    Hi guys, got a bit of a weird issue with my Clio right now. It's an 07 1.2 16v Campus. So, it all started when I was in 4th gear at a high rpm (around 5ish). After this it did not want to go up anymore revs and the check engine light started flashing at me. Pulled over and gave it a look over...

    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!

    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?
