Re: My car won't start

Hello there.....usually the starter motor gets a pulse on the activation lead ( this lead activates/operates the starter solenoid) and then the starter motor turns. Can you check to see if your starter motor is turning. On manual transmissions one has to press the clutch pedal before pressing the st...

Re: CC Auto problem.

A youtube video shows the valve body of the dp4 al4 gearbox being repaired and was the result of a "check gearbox" error.

Re: Window jammed

Hello..a few years ago I had a similar problem and it turned out the temic unit was faulty.The actual winder motor was ok. I tested the motor by using the + and - leads of a battery charger.

Re: aircon low pressure port

Normally there are two air con pipes attached to the air con compressor pump. One is bigger than the other. The bigger pipe is normally the low pressure pipe. Follow the bigger pipe back from the pump and you should be able to locate the low pressure nozzle ( port) on this pipe.

hello there...If you wish I could post a few pages from a manual describing how to remove a subframe from a megane2 for years 2002 to 2005. Not sure about the procedure for a 2008 megane2 but it should be roughly similar. If you get to the stage of getting the frame off its recommended to get the ol...

Re: Stuck open window

Hello there.....This happened to me on the same window....The control module ( aka the temic unit) was faulty. I am assuming this is the same situation with you. To access this you will need to to take the insides off the door. I managed to remove this temic unit and was left with a bare window moto...

This might be the source of the noise. Unlike...
