Re: Newbie

Hi Andy and welcome! My dealer put a self tapper at the joint to the filter without a complaint from me... So they're not all bad!

Re: 1.5dci EGR location/clean

Thanks, Hound, for the 1.6 dCi diagrams, no quick fix there either...

Perhaps best to leave well alone and hope for the best. There is some computer "learning" as per instructions, to be done after disturbing the EGR, so not a spanner and screwdriver job. :(

Re: 1.5dci EGR location/clean

Wow, so not a very quick fix.

Hound, do you have the relevant diagram for the 1.6 Dci, as all information about maintenance of those engines seems to be almost a state secret... ;) After 105,000 kms., I suspect an EGR clean might be in order.
Thank you.

Re: New Member

Do not 1.6 dCi QQs, whether J10 or J10 facelift have that self regenerating system also?

Re: Start stop failure and engine warning lights - any advice please?

Perhaps I haven't been paying attention at the back, but is this not one of the first mentions of DPF problems on a 1.6 dCi? I thought Renault had sorted things out on this engine.
Hope you can keep the exhaust free flowing from now on, Richard. :)

Re: DMF clutch vs solid flywheel

There are those who suggest that the DMF is essential to keep shockwaves to the gearbox to a minimum, otherwise excessive bearing wear may result. Some feel no difference when driving with a solid flywheel, others feel vibration and suggest that there is a good reason for DMFs. The jury is out methi...

Re: Rear brake discs after 25k 22 months

Fleabay discs are considerably cheaper and rust only a little faster... ;)

Re: Ride Quality

As I understand it, multi link is used on 4x4 versions, and mine is very comfortable even when well loaded. :)
