    Car wouldn’t start, but battery and alternator are good?

    Hello, I’m new to this forum. I’ve just bought a 1.1 2008 Renault Clio to get me around while a crash claim I was in gets sorted out. It was off a family friend and was pretty cheap as the clutch was on its way out. Ive drove the car around 4-5 times, it’s not insured untill September but I’ve...

    Removing %&^$((^ trim clips!

    Just bought a 2007 Expression and the boot light appears to have gone AWOL. There's an aperture for it, but no light and fishing around in the hole is too tight for my sausage-like digits. I assume it's either been removed or it's fallen down the back, but no sign of a connector. Trying to get...

    Clio 182 Heater Matrix & Fuses

    I was wondering if a fellow RS enthusiast could help me please? Before going any further I just want to apologise for the long thread and say that I'm competent with Renault Sports and the F4R engine, however as people will sympathise, part of the quirk of owning them is that they can throw a...

    Our clio 2 interior fan speed only works on speed 4 - have pulled out the resistor pack from the blower motor underneath the bonnet and traced it to the thermal fuse being the problem. I shorted it out and all 4 speeds work with it shorted. Was so tempted to solder a wire on , leave it...

    Central locking button inside not working

    Hi, I own a Renault Clio 1.4 16v 02'. Since I bought the car, the central locking button inside the car doesn't do anything, it doesn't even make a noise as if the doors are locking, it's the same story with the key. In short the only way I can lock the car is by manually putting the key in to...

    Clio 172 Cup Immobiliser/ECU/Key issue

    I've seen a few threads like this now so apologies if I'm repeating what others have already posted, but I cant seem to find a solution and they don't 100% relate to the issue I'm currently having.
