Wondering if anyone can help me out with my Clio I recently purchased. Looking at the ride height I think it has been lowered. I think it is on lowering springs with everything else standard but not 100% sure. It's a Cup which I know sits slightly lower than the non cup but it looks like it has...
I am on the fence whether to buy Clio III 197 or 200. Is there any difference in suspension setup between these two? I read the facelifted one should be a bit softer. Is it true? Is it a noticeable difference? Is there anyone, who has driven both, and could compare them? Thank you!
Recently took my 2009 197 out of storage after 3 years and am doing a bit of a fix-up project (120,000km's)!
I've noticed the following issues so far and haven't been able to confirm the causes yet (although I have yet to pull everything apart, which I'll do over the Xmas break).
Might sound like a noob, but need advice on removing the rear dampers..
So my rear dampers are on the way out and have some CUP replacements. I gave it a go at the weekend but the 16mm nuts wont budge off the top mounts. I am aware you need to keep the damper still, any ideas?
I will give it...
I bought a non cup 197 clio that i want to use for sprints, hillclimbs and trackdays.
What is the best thing to do with the suspension on a budget?
I don't think I can stretch to coilovers atm.
Am I better getting springs / cup springs / just leaving it for best handling?
Thanks in advance!
I'm sure this has been asked a load of times...
I know my os swivel joint has got quite a bit of movement in it (wheel moves side to side when in the air) i did think it was ball joint but been told it's swivel. The car seems to torque steer ALOT & dives left under hard braking... Will a new...
Hello, I'm looking to change my shocks/springs to non-cup and need some information on the colour markings.
The 197 buyer's guide has great info on 197s but I can't seem to find info on 200s.
As far as I can gather the spring markings are:
197 non-cup front: blue/green
197 non-cup rear...
Hi All, as per the post title. Has anyone come up with a solution to tame the awful damping of the Cup set up, on a 200?
I'm now 1500 miles into my ownership, the last 300 miles being on the usual poor quality tarmac and undulating roller coaster of British B roads. I cannot fault the 200 in...
