not posted in a while, so heres a question :rasp:
Are the front wings from a 197 the same as the 200 wings?
And the rear bumper, is that the same? e.g. 197 to 200? par the diffuser in the middle?
Front passengers side feels vague through the steering.
Feels like something's grinding or catching.
Its only on when turning a 90 degree corner going right.
I've jacked up that side, no play in bearing,
Cv joints look fine,
Arb bushes have little splits in them.
The top mounts are on...

Pulled my steering wheel abit to hard as it genuinely wouldn't come off
ended up breaking one of the connectors to the airbag
I noticed the wiring is built into a pick up ring.

Ive got a spare engine(ph1 172 engine)
I know that most 172/182 that are standard dont run the bhp figures that are stated.
Firstly Why is this?
What is the best way of getting the stated figures?

i wont be using the clio hardly at all. ( around 1/2months)
I was told earlier by a lad that he left his clio 172. the battery went dead overtime, and when he went to come back to it, the immob locked and it decoded itself. and he needed a new ecu and uch or something?
Is this bullshit?
Im after Prevention on steering wheel melting
Most times I'll leave the 182 in garage, but sometimes I carnt.
When I leave it out, I can get in it and the steering wheel be very sticky along the sides!
Its not bad at all at the minute
but I don't want it to get worst!
Par sticking it in...

fitted my front coilovers(refurbed) with new renault topmounts- the updated version.
Now its a very faint knock when turning and going over a slight bump?
it doesnt do it when stationary.
its not loud, just feels abit weird, like somethings loose? nothings loose of course.
when opening the...
took my bumper off to find
"dyna" on the front slam?
I asked the previous owner and he never wrote it there so thought it was a tad weird( only 1 owner before me)
then i saw this picture of "ICE" in exactly the same position as where my "dyna" is...
This is what ive currently got....
The silver cup is to sit on the spring... then the silver spacer infront of it? came with the coilover....
I had no topmounts on. The blue nyloc came on the coilovers when refurbed.
Now which order does it all go in???
set timing correctly with correct tools with correct process.
The horseshoe went straight in. Perfect!
started the engine without aux belt on & jacked up.

Using matts pic(cheers) hope you dont mind!
On my cambelt- tensioned up, timing correct, horseshoe goes in with a little wiggle
My tensioner is is lined up with BC. belt tight!
But when i crank over by hand. it sometimes slightly moves eg B moves away from C

Process:: just to make sure im doing it right before i start....
Turn over to to tdc so pin goes in(if u look through hole you can see key way)
horseshoe in if doesn't fit turn cam sprockets to get in position for horseshoe to fit
put 1509 tool on cambelt side. Lock sprockets. Undo...
Timing on a sport engine.
The timing is out as the tool won't go in easily( takes a big push)
I move each sprocket to get the tool in easily
Then I loosen sprockets, put belt on, tension
Take tools out-the horseshoe is hard to get out when removing..
and it's exactly the...

Some of you may know me but i used to own this
Was my first RS and was great.
I always wanted a RB 182 but it never really happened.

Not sure which to get
can get the newer standard versions from ren for around 90
or can get pure motorsport for 130
