I am currently finishing off my Clio 197 to compete in rallies in The Netherlands. However I have a problem with the brakes.
When braking my rear brakes lock up very easily, like I don't even have to brake hard for it to happen. There is already a rear brake bias installed, but when...
I have experienced a few braking issues with the car since I bought it two years ago. After a trackway at Knockhill last week, I fitted 4 new Godspeed G hook discs.
On the way home last night, I was braking gently (as per the running in guidance) but noticed the OSF disc was much hotter than...
Hi, I’m having an issue with my new braided hoses. Removed my old front hoses with the brackets. Fitted my G-ridge hoses with the metal P clip ....but now no matter what I do, as soon as I turn the wheel they move and are rubbing off the inside of my standard wheels.
I’ve refitted the original...
Are these discs on eurocarparts the HC version?
If they are is that a decent price with 45% off? Just over £80 for 2...
I'm hoping for some help before I get my mechanic to look at my car. My handbrake has always been very loose but now doesn't work at all. I pull it all the way up and the car will still roll. Anything I can do myself to fix it?
Many thanks to potential replies
I’m looking for recommendations on brake upgrades for my ‘06 197, front discs and pads (as I believe rears do next to nothing). So far it’s on OEM discs and upgraded pads. Mechanic I know thinks the cup setup is the way to go, agree/disagree?
Car is only for track use. Mods done so...
I've Recently been doing the brakes on my newly purchased 197 cup and for the life of me cant get get the rear brakes to rewind, the caliper is a second had part bought off of eBay. I've taken all of the fittings off(handbrake cable, bleed nipple and brake hose) and It still wont...
So, I've got that old problem of the handbrake being slack and the rear calipers not functioning properly/not returning the cable. Took it to the garage.
I've been told that the calipers and discs need replacing.
Apparently the calipers Renault use can be had in unpainted oem generic form for...
Joined the forum yesterday as I want to get my 197 back to looking and running its best. Unfortunately I have limited knowledge which is why I require some help!
The timing belt and water pump are due for a change, so I need to ideally find a Renault specialist in Nottingham that'll...
I'm getting brake fade much sooner than you would normally expect from an rs with Brembo 4 pots :/
i replaced my my brake fluid,
blead all the brakes,
and cleaned up all the pads.
Pads are 50/60% worn
disks don't look old either.
thinking the disks could be warped a little as when I get...
Its coming to that time where my back disks need replacing i have a clio 197 R27 was wondering if these will be best option for the back http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251474126710?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
I know a few people have shown interest in maybe buying some front discs for their Clio 197/200 from these guys. I took the plunge last week, so thought I'd stick a quick first impressions. I'll post in here at some point in the future to see how they're wearing over time.
Delivery: I went for...
ive had my Clio for 5 years now. Done about 55,000 miles with it all good so far up until a few months ago when I tried braking whilst doing about 125 miles and the the car wouldn't stop as it should.
The brakes initially started working and a second after the pedal went further down...
Hello guys I'm new on here and you can guess I've just bought a clio 197, as just like must guys with new toys I've been looking at all the different things I can buy and do to my little toy. I bought these of eBay last week and they turned up today and the offset seem a lot different to...
Some of you may have seen this on RS.co.uk,
only had my car a week so bare with me... I have noticed at high speeds in the car (77mph max:p) That If i apply the brakes I get some small vibration feeding back to me through the pedal! I don't really notice this at slower speeds...
Just replaced my front pads with ease and moved on to the rears.
Safe to say that didn't go accordingly!!!
The piston seems to be jammed out to and however much pressure, including a vice grip it just will not budge, what could this be due to? Car is in a garage safe and sound up on axel...
I posted a thread about a week ago that I had a high pitch squeak coming from the right front wheel area.
Had the car in to Renault yesterday and they have told me it is just 'wear and tear' and will cost £287 for all the brake pads to be renewed, I hope that includes labour time.
