laguna 3 2.0 diesel 180bhp

Hello Ben, The engine idle speed will be dictated by a number of factors and should not be independently adjusted. If in doubt have a specialist review the operation. Kind regards,

Megane 225 f1

Hi all, I’ve recently brought a Megane 225 f1, I’m getting a burning rubber smell on a hill start and when I put my foot down, I think it’s the clutch but it is not slipping!? Any advice would be great, cheers, jay

Megane 225 f1

Hello Jay, Its quite difficult to offer a strong opinion on this question but it could be influenced by your hill start technique. The engine is powerful enough not to require a lot of RPM at low speed. Kind regards,

TPMS Megane 3

I bought my 2015 Cup-S 2 weeks ago. The first few days were fine, then the weather temperature dropped. Now I’ve discovered that my wheels were swapped front to back and I’m getting tpms warnings ‘Adjust tyre pressure’ - no amount of ensuring the correct tyre pressures are present and ‘Learning TP initiated’ will clear the warming. Does it have to go to a Renault dealer to reinitialise the system or can I do it myself?

TPMS Megane 3

Hello Peter, You should be able to perform a reset, holding the button for a while.. like a very long press. If it doesn’t work then a dealer visit is recommended. Kind regards,

Clio Trophy

I have a 2017 RS Trophy, the led headlamps do not have manual levelling, presume they are auto levelling. However the 2018 versions have manual levelling, can explain why. Thanks Steve

Clio Trophy

Hello Steve, Due to a number of factors from time to time the specification of the cars will evolve, this could be for technical, commercial or supplier issues. Generally these decisions will be considered centrally and applied directly at the factory with the region adjusting their local point of sale information. Kind regards,

Renault Clio RS200 EDC Audio Issue

Hi, I have recently come across an issue with my audio. For some reason when starting up the car after it working fine a few hours before, nothing would play through the speakers. I tried the Radio and Bluetooth but nothing, adjusting the volume does nothing and I have also done a reset and also updated the system, but the issue still persists. Any ideas?
