    200T/220T buying advice

    I’m on the lookout for one of the above but I’m looking for a bit advice first. The car will be used on the road and track so won’t be too extreme but also won’t be standard. Is there any difference in the physical engine spec between the 200 and the 200? I know about the steering, suspension...

    Brembo calipers rebuild and paint

    Can anyone give some suggestions on where to get this done. I have a set of Brembo calipers that I would like powder coating.

    Removing rear light cluster

    Yeah I know, it’s out of date. I did have a 197 but have a non sport mk4 now. I tried updating on a phone but I must have to log in on a desktop to do it.

    Removing rear light cluster

    Is it simply a case of removing the 2 Torx screws on the inside then pulling backwards? I’ve undone the screws but the light unit still feels like it’s attached. When I pull I feel like I’m putting far too much force into it just to remove a light.

    Clio 3 (2011) 1.2 16v engine fail

    There’s always the possibility of an object getting stuck and causing this. My first thing to check would be pulleys and tensioners. Although the belt is fine, it could be one of these that has caused the issue.

    Front indicators

    I am talking about that very style of bulb but for a 200t (mk4) so they have a different bulb size in the front, PY24W.

    Front indicators

    Has anyone changed their bulbs for silver or LED items? Struggling to find silver ones other than Phillips although they still have a lot of orange on them. I’d go for LED if anyone can recommend some that don’t show up an error code. Thanks

    Advice and opinions needed

    If her car is repaired then can she deny knowledge of the accident? Or did you open the letter, ring the insurance, then tell them all about it?

    Poor accident repair. Advice wanted

    Following a non fault accident you should be left in the same position as you were in prior to the accident so as said keep asking until it's sorted.
