    Brakes not working on cold start!

    Over the past couple of days when I start my car in the morning to go to work or after work my brakes dont seem to work. After I pump them about ten times they seem to gradually feel better and then they feel normal. They come back pretty quickly, sometimes before I reach the end of our side...

    Autoleads question. Yes, I've used search..

    Ok after 2 trips to Halfords (who don't know their arse from their elbow) and searching through here I still can't come to a conclusion on which Autoleads harness I need to use my steering wheel remote with my new Pioneer headunit. Mine's a 53 plate 172 Cup. :P Please advise. <3

    Anybody know the easiest way of feeding a cable behind the centre console in a 172 Cup? I'm thinking of hard wiring a sat nav charger cable to the cigarette lighter and want the other end to come out on top of the dash (in the tray thing with the rubber mat (after I've drilled a hole for it))...

    Changing 172 Cup springs. Advice?

    Hi guys, I am hoping to replace both front springs on my Cup without spring compressors, I beleive it's possible.. I also assume that this is also true when swapping for OE springs (like I am going to do) as well as lowering springs. Can someone explain to me why it's possible to get away with...

    172 Cup front springs

    Looks like I'm in the market for a pair of front springs for the Cup. I'll probably opt for OE parts. I don't really want to lower it and I ain't got coilover money. What can I expect to pay for a set of front springs from Renault? Anyone got any advice on where I should buy from if not...

    I've found the CTR ariel's successor

    A short while ago I was looking around for pictures of the CTR ariel on Clio 1*2s. Since everyone was fitting them I thought it would be a nice subtle upgrade considering the standard ariels are horrendous looking! However I eventually stumbled upon this picture which shows how they do not fit...

    Just test drove a 197 - My two cents.

    Yea, so I thought I'd call in Renault just on the off-chance they'd have one in, and they did. Had a sit inside, then asked for a test drive. He took a few details off me and off we went, my brother jumped in the back so we were 3 up. First things that I noticed were that the steering is...
