    Car covers

    I’ve put this in the detailing section because I’ve read about car covers which can cause damage to clear coat - nothing major, but I’d rather not mess up my 182! I should add that it’s for outdoor use. Could I ask for recommendations and pointers? What should I look out for in buying a cover?

    Wishbones for 182

    OEM or genuine? Big difference in cost. Keen not to change the ride or handling, but equally don’t want to bankrupt myself!

    Dogbone bushes - which colour?!

    I want to re-bush my 182 dog bone with Powerflex and am wondering which colour to use. I don’t intend taking it on the track, so it’ll be fast road use. I know that black is intended for track, but would there be any benefit to using them anyway?

    Wet left foot

    During a rather quick drive this morning I suffered a wet left foot in my 182... cold water, clear and didn’t really smell of anything. Dribbled out near the footrest, but then tunnel carpet was wet for about a foot behind that. What do we think? Heater matrix or a more general leak?

    Headlamp washer pump location

    My windscreen and rear screen washers are working fine, but the headlamp ones aren’t. I’ve had a search and gather that two pumps are needed. Could someone help me with the location of the one which does the headlamp washers?

    Aircon condenser

    I need to replace the aircon condenser in my 182. An initial search online shows a variety of prices from around £50 to £300+ If you’ve replaced this part which did you choose? And where did you get it from?

    Air conditioning pipe part number query

    The pipe which connects the top of the condenser to the compressor in my 182 has split and needs replacing. Does anyone happen to know the part number for this? (Currently failing to find it on any of the parts websites...)

    Bluetooth connectivity for 182

    I’d like to add Bluetooth connectivity to my 54 plate 182, but I want to retain the original headunit. Ideally I’d like to avoid the FM-transmitter type as I’ve tried a couple and not found them to be very good. Has anyone found a good solution? Ideas, suggestions and recommendations warmly...

    Fred and James’ Clio 182 Racecar Project

    I’ve wanted to start a project thread for a while but progress on the car has been a little of the slow side whilst doing the fabrication work on the shell so there wouldn’t be regular updates. However we have just started to paint it so now there is light at the end of the tunnel so thought it...

    Arctic Blue Clio 182 Project

    I purchased my Clio 182 for £1100 back in November and it's safe to say I've been in love with her ever since.

    My 14yr old Titanium Silver 182

    She's been OTR for the last six months, but now she's back and been treated to an enhancement detail and AutoGlym UHD Wax. Honestly never had the paint looking this good before, very happy with it, only the wheels left to sort now - absolutely battered beyond belief?
