume they are fine for a belts change. Before I call them on Monday, any idea what they charge for a full 182 belts inc aux, dephaser and water pump?

    Cambelt Recommendation South Wales

    Hi all, who is currently recommended to do a dephaser/cambelt change in South Wales? I used APD in Swansea for the car's first belt but he doesn't seem to be there any more and now it is time for another. Is Grange Service Station in Cardiff still good for these? Cheers.

    Legal Short/Small Number Plates?

    Yes, the 1973 to 2001 regs look worse than the current ones, in that the letters must be either 64mm or 57mm wide, so larger than the current 50mm. They are for vehicles constructed prior to 1/1/1973 (though I'm sure I read somewhere this was extended to tax free historic vehicles, but can't...

    Legal Short/Small Number Plates?

    Cheers, I missed that bit, the regs apply to when the plate was manufactured, not to the car. Obv my 2004 plate was manufactured after 2001, but I could have a dateless plate from before. Interestingly I also found that since 2008 it has been an offence to manufacture or supply what we might...

    Legal Short/Small Number Plates?

    BS AU 145d: Retroreflecting Numberplates was produced in 1998, and last amended in 2001. The Road Vehicles (Display of Registration Marks) Regulations 2001, which makes the BS a legal requirement, came in in, yup 2001. Don't think your idea will work on my 04 plated 2004 182 somehow :) The regs...

    Legal Short/Small Number Plates?

    Thanks for the replies. Cheers, I've asked them. Yes, by regulation. Still not legal though. Looks like they suspended the MOT fail for no BS marking, or supplying post code, back in 2009. They do still fail for the following: It goes on to say: but then they show the correct...

    Clio bonnet - up and down movement when closed - normal?

    Check with your local Renault stealer, to see if it has been in for the bonnet catch recall. If it hasn't, you should get a free check/greasing, or new catch if it is really bad.

    Legal Short/Small Number Plates?

    A quick measure of the recess on the 182's front bumper shows it to be around 100mm deep. I know there are lots of suppliers that will do "showplates" (forgot to take them off didn't I guv, honest!), but I'm looking for a legal alternative. Regulations are that the number plates must show the...

    182 Changed Washer Pump, Still No Screenwash

    Yes, I'd done the slider filling trick some years ago. Did you buy those part numbers? I used 488545100 for the screen pump from carparts 4 less, £10 odd.
