i feel i deserve right of reply on this thread considering it is about my car, and I am not going to pay membership fee for the privilege to do so.
this kind of petty, small-mindedness is exactly why I stopped paying...
So as per the title really, my gbox now whines a bit - can only assume that some oils leaked since having the above done. Is there a way to check the gbox oil level? How much should be in there and what weight etc.
It seems to come from the right hand side of the engine bay and only under hard acceleration.. So assumed it was the engine mounts.
The cars done 191k, i've had the clutch replaced and presumably the engine mounts, when reinstalled after dropping the subframe to get the gbox / engine apart have...
So i was driving along when all of a sudden the speedo just drops to 0. When i give the engine a blip, it'll come back to life, seems to be worse in the wet and can only assume its a sensor.
Which part do i need and how hard is it to fit?
Its a 2002 model..
OK so my 172 has done 190k and is starting to feel like the original clutch is on its way out... Which clutch should i get the Valeo or transmech from euro car parts.
In addition, whilst this is being done should get the water pump done at the same time or is this in a totally different area...
guessing i should replace coils & shocks at the same time as they've never been done?
my car is getting on in miles (140k) so don't really want to spend a mint; upgrade is a nice idea but getting/keeping the set-up right seems to be a minefield and to be honest the ride is already hard...
saw quite a few today, so thought i may as well post them up...
racing blue 182, no stripes, yeovil
paul j, also yeovil
another racing blue, with stripes, a35 near dorchester (your passenger headlamp needs a new bulb)
monaco blue, a303, private reg J9 #EE, don't know if it was an O or D...
could some kind sir or madam put this grille onto a monaco bleu 172 pls?
i want some idea of how bad it's going to look against the std top grille and in general...
a side-by-side "spot the difference" style montage would be ideal :cool:
i seek a bottom grill which has a smaller mesh than standard so that stones can't chip my AC condensor (again)
anybody know where i should look for such an item?
i've already checked demon tweeks.
budget around £100.
and it has to look nice too, pref black so that it doesn't jar too...
there's two left and i'm probably seconds away from rounding them completely :rolleyes:
how easy is it to snap the engine cover off anyway? might be my only option the way things are going...
whose genius idea was it to put the brake fluid reservoir in a completely inaccessible place :mad:
seems i can't find the spanner to unlock the centre caps of my alloys.
not sure if i ever had one but as the tyres have been changed several times now it could have vanished long ago.
long and short of it i need to source a replacement asap, can i get it from any renault dealer or would they...
was listening to music for half an hour with the engine off (fan was going as well, d'oh!) and the battery went flat! had to call the AA to jump start me :o
he says i should get a new battery. just wondering where's best to buy and how much it will be?
and yes i have searched! no matches!
it sounds like a good thing cos the people who talk about it have very shiny cars!
thinking i wanna get mine a going over before the winter sets in. also for another car (evo) - wilts/somerset area
ok, phoned up today to tell them about my new exhaust.
as usual, got the "sunday staff" i.e. some pleb in timbuktoo.
they have charged me an additional premium, but said that they won't pay for the modification.
i presume this means that if i have an accident and the exhaust needs...
