Folding mirrors

Hi. I have purchased a brand new clio on friday. I had automatic electric mirrors. After two days they stoped working. The only way to fold the mirrors is manually. Is there anything what i should press or do. I've tried to do as the book says to put on position F but i can only hear like a click but they won't fold .Thanks a lot

Folding mirrors

The mirrors on the 2016 Clio don't fold automatically when the car is locked. They fold only by turning the toggle switch on the door

197 Team F1 #139

Jeremy, i've just bought number #139 of the F1 Team 197 and would like to keep it going for as long as possible. Its over 80k miles and never missed a service, in real terms, are these engines designed with a shorter shelf life than other more conventional lighter revving lumps? Id like to get a rough idea of what to expect.

197 Team F1 #139

Hi - it's a very reliable engine. We used it for many years in Clio Cup and Formula Renault. Keep up the quality service history!

RS Clio 220 Trophy - Race Mode downshift

Hi. I have just picked up my new 220 trophy. I was under the impression that in Race Mode, the 220 didn't do ANY gear changes. However, although it doesn't change up, it does change down with no input from myself (e.g. when approaching a roundabout). Is this correct that it does this, or do I have a software fault. Also, how do I get hold of the RS Sound effect app which was on the demonstrator I tried, but can't find in the Renault Link store (I have RS monitor)? Regards, Brian

RS Clio 220 Trophy - Race Mode downshift

That's right, it will not change up a gear but, at low revs, it won't let the car stall so it will change down. For the sound effect, have you looked in Services?
