Hi I have a three month old ex demo car and have noticed quite quickly it's pulling to the left relatively severely. Having just taken this to a workshop the output from a hunter alignment machine suggetsed the toe was out on both the front wheels. I still have the same issue afterwards and struggling to understand why. Can you send me the toe, camber and caster setup that was used at the factory? I can't work out what else might be causing this issue. Thanks, Ben

Hi Ben, Additionally i do not have the set up information. Please check with a dealer who will know what the ride heights should be when carrying out the check.

Hi! Since the lower control arms are quite unique on Megane RS 225, I don't want to purchase the wrong part for replacement. Could You provide the actual part number for lower control arms (left and right) for Megane RS 225 2004? Thanks!

Hello Martin, I do not have access to part numbers. Please contact a Renault dealer with your chassis no.

Hi Allen, I've just bought a 2015 Clio 200 EDC a couple of weeks ago, and one of the things I discovered immediately was the loose break peddle. To cut a long story short, I live in Ireland and bought the car in the UK. I was never given the chance to test drive the car as the hand over was very rushed. When I drove it away I noticed two things, steering pulling to the left and the loose break pedal. When I called them back they told me 1. they didn't notice the steering and 2. the slight wobble in the break pedal is normal on that car. The cynic in me called B.S. Should there be any give at all? I've asked another question on the steering. Thanks

Hello Lewis, To keep it simple - the brake pedal should function 100% if you feel something is loose - it's clearly not correct. I'd have it checked ASAP.

Hi Allen, My RS 200 EDC is pulling to the left. From chatting with the guys on the forum, this seems to be quite a common problem, or easy to occur on this car. Is there a specific issue here or should I say higher tendency? What could it be? Thanks, Lewis
Lewis Atkinson, 28th Sep 2017
Hello Lewis, When the car pulls to the left is it under acceleration or just normal driving? Additionally is it due to the front tyres getting a little low or due to excessive camber on the road? The steering set up is designed to reward driver input, but sometimes the opposite can feedback. The terrain and application can influence how the steering feels. Are the tyres wearing evenly ? If they are perhaps the toe is correct and its just some feedback from the road or the tyres as they wear? Best,

Hi Is it possible to install the type of Recaro seat in the Clio RS 200 Mk3 into a Mk 4 RS EDC?
LewRS, 2nd Oct 2017
It will need a new subframe. Recaro will be able to advise what base mounting is needed

Hi Jeremy, Can the front and rear wheel arches and side skirts that adorn the R.S. 16 be purchased and fitted to a RS 200 EDC? From the images they look like they sit on top of the standard body. Thanks, Lewis
Lewis Atkinson, 28th Sep 2017
Hi - the R.S. 16 never went into production so the parts were never made apart from the one-off prototype
