    Wet Day!

    I've been noticing recently, that water has been collecting underneath my drivers seat. Upon further inspection, the drain pipe under the scuttle panel had been bent upwards. Meaning that since i bought the car in March (and god knows how long beforehand), overtime it rained, it was collecting...

    Carbon Lorraine RC5+ Rear Brake Pads

    Hi everyone, I have fitted Carbon Lorraine RC5+ rear brake pads to my Clio 182 and they are a very tight fit! They are so tight that the pads are griping the discs all the time and preventing correct operation of the brakes. It seems the shape of the pad backing plate is not exactly the same...

    Rainsports -v- Winter tyres (Miata owners)

    Well, it's getting high time I prepped Listerine for another winter. As such, I don't really want to run a set of Eagle F1's. The Yokohamas from last year were awful and as much as these are better in every way, I don't think they'll be the best move for winter survival. So, I've got my Enkei...

    heavy rain drainage concern clio 182

    Hi due to the heavy rain this week I was a bit concerned about a swishing noise which sounded like fluid. Thought my car had a swimming pool in it but can't see any signs of water anywhere , is it possible it'd the fuel swishing around the fuel tank I can hear or are my drainage holes blocked...

    Help with a drivetrain problem

    I've had my Clio a while now (not working) finally decided to sort it out. Ok so from square one. I bought the car and when I got home it lost drive, made a grunching noise like it wasn't in gear. Also noticed when I changed gear one of the times on the way home my clutch pedal stuck to the...

    Fitting rain/light sensor to windscreen?

    Do I need a special windscreen for this? My cars had the screen replaced at some point and theres no sensor anymore for the auto lights and wipers. Can I fit a sensor or do I need a specific windscreen? Can't see a new windscreen being cheap just to get that functionality back but I quite like...

    Carbone Lorraine RC6 - Alternative

    Currently have some Carbone Lorraine RC6 pads but after 210 miles with them on, the squeak is driving me insane. What's the next best alternatives which don't squeak or squeak very little? The car will be mainly used for fast road with the odd track day here and there. Thanks in advance Andy

    Carbon Lorraine replacement

    Currently running CL6 and was debating on just getting them again as I find them good. Or trying something else to see how they compare the CL, looking at likes of the Ferodo DS3000 / DS 1.11 or (I know the DS 1.11 are more expensive price but are they worth the extra) or the anyone tried the...

    Windscreen replace - rain sensor problem

    Hi guys, I've managed to get a chip in my windscreen that needs sorting. I've been quoted £75 on insurance to replace it but the woman wasn't sure about rain sensor. Do they replace the fittings as well usually? and the gel?

    Track wheels and Carbon Lorraine pads

    Did one track day at Oulton with Carbon Lorraine pads on my shiny new white speed lines and they were coated with Gtechniq c5 and carlight/collanight (not 100% on the wax) endurance 915 and they have pretty bad staining off the brake dust but the front face where the wheel bolts go through have...

    Coolant draining and engine temp rising

    Hi guys, About a week ago, my girlfriend was driving our 182 and said the STOP light came on. When I had a look at it I realised the coolant reservoir was empty, so I topped it up and everything seemed fine until today when, on the motorway on the way from London to York, the temperature...

    rain/water marks on seats

    Evening all, Are there any products that can remove rain stain marks on light grey cloth seats? I've tried autoglym upholstery shampoo which looks like its worked until it dries, then the stain is back. Don't really want to waste money trying too many products, if I can help it. Any suggestions...
