Best advice for Megane owners: sell it before it bankrupts you!

At what point did I say they were torqued to the correct ammount ? I had a problem which i found a fix for and i shared it..... isnt that the point of these forums ?

would it not have been more constructive to say " these are supposed to be tightened to 105nm, your best bet would be to .................."

and is a tight bolt (although not as tight as is reccomended) better than a loose bolt ?

Hi,
I know it is an enormous thread resurrection, but i just thought i would add my note on this.
I did exactly as the chap suggested and tightened up those bolts and voila, clicking gone.
Today i cleaned the egr, fixed the clicking and found that my rattle at idle, which i assumed was something sinister, was in fact just the exhaust heat shield touching the exhaust.
My car now feels glorious!
