Re: Balancing of wheels by special machine when wheels are in car, and a wheel can not be balance

My thinking was that as the diameter of the driveshafts and even CV joints is tiny compared to the diameter of a wheel, then there would need to be huge amount of imbalance or movement for it to feel anything like as bad as an unbalanced wheel. If it was me, the next thing I'd do is to jack the fron...

Re: Balancing of wheels by special machine when wheels are in car, and a wheel can not be balance

While the wheel is spinning using the on-car balancing machine, can you watch the driveshaft, cv, hubs etc. to see if you can see anything wobbling?
Is there any sign that the driveshaft could be bent slightly?

Re: Engine wont start 1.9 DCI 120hp

Hi,
You can either spend many weeks of your life trying to guess what is wrong, or you can buy a Renault Can Clip diagnostic box and a suitable laptop to run the software, and it will tell you exactly why your car isn't starting.

Re: Cannot lock the car!

If you are sitting in the car and press the central locking button on the dash, does that work?

Re: My Renault Megane II 1.9dci 2006 engine is turning over nicely but not starting, engine light does not come.

Well realistically this could be something as simple as you have run out of fuel, or as complex as total injection system failure. The correct thing to do is to get the codes read from the onboard computers using the proper Renault Can Clip software and this will tell you what is wrong. The other ap...

Re: Confusing warning alerts and complete engine shut down

I've just checked the official Renault Workshop manual, and the error message "Injector Problem" isn't even listed as an available warning message on the 1.9DCi F9Q engine.
Sorry, but I don't think I can be of any more help.

Re: Confusing warning alerts and complete engine shut down

Can I check please, does your car definitely say 'injector problem' or does it actually say 'check injection'? The reason I ask is that 'check injection' covers much more than just the injectors. For example I have had 'check injection' come up caused by a bad connection between the throttle pedal p...

Re: Complete engine shut down while driving

Your original problem - I noticed a flat spot with the accelerator, sometimes when pulling away there was no response but after several quick pumps it would respond. sounds like this problem that several of us have had over the years with a faulty brake pedal switch . Yes, I know, you are probably a...

Re: Codes and warning message

I had a DF038 and a couple of other voltage related messages at the same time when I had a flat battery once.
I charged the battery, cleared the codes and it has been fine ever since.
Are your battery and all the main power and earth connections in good condition?

Re: Spring broken

Probably not. The convertible definitely has different springs to all other variants. Just put your registration number into eurocarparts and see what part numbers it gives for replacements. Then get a registration number of a car with the same year but the other body type off Autotrader, and put th...

Re: Megane II 1.9 dci smoking white

Yes. If brake fluid leaks from a brake master cylinder into the vacuum servo, then you can get clouds of white smoke coming out of the exhaust.

Re: a pillar / windscreen trim removal mk 2 megane cc

After you have removed the trim, then prise out all the plastic retaining clips from the A pillar. Refit all the plastic clips, one at a time to the trim panel, then align all the trim clip pointed ends with the holes in the A pillar and press the trim panel back into place. Finally refit the one to...

Re: Megane MK11 2009 CC vin sticker

A Mk2 Megane CC shows the VIN number, and then below that are the following weights - 1880 Kg 2850 Kg 1-1060 Kg 2-1000 Kg But I don't think you need it for the MoT as long as you can still read the VIN number at the bottom of the windscreen, as it only has to be in one place. The MoT test manual say...
