Megan Cabrio 1.6 coil spring be careful

Thought I'd get this out there to prevent others from a potential problem I recently ordered and fitted new KYB front shocks, coil springs and top mounts to my 2004 1.6 megane cc. To be sure I got the correct items I first went to the on-line supplier and confirmed part numbers via reg number as usu...

Re: Cc trunk is touching plastic when opened

Sorry but hard to understand your issue from info provided. Not experienced any like issues with my 2004 cc but an image would help. Also, is the issue roof up, down or both? When closed are the shut lines even and does it open and close with the latch easily i.e. You don't need to tug it to open or...

Re: Megan 2 cc A pillar external panel damaged

Hi all, Well finally re-fitted both A Pillar trims and did what I said I didn't want to do which was fixing through the ally / plastic trim into the A panel itself with a self tapping screw. Why; well I can't forget what a bang it went with when my nearside item folded back at 70mph as it peeled bac...

Re: Megan 2 cc A pillar external panel damaged

Most definitely an option if there is sufficient clearance for the rivet between the plastic frame and the A pillar structure. Had assumed there wouldn't be but I'll check it out. Thanks

Re: Megan 2 cc A pillar external panel damaged

Thanks very much, I'll do something similar and yes the ally trim distorted for me too and I've been planishing it back as best I can to follow the contour of the plastic. I will need a replacement ultimately but for now it will do for fixing trials. I have a spool of stainless steel locking wire (a...

Re: Megan 2 cc A pillar external panel damaged

Hi rdp1612, Thank you for sharing your experience, absolutely correct on your last point re risk to other road users. I'll continue to look for a replacement but apart from it looking a bit unsightly, running without the ally panel is no issue for now. I've repaired the one that let go, cleaned away...

Megan 2 cc A pillar external panel damaged

Whilst driving the ally panel separated from its plastic attachment frame with a real bang (sounded like a gun shot), it had bent right back up to where the torx fixing held it at the top of the A Pillar. Basically it seems the glue that holds it on the plastic frame had let go. I'm looking for a re...

Re: Renault Megane convertible coupe 2005.

Is the whole gear knob worn or just the top gear map insert. If the latter you can just carefully prize it out and replace cheaply with new insert, many sold on ebay.

Re: Meg II CC Ownership Costs

Hi ChrisM, Thanks for the insight into the MkIII, really very good indeed and I'm sure helpful to anyone considering the change. Strange how Renault have changed the final drive to give higher revs in top gear. Could it be to ensure the DPF is purged, perhaps someone out there knows? Having said tha...

Mk2 Exterior door handle removal

Hi all, Have found information on how to remove exterior door handle (passenger door for me on my Mk2 CC) by removing a grommet from the door, inserting a hook around a latch, then pull to release the handle from the door. What I haven't found is anything on reinstating the handle. It might be clear...

Re: Meg II CC Ownership Costs

Thanks ChrisM
Very helpful tips. No better way to learn than from those who have been there and done it.
Cheers

Be very interesting to hear how you feel your Mk3 compares with the Mk2.

Re: Front Wing

Hi, how did you get on replacing your front wing as I'm still of the belief that CC wings are unique? ChrisM thought that all Megane II front ends were the same for a given year of vehicle. If you did manage to fit a non CC wing I'd be interested to know. Thanks
