Re: Keycard battery life - 24 hrs

I wouldn't risk removing the battery for any length of time!
I'd be worried that it would lose some crucial (RenaultSpeak for "expensive") setting..

Re: Changing indicator bulb

Oh My God!
You really need to dismantle the front end to change a bulb? FFS..
I am surprised there are so many still on the road - £100 each time a bulb blows? That would be about 1/5 of the car's value..

Re: Weird Locking behaviour again..

Sorry, we got our wires crossed! I meant the battery in the key card.. because it went apeshit when I got within range.. I agree with what you said about built-in obsolescence as well, and to make it worse, it will all have been designed by a committee, like everything in France.. Renault have alway...

Weird Locking behaviour again..

The Megane has started playing up again. Last night the locks went berserk as I walked towards it. Indicator lights flashing etc. I hadn't even pressed a button.. this is not the first time.. Did the usual - press lock and then unlock. All seemed OK until I switched the engine off and removed the ca...

Re: Megane dash is saying electronic fault please hwlp

Renault + water = disaster.
It's the main cause of all door/windows/locks/whatever faults. Anyone would think they don't have rain in France?

Re: The Dreaded Steering Lock Issue

Hi All I know this is fairly well documented on here however, I have been unable to find any information as to how to remove the steering lock if the lock will not disengage. Has anyone had much success in removing said steering lock when it is locked on and will not come off? Would I be able to br...

Re: Constant Humming/Droning Megane II

I think that's more to do with front wheel bearings?

Clutch problems..

The clutch on my 1.6 petrol megane slips in high gear, for example when accelerating from a roundabout. Is this likely to be an adjustment problem or a new clutch? If so, what's the going rate?

Re: Here's a good one..

Forgot to mention. This was the second psychotic episode of the day.. the first was a full-on "lockfit" moment. Pulled up in Morrison's car park, both front windows open as it was stupidly hot. Removed card. All doors locked. All windows automatically closed. Doors refused to open until I ...

Here's a good one..

Pulled up on drive. Stopped engine. Removed card. Went inside. Heard fan running.
Half an hour later, daughter says, "why is the car engine running, dad"?
And it was. Car locked. Key in house. Engine running.
WTF?

Re: No power below 2300 after turbo replaced

I am sooo glad I bought the petrol model.
Even with the (stupidly) high road tax.
Most of the faults on this forum are dci issues..

Re: 3 weeks in and I need a bank loan

It's an old car (10 years is old).
Why not use second-hand or reconditioned parts?
