    Anti-Roll Bar Sizes

    So I have been doing some research, as I want to change my front ARB bushes for Powerflex ones (exhaust manifold is being replaced, so makes sense while it's apart). I saw in an old thread that the sizes are as below: Pre May 2009 (197 Cup & Non-Cup): 20mm Post May 2009 (200 Non-Cup): 20.5mm...

    Lower Engine Mount Part Numbers

    A while ago, I put a Powerflex insert in my lower engine mount. It's improved things a lot, but I noticed that the front bush was also split, so I have been meaning to get round to replacing the whole thing. Do people just use genuine Renault ones, or are there any decent aftermarket...

    Ktec Induction Kit Favour?!

    Has anyone ever measured the dimensions of the Ktec induction kit? If not, could someone? What are the dimensions of the cone filter? Also, what are the intake hose/air filter diameter? I had planned on fitting an R3 air box, but my job has evaporated unfortunately, so looking to come up with...

    The Definitive Exhaust Manifold Thread

    Okay, so I know this has come up a lot but, as my manifold is blowing and I have been looking through the options, I wanted to try and compile as much information into one thread that will, hopefully at least, be a useful resource for anyone looking to solve this common 197/200 problem, or...

    Anyone Running a Lithium Battery on a Daily?

    As above? I've been thinking about relocating my battery in order to fit an R3 Maxi airbox and, as I am going to all that effort, I wondered about changing to a lithium battery, maybe like this one...

    R3 Maxi Airbox Fitment/Header Tank Relocation?

    I was looking through a thread about fitting Cup racer suspension bits, and noticed this: I have the same R3 Maxi airbox to go on my car, so was wondering what header tank had been used above? Anyone happen to recognise it? It looks fairly neat. On most R3s I've seen, the factory header tank...

    Will 200 Cup Shocks fit my 197?

    I know the later ones have a different top mount, but will an early one fit? I was about to order these: https://www.renaultpartsdirect.co.uk/parts/steering-suspension/renault-clio-197-cup-front-shock-absorber/ But noticed these...

    Top Mounts - OEM and alternatives

    I'm looking to change the front dampers on my 197, as they look more than a bit past it. It makes sense to do the top mounts at the same time obviously, so I was wondering what people's experiences are? It's a road car and I will be fitting new OEM dampers, so I don't think anything adjustable...

    My RB 197

    Not sure how much of a project this is, but thought I would put something on here. Bought it last August as I needed a new daily. I wasn't particularly in need of another hot hatch, but I was bored of the dreary Vectra estate that had been performing tow car duties for a while, and it what it's...

    Drive shaft?

    Ok, got a bit of an issue with my 197 and wanted some advice... I'm getting a vibration through the car under acceleration, from around 45-70mph. It seems worse if you're in a higher gear when the engine is labouring more. If you sit at a steady speed in that range, it's not nearly so severe...

    Aftermarket Head Unit Fitting

    Am I missing an obvious trick here? I've just attempted to fit an aftermarket head unit into my car and, thanks to the 'box' that it effectively sits in behind the dash, there isn't any room for the wiring? I bought an adaptor so that the steering column controls still work, but there doesn't...

    Engine/Gearbox Mounts

    Apologies, I suspect this has been asked quite a few times, but I have been searching through some old threads and not really found a definitive answer. I'm pretty new to 197s, so not sure on the engine/gearbox mount arrangement. My car feels like it has a bit of movement in the mounts, so I'd...

    Hello

    Thought I would introduce myself. Have been a member over on ClioSport.net for a few years, but thought I would sign up here, as I have just returned to Clio ownership with an RB 197. Not my first R.S. as had a 172 Cup and a Megane 265 in the past. Currently also own a couple of 90s Escort...
