Lowering and spacers?

I've recently bought a Megane 2 1.6 with standard alloys. I was looking at it in bright sunshine yesterday and it occurred to me how MASSIVE the arches are.. The alloys don't "fill" the arches, and there's way too much gap between wheel and arch. What kind of lowering kit should I be looki...

Re: Repair Manuals and Electrical Diagrams (old thread)

You can download pdf versions of many Renault owners manuals for free, here: https://www.manuals365.com/mfgcat/renault_cars.html
I downloaded the Megane 2 2005 manual with no problems.
These are in English.


Note: You can't really view them online - it looks rubbish

I'm assuming you needed to use the key due to a flat battery, so you can then pop the bonnet and change or recharge the battery.
Without this backdoor method you would be stuffed!

ELM 327 OBD 2 Bluetooth thingy

I've never had a car that allows me to tinker with the system before, so now I've got a Megane, I've ordered a cheapo ELM327 sender that works with my Android phone ( from Amazon: click here.. ) I should be able to view and reset codes etc, without paying huge amounts to the garage. Does anyone else...

Re: Spare Key

I have a similar issue - scruffy card, no text on it, and only the one card.
I'd like to get a decent-looking card and keep this one as a spare. I DO have the emergency key, though..

(Teesside area.)

BTW - what does the third button, the one on the right, actually DO?

I just bought a Megane..

I recently bought a Megane 2 1.6 VVT "Dynamique" model, second hand from a slightly dodgy car dealer. I was fully aware of what I was getting into, having previously bought "Spares or Repairs only" and "Sold as seen" cars from the same guy, years ago.. I used to buy, fi...
