front shockers and spring

Postby neo123 » Sun Apr 08, 2018 9:08 pm

Hi my spring snapped on my megane 1.5 dci and i was wondering if anyone knew if the 1.5dci front springs are the same as the 1.4 petrol version for the same model car. Finding it very difficult to source second hand 1.5 dci version.

Renault megane ll 2003

thank you

Hi,
it's a good idea when confronted by this kind of query to put your reg no into eurocarparts or carspares ltd and see what comes up.
Then do the same for a petrol car on say, gumtree or ebay and see if the same spring comes up.
ps l think they're the same, but good to check.
Bob.

check ebay, this time last year i bought a pair for £17.60 and at the moment there still fine. Watch out for rusted bolts, one side was no problem, drivers. Passenger side was a nightmare, new hub as the strut clamp bolt would not open and then the drive shaft would not come out of the hub so ended up with a new drive shaft.........
