Renault 5 GT Turbo / confused big time... wiring nightmare
« on: 14:05, Tue 11 May 2010 »
hi guys. right the problem ive got is when i bought my 5 it wasnt running very well and i planned to make it a nice clean example with a few breathing mods... now the problem i have is ive stripped the car with the help of a friend whooo...... took afew wires off in the excitement of dismantling. Now its been in the paint shop for ages now and is soon hopefully coming out ive been staying late with the guy in the body shop doing a few bits to the 5.

But ive got a brand new loom from CGB (meant to be orignal?? cant remember) It is ran in the engine bay from where i remember it runs now the easy stuff such as oil lever etc that can only reach so far and can only be one thing are on. But ive got a bunch of wires that feed up to the alternator yellow and red/brown (colourblind) lol

Basicly im looking to see if anyone else has had one of these looms and has any diagrams of what goes where? i am the owner of a haynes manual which the diagrams are confusing and i can seem to locate out off all the engine bay ones which is the correct one for the gt turbo.

Its been over 9 months since it was all taken apart i spent a day looking at these wires just hoping to jog my memory. The other problem being my old loom was 20 years old and had been cut etc and bits replaced.

Any help would be great sorry for such a long winded post lol

Renault 5 GT Turbo / knock sensors? front of head???/? what is it?
« on: 14:06, Thu 22 April 2010 »
hi guys been a while since i worked on my 5 but it is getting closer to being finished now the painter has carryed on working on it!! but ive read somewhere on here that the sensor in the front of the cyclinder head is a "knock sensor"?? now i have phoned many suppliers near me euro car parts, cats automotive and also renault them selfs and they dont see this sensor listed for the car. Renault also phoned renault france and got them to check on the micro vision and they also didnt come up with anything....????

Now my problem is that the old one is dirty and looks tatty and i want a nice new shinny one but of course as said none of the suppliers seem to list them...... does anyone happen to know where i can get one? or the part number for it so i can order it from renault?

Any help is great welcomed

Your cars / My 5 Raider Project
« on: 19:02, Wed 13 May 2009 »
hi guys im new to the site, and have only just got my first 5.

Its a Raider that well hadnt be loved and ruined slighty but all will be straight with it soon.

This is what it looked like when i got it







So my plans are to get the car looking lovely and clean again on the outside, car will be slightly lowered, and the engine is going to be tuned for abit of extra power.

so the work begins


Silcone hose heaven under the bonnet shame about the colour not my cup of tea. These will be sold and new ones to replace will be purchased.


Strip most of the piping out ready for engine removal


Engine bay was very dirty so been degreased and pressure washed out




Engine has now mainly been stripped down.

Currently trying to sort out what spec engine should be built to for around 180bhp.

But alot of work to go and alot of money :D speaking to painter soon for a respray.

Cheers for looking Dave
