    Wheres good for non sport models?

    This forum seems to not cater for the owners of regular models and leans heavily, if not somewhat exclusively for 172/182/192/rs200 owners. Can any recommend a good forum for owners of the regular models?

    MK3 Clio TCE performance exhaust

    There's quite a few threads already but most of them seem to be from a couple years back now unfortunately. I was looking to see where I can get a good exhaust that's a bit more free flowing for the TCE.

    Eibach on a non-sport

    Sorry to be that guy to make another lowering spring thread but I'm torn between the prolines and sportlines for my 1.2. If anyone has any experience with either of the two or any photos of how the car sits with them then that would be really appreciated 🙂

    Steering squeak driving me insane

    Ever since I bought my 1.2 it's had this creak/squeak from the steering, especially at low speeds. It's finally gotten to me so I've had a look and it appears to be coming from somewhere on the rack, possibly around where it comes through the bulkhead. I attached a video and any ideas or advice...

    1.2 16v no drive in any gears

    Drove my Clio to work earlier and parked it up outside. Got back in it after finishing work and noticed a strange clonking noise coming from the engine bay. Checked it out but couldn't see anything so decided to drive home carefully. I put it in gear and went to move forwards to find that I...

    Rear springs/ shocks to coilovers on mk2

    I'm a bit of a novice with cars, but it's what I love and I'm still learning so please forgive my idiocy I'm wondering if, on my MK2 Clio, I could replace the rear shock absorber and spring set up with coilovers? I know coilovers can be fitted to the front, but so far all I can see online is of...

    Low budget 1.2 project

    Thought I'd start a project thread to show the progress on tidying up Black Phillip (my little 1.2). This will be done on a budget as I have other commitments requiring most of my money so I'll be looking to start making small changes and improvements to do three things; 1) keep it running well...

    Clio 1.2 TCE, Misfiring When Warm

    First of all, let me just say that I love this car, although it is a pain in the a**. Just to give you a bit of background, I bought my 2009 Clio (the 1.2 TCE model) back in March, with 31,000 miles on the clock. The check engine light came on the day after I bought it but went out as I was...

    Mk4 steering in a mk3?

    Hi guys! Just wondering if anyone could help me or give me a little advice. Would a mk4 clio steering wheel fit in a mk3 clio? Have seen a few cheap mk4 steerings and would benefit from a leather one instead of the crappy mk3-non leather steering. TIA!

    Looking at buying a 1.2/1.4 clio mk3 and want to change the exhaust. I am not concerned about perforance just the noise.

    Front os side light and rear os tail light out at the same time.

    I installed some new cool white sidelights into my 2003 Clio a week ago. All was working well, but now, the front right has gone out, along with the rear right. I'm guessing a fuse? Where is this located? Under the bonnet, or in the dash? Also, why would these new lights have blown a fuse?

    TCe 100 fuel injectors

    Hi all, new to forum, looking for some advice. I own a Clio mk3.5 1.2 TCE 100. I like the engine, it's nice and revvy for a turbo car, but seems lack throttle response. I'm thinking of getting a remap done, but I've heard doing this on the standard injectors will result in little/no power gains...

    Engine flooded?

    Just been to start it up and nothing :L Starter is turning the engine over and I can hear the fuel pump priming, also I've plugged in the OBD reader and there's no codes being thrown up so i'm assuming it's not the coils (though I haven't pulled the plugs). The only thing I can see from the data...

    My 1.2 Extreme project.

    Bought this Clio < 3 weeks ago. Really wanted a sport but can't get insured, so I'm going to modify my 1.2 to my taste :) When I bought it, it had 13" steels with broken ghastly wheel trims. First thing I did was buy some trims, made it look 10x better. I also put some fli coaxial door...

    Clio Extreme to 172 conversion.
