    BLoody hell mate - what a way to start a progress thread!

    Got a feeling this is going to be a BUSY thread!!!

    Just had a quick blast in the car this morning. Noticed when I closed the door to lock it there was a really prominent rattle coming from the rear wheel arch:



    Any idea what this could be?

    A couple of minor updates.

    Currently looking at getting a spare key, made a specific thread asking for advice (http://www.clio197.net/threads/acquiring-a-new-key-card.57911/) but not got any as of yet.

    After noticing one of the number plate lights was damaged while fixing my number plate I ordered a new unit. Arrived today and fitted. Pardon the really dirty car, muddy farm roads do that to a car...

    Old unit lost it's clear cover:

    Haven't really reach out to anyone yet but there are a couple of websites im looking at which claim they can do it. Prices range around the £90 mark.

    Just gave the car a wash after seeing the rear window in the sticker picture. I always like a clean car but it shows up my fairly abused paintwork...

    Lots of little chips and scratches about which I really need to get sorted. Will have access to a bigger garage and more tools in a few weeks so will probably deal with them then, plus paint brake calipers.

    Wait. The Clio197 stickers are interior?! I never checked mine...will have to go and install one shortly I think if that's the case....

    P.S. your paintwork issues are nothing on mine..probably looking at a full respray for a decent finish..:money:

    I think you can get the stickers in both interior and exterior.

    Im not so sure, I have fairly major chips on pretty much every pannel.

    My nearest specialist is around the £110/120 range if I recall correctly so that price seems fair.

    It's a bit misty this morning and both wing mirrors were misted up.

    Turned on the rear window heater to enable to wing mirror heaters and only the passenger side mirror cleared. Wondering if the heater in the drivers side has died, anyone know where to get a replacement? Is it just replacing the glass or the whole wing mirror assembly?

    I've owned 2 Clios and both have done this from time to time. Turning the heaters off and on again has fixed it every time. Did you try that?

    try popping the mirror out and see if there's any wires damaged or disconnected...
