    Hello everyone,

    I thought I would introduce myself.....After owning a Clio Williams back in 2007 I felt the urge to get back into the French hot hatch seen (although I regret selling the Williams now!)

    Bought this Racing Blue 197 a few weeks ago, needs a few jobs doing but slowly getting round to them. So far 2 x new tyres, new interior mats and standard cat put back on. Need to get it remapped now. Not sure if it has made it's appearance on here?

    One thing that worries me is a strange noise from the engine, hard to explain but not sure if it's normal so will get a video tomorrow. Also, front washers were working fine the other day but now it just pours all over the front driver wheel, am guessing I will have to remove the wheel and arch liner to check the problem?

    Welcome aboard Rowan and hope you and the new steed have alot of fun together !

    I'm sure if you get a decent video up of the engine noise someone will be able to diagnose it.....

    Enjoy the car; and the forum :smile:

    Welcome in mate. Washer sounds like blocked/loose/cracked hose.
