Re: low battery warning

I meant that there can be corrosion damage to the UPC if the wheel arch liner let's spray in. This is easy - either fix the visible damage or replace the block. This is what garages usually do. If it is OK, then significant expertise will be needed to check the functions of the individual signals. T...

Re: Clutch not returning to position / bleeding the clutch

This part looks like a clutch damper (sometimes called clutch resonator, perhaps due to imperfect translation from French), but in the workshop manual it's called "piping with filter" (unclear whether they meant a sediment filter or vibration filter). The damper's only purpose is to reduce...

Re: Megane II 1.4i Firing issues

My guess is that the buzzing noise is either solenoids or the stepper motor on the throttle. When the ECU is unsure about throttle position, it attempts to close it. A problem with the battery voltage may trigger such a behaviour. Some electrical buzzing is usually heard under the bonnet just before...

Re: Megane II 1.4i Firing issues

The next time this happens check the voltage of the battery. It may be loosing charge overnight, but then quickly charges once the engine has started. Check, clean and protect with silicone or other grease the terminals and any associated contacts. I think the problem is somewhere around the battery.

Easy Fix for Clicking Door Strap/Retainer

The driver's door was clicking loudly. Upon some research I found that this is often caused by the retainer shifting up or down in its rollers. So, looked into mine - it was in the low position. Apart from this, everything looked good. I found a cheap solution not involving taking off the door panel...

Re: Megane III inc. R.S.250 cabin filter replacement guide

The same job again - took just over an hour, and bruises were avoided by padding the door sill with sheet foam. It is still a pig of a job... The first step is to remove three pieces of plastic: pull the kick panel near the clutch pedal, pull the panel near the door with the airbag switch on it, the...

Re: Megane 225. Acceleration problem

With a fuelling problem there will be abnormal trim values on OBD... You may also look at the boost pressure live readings, also on OBD. One more option is the dephaser stuck in the retarded position. If the case, then it may rattle on startup or may be just stuck. Hi Bob there isn't no fault codes ...

Re: Keycard battery life - 24 hrs

It is safe to remove the battery from the card, no programming required after.

Re: Clutch pedal sensor

Yes, the wires are short - design fault. They break because of it. A good idea is to extend them a bit.

Re: Gearbox oil

The oils are listed in the Parts section of the forum. They are thinner than for many other cars. The oil is added to the box though the filling hole until it starts flowing out from the same hole. I usually trace a pvc tube there from the space under the bonnet, choose the largest diameter to make ...

Re: The mother of Window Faults

The motor was making a clicking noise because one of power pins in the connector to the regulator was corroded and burnt. As I understand, it attempts to operate, but then looses the contact as the pin overheats. It can be also the connector between the door and A-pillar. The clicking stopped probab...

These two incidents involve different computers, both connected to the same UPC and battery. If there are no warning lights on the dash, then you have found a dangerous design fault, yet an...
