    recent new clutch +engine and gearbox mounts - now whines

    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. Thanks

    Had clutch replaced, under hard acceleration - noisy rumbly and slight rock/knocking?

    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...

    Clio 172 Speedo sensor / cable

    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..

    Which clutch...

    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...

    mot failure - front coil spring incomplete

    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...

    any tips for getting those annoying torx screws off the engine cover

    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:
