    Sprint Booster V3 - First impressions

    Instead of creating a new thread I thought I'd resurrect this one. I fitted a sprint booster today and it really improves the driving experience, as Doogle said there's still a delay on the first bit of travel but overall it makes it so much easier to access the power and rev match. I'm still...

    Zen and the Art of Clio Maintenance

    It's not perfect but from some angles like the picture here its hard to see. I may have a professional get the very last bits out but this wasn't bad for a worn plastic hammer and heat gun.

    Zen and the Art of Clio Maintenance

    I think a white van hit my car when parked up recently and the dent was pretty bad, I managed to get most of it out using a plastic hammer and a heat gun, along with a full service, front brake refresh and a much needed wash after that desert rain!

    197/200 Daily Driver, am I an idiot?

    I've been driving a 197 as a daily for around 10 years now. I was thinking about a second car as the miles were creeping up and would've liked to kept it as a weekend and holiday car, which honestly it's more suited for. That being said, 10 years down the line with an average 10 mile round trip...

    Zen and the Art of Clio Maintenance

    I took this pic on the weekend while experimenting with some astrophotography and felt to share it in the forum. It was taken in the Lake District, where the roads are pure motoring heaven.

    Ever seen an R27 from the sky?

    Awesome pic, these are one of the best looking cars ever from a birds eye view.

    Exhaust Wrap for Manifold Flexis?

    Ok cheers guys, doesn't sound too bad then really as I've had the subframe of a few times. Just need to find somewhere local that will swap out the flexis and do a decent job. I suppose as they're flexis even if it's not perfect the manifold should still mate with the exhaust. Sent from my...

    Exhaust Wrap for Manifold Flexis?

    I guess I'll have to soon, I'm just not keen on doing it on the driveway as imagine the manifold bolts will be really tricky to get to. I've also got a full Akra exhaust so losing the precat will be an MOT issue someday, and the Akra is loud enough as it is! If anyone has a any tips on tools I...

    Exhaust Wrap for Manifold Flexis?

    The manifold flexis are almost gone on my car, thankfully there's no leaks yet but the metal mesh is all but gone. Is there some kind of exhaust wrap anyone has used which could cover the flexis and should they break keep the fumes contained? I obviously would like to not have to replace the...

    Rear Beam Bushes

    I recently noticed that the rear beam bushes on my car are starting to split and have some play in them. I was wondering if there is anywhere to buy the original Renault bushes (can't see them on catcar) and if there's any tool which would be suitable for removing them and installing new bushes...

    Broken Down!

    I just did the quick access fix to swap the pump, did a neat job though tbf so don't feel I've butchered it, just saved a lot of time and made future repairs a lot easier. It does seem my fuel level is staying quite high but the tank was filled 2 days prior to the pump going and it's only been...

    Broken Down!

    Twas the pump, she's back up and running and sounding quite ferocious. Thanks again for the help everyone. p.s If you need to buy a tow eye, don't buy an aftermarket one like this, they're not kind to your bumper!

    Broken Down!

    It was starting with easy start and no noise from the pump. I'll check the relay first but do think it most likely is the pump. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Broken Down!

    I haven't heard of it before myself but having a search of the forum there's a few out there. A touch under 70k/12 years old. Hopefully sorted next week... It was starting with easy start and no noise from the pump. I'll check the relay first but do think it most likely is the pump

    Fuel Pump needs replacing, go uprated?

    I'm @ ~70K so half that but the cars almost 12 years old so not far off age wise. Incidentally it was run to the low fuel level warning for the first time in a while recently, which may have given it the kiss of death. It's only ever been run on V-Power from 4K- 70k, apart from when I tried a...

    Fuel Pump needs replacing, go uprated?

    Thanks for the link. I brimmed the tank 2 days ago yet it only showed as 3/4 full on the gauge so think it is def related to the pump/level sensor but will have another look tonight. I need to brush up on my electronic diag skills but will check the pressure at the rail like foxspeed suggested...

    Fuel Pump needs replacing, go uprated?

    Yeah I had a think about it and it's unnecessary, I've ordered one up from Renault and should have it swapped next week. I'm not looking forward to dropping the tank but may just do a bit of weight saving to get the pump out from the top. It's the first time the cars let me down in almost 10...

    Fuel Pump needs replacing, go uprated?

    It looks like my fuel pump has gone, just wondering if it's worth going for an uprated walbro while I'm there? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Broken Down!

    So it looks like the fuel pump, which makes sense as I brimmed it the other day and the guage only went to 3/4. Will swap on weekend and confirm. :) Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Broken Down!

    Cleaned up the TDC sensor (which was filthy) while waiting for RAC but still no joy, now getting steering not locked message which I know can be related to camshaft sensor.
