There is a noise when I press the clutch just a tiny bit, and if I'm driving along and hold clutch down I can hear noises,
No point in trying to pretend the bearing isn't guffed,
The clutch isn't slipping, how long does the bearing last when it starts failing?
Is it wise to keep using the...
I nust started getting a similar noise at 3500 to 4000 revs only appears between thoese revs,
And only when driving.
It started after all 4 mounts were replaced, I replaced the mounts because my centre box had small cracks on both sides where pipe meets box, had them welded and replaced the...
I know this is an old post but I thought I'd comment for people searching at a later date..
Clio mk2 and mk3 gearboxes aren't the most reliable things but like a lot of things it's blew out of proportion but angry people ranting...
Bad maintenance and bad driving is the problem....
I know it's old post..
But I'll add to it,
My 197 came with normal lights and my ex boyfriend fitted a set of xenon headlights to the car
they work perfectly and they auto height adjust.
At first they could be adjusted with the scroll button the normal lights used but he changed them to auto...
That's a joke £350 even the rs one at £100
Is too much,
I bought richbrook ones in the early 00s basically the same solid polished balls with the numbers engraved and ones with the cutout and plastic insert
they were 20 - 40
If they even charged 50 they would sell alot.
Usually when i do any oil change I use an oil pump I have,
Done the 197 today and took 15 mins,
Took 5.1l of oil so reckon I got nearly all of old oil, took black induction pipe off and changing oil filter was a breeze,
Spark plugs were a lot easier than my 172..
Going to do gearbox oil...
Never understood the big deal with rwd, my daily is rwd and yeah in snow and rain it's fun to get the back end out and every so often a childish donut or burnout gives me a chuckle but I don't see the big deal over fwd,
I had a awd tt and I hated it, felt heavy and clumsy quick in a straight...
I have both, well my 172 is a turbo, i also have a ph1 225 with a r26 box,
I bought the 197 because after the 172 got boost and the supporting mods it's was as useable day to day, the harsh ride and drone at 70 plus it breaks every 5 mins, the 197 is just as much fun as a normal 1*2 but it's...
Thanks for detailed replys guys,
I just bought 2 pilot sports, and stuck them on the back,
I would much rather my car oversteered than under, it's harder to deal with,
I enjoy the lift off oversteer I get from my clios,
I dont think the difference in a 225 to a 215 would give the...
