Does anyone know what tool I can use to remove the glow plugs from a 2004 Clio DCi?
I've tried long reach sockets and none seem to fit in the gap renault leave to get them out. Is there a special tool I need? If so, where can I get one from?
Any help appreciated.

Thanks to all those who helped me choose the products and offered advice on the actual PC'ing, especially Rich.
Here are a couple of pics taken after the polish.
Also, is it worth putting another layer of wax on in a few weeks or will it make no difference?
I need to PC my car - 2 coats of polish and 1 of wax. Spending a bit of time on the 1st polish to get out swirl marks.
Roughly how long will this take, including preparation (washing and taping black bits)? I have a golf mk4, it's not a Clio.
Just need to know if I need 1 or 2 days off...
Hope someone can help. I've been meaning to sort the swirl marks on my R32 for ages now, and I'm going to actually do it now.
Here's what I've got to try and sort the problem out:
PC polisher with green, blue and orange pads
Meguiars 16 waxI've had these ages, and am...
We've now got a dci for the missus, so my 16v is just sitting not getting used. The insurance and tax will expire soon, and I don't know what to do, choices are:
Declare it off-road and strip it to use for track days (problem here is I need to somehow get it to tracks)
Sell it, but I doubt...
I need to throw out my old Dlink wireless router and get a newer one. Any recommendations? It's for home use, I can spend up to £100, and would like to get a PCI or PCMCIA card included as well for that price.
The clutch thrust bearing on my valver broke last night leaving me gearless. :banghead:
Now is it worth getting a new clutch fitted (which I believe will include the thrust bearing), or just get the bearing replaced? The clutch was last changed 32,000 miles ago.
Also, any ideas on how much...
I want a selection of photos to randomly show on the front page.
They must be good, professional looking photos, of events/shows/etc, anywhere where there is a group of Clio's in the shot. Any striking or unusual shots would be preferable, eg. the lineup of Clio's on the starting line of...
Well I thought Id give the PC a go today on the 16v, and because of the crap weather I decided Id just try it on the bonnet, so this is what it had:
1. Meguiars #83
2. Meguiars #80
3. Meguiars #23 wax
First impressions are the PC makes waxing easy. It still takes time though - its not...

For the 2nd time this year Ive got a letter from the DVLA telling me my 172 isnt taxed, it was recorded as being on the road, and to pay the £300 fine.
Nowhere is there any information on what to do if theyve got it wrong. It just talks about my offence, and how much theyll fine me if I...

This obviously slows the forum down.
We are going to remove any avatars over 50kb in size, and as theres so many, the mods cannot send a PM to each and everyone telling, so if your avatar suddenly disappears, you know...
