clutch

hello i am having a problem with my clutch on my 08 laguna when the clutch is not in use ie motorway driving when i go to use the clutch it goes to the floor i have replaced the master cylinder there is no fluid leaking and it happened again i am left scratching my head any help or advice would be a real help

clutch

With hydraulic clutch issues the most orthodox way to approach the problem would be to bleed the system and understand if that delivers a temporary improvement? Also for it to only be an issue on the motorway possibly indicates a result of heat into the slave cylinder which is not apparent when in town and the system is being constantly used.

New Twingo GT

Do we know whether the new Twingo GT will be available with the EDC automatic transmission in the UK? And if so will it be 6-speed as opposed to the 5-speed manual? I understand the option is now available abroad. Would make a great combination!

megane

I have a RenaultSport GT nav 2016. I am eagerly awiating the test drive and release of the RS I believe in September??? but just a little tiny design flaw, obviously mine is automatic and i realise that Renault is a French company and they drive on the wrong side of the road, but didn't it occur to anyone to put the gear display on the RIGHT side of the lever so it is not blocked from view by the gearlever. Petty??? yes but it all helps cheers

The gear change position is also shown in the instrument display but it's a good point and one that we will feed back

MK3 tyre size

Hi, my megane rs250 come with original tyre size 235/40/18. Now time to change the tyre. Tyre shop doesn't have 235/40/18 in stock. He offer me to take 235/45/18. Original size equivalent to 25.4 " in diameter, while new size would be 26.3". Which is increase 0.9" or 3.5% from original size. Is this new tyre diameter within acceptable range? . Seek your opinion sir, thank you.
