    Air Intake - What is this Box?

    Does anyone know what this black plastic box is? @EthanMenace has been working on removing bits from the Clio to fit the V6 airbox and when the battery was out we both noticed that the air feed that starts as a hard plastic tube at the left side of the grille and then goes in to the standard...

    Dashboard Display - What Does It Do?

    What does the small car display on the dashboard do? I can see that when I open a door, or the boot, the display changes and indicates something is open. But apart from that I have not see it do much. I was playing Forza 7 the other day and when I was in a Clio 200 the Xbox showed the...

    I had some tyres transferred on to a second set of wheels that I acquired recently. The garage has pointed out that one wheel is slightly bent on the inside of the rim. I will try and get the wheel repaired. I have got a track day booked in two weeks. If I cannot get the wheel repaired in...

    Removing Upper Engine Mount

    I am trying to tidy up my engine bay slightly. The upper engine mount for my car could do with a rub down and respray on some of its edges. This is the mount I am talking about. Can I loosen off the bolts, remove the metal mount without having to support the engine, then leave it out for a...

    Wheel Arch “Bag”

    I had not noticed until today that in the passenger side front arch I have got what looks like a padded black “bag” thing, but in the drivers side front arch there is nothing similar. Can anyone tell me what this is, and if I should have one in the drivers side front arch?

    Fitting Rear Beam Bushes

    I had some purple Powerflex rear beam bushes delivered today. They are massive. I have looked around but cannot seem to find a decent guide on how to fit them. I am hoping this is a job I can do without removing the rear beam, but just dropping the beam when removing the rear dampers? If...

    Coilover Questions

    I have acquired a set of Bilstein B14 coilovers for my Clio which have covered about 6,000 miles on a previous car. I have had a quick look at the equipment and there are no obvious leaks or damage to the seals. I am going to install the coilovers with @EthanMenace on my drive. I have watched...

    Ball Joints

    My car is at the garage today for an MOT. It has just failed on one of the drivers side ball joints. The car does not need to be fixed immediately as I have access to another car. If the work is being done is it worth getting the upper and lower ball joints on both sides replaced? Also...

    What Size is This Screw?

    When I took my wheels off of the Clio yesterday I noticed an ugly screw that I think holds the arch liner to the bottom of the bodywork. Can anyone tell me what size/length etc., etc the screw and washer are so I can order some replacements that will not rust?

    Megane 280 Tyres

    I have had my Megane 280 since January 2020 and the front tyres are looking a bit worn. Has anyone got any good tyre recommendations to fit a 245/35 R19 wheel? I am tempted to go for some Michelin Pilot Sport 4s.

    Clio 200 Tailgate

    Does anyone know if a Clio 197/200 tailgate will fit the back of a Clio 200 with the seats down? I am on the lookout for a new tailgate so I can remove my tailgate with a GT spoiler on it and replace it with a newer tailgate, and eventually a Cup spoiler.

    Remove GT Spolier

    Does anyone know how to remove a GT spoiler? I have got a GT spoiler on my Clio and I just want to take off the spoiler to clean underneath and then put it back on. Between the tailgate and GT spoiler there is a line of green grime that needs a good scrub. Underneath the spoiler at either side...

I was looking through the various categories they had and the searched for Clio 200 Cups. How Many Left suggests that there were only up to 390 Renault Clio 200 Cups registered...

    Wiper Not Reaching Far Enough

    I took the wiper arms off go my Clio 200 a few weeks ago when I cleaned the scuttle drains. I have put the arms back on but now when the wipers are on the drivers side wiper arm does not reach across as far as it did. Basically the arm comes from the down position and then comes within about 7...
