They are designed to work with OEM suspension spring set up, or any kit that uses stock strut tops to connect to the car.
If you have b14s you will need to find a different nut to attach it to the tops.
You can get the front shocks rebuilt (pricey), but the rears are a full replacement and are no longer being sold by Renault.
Might be worth just getting a set of good coilovers if it does end up needing shocks.
Keep the Original stuff in the shed though
I would still say something has come loose if it's not working. The yellow connector is the one that controls the steering wheel controls. Maybe check nothing has come loose on that part.
Is the steering wheel controls registering any type of function?
Cleaned the car for the third time this year.
The ceramic coating has completely wore off, but to be fair I did not keep the car clean at all, and only did one coat of coating.
I just used regular autoglym this time.
Bumpstop total length 8.5cm
Dust cover from top to bottom 30cm
white bit on the top of dust cover to top of black bit on the dust cover 2cm
top of white bit to the top of the bump stop .94cm so the bottom of the bumpstop is 9.5cm from the top of the dust boot or 7.5cm down from...
I was always a bit interested to see if the standard rear bump stops would need trimming when paired with the bilstein b14s. I bought some second hand rear dust boots and bump stops to butcher if needed in this experiment.
I first had to try and figure out how to remove the bump...
guess its lots of minor update time.
I have been neglecting the car little for the past few months as I try to get things done around the house with Covid meaning we work from home for the most part and being able to see tradies when they say they will arrive at 8am then show up at 11am...
Performance mod update
Did go for a good thrash around in the rain Friday night and Saturday morning.
I really enjoy the front end sliding around a little bit and then gripping while wheel spinning on full power. Had so much fun
I was then bored one day and wanted to clean my MAP sensor as I do not think it would have been before.
I do have that metal bracket thing that holds it in place but thought it was crooked so took it off.
The MAP sensor came out so easily and it was covered in a oily film and it was sitting...
Fairly big update time.
So i decided to keep the car after going through the selling and wanting something else phase with four doors
This is going back a little while but I received a lovely package from Brakes Direct, and they even played along with my special request.
It is TRW 1 liter...
Since installing the Bilsteins and lowering the car the small amount i did, i could no longer get my jack underneath the car and had to resort to using a small jack to get the car high enough for me to use the bigger jack. I was annoying to say the least.
I did not want to get a slim jack as...
I decided to go for a dawn run on the great ocean road with a friend to see how i feel about the new ball joints and superpro bushes.
The front of the car feel very solid and planted and feels so much more tighter than before and seems to take big bumps in the road a lot better
It is hard to...
Time for a update.
With some leave coming up from work, i planned to get the ball joints and superpro bush installed during this time with Auto Paris in Box Hill. They said they could do it when i asked them late December last year and i would get in contact with them once i had leave sorted...
I was thinking to give actual detailed reviews of the products i have placed onto the car
I have never really been pedantic regarding how clean the car is due to it being black and dirt seeming to stick to it like glue all the time. I daily this car and it will sit...
