Is your starter a standard Valeo as I have a Bosch and it just doesn't work as it should - it makes a horrible noise but it's fitted correctly. I've changed it twice too and it doesn'ty make any difference. If it's not may be best to get a standard one and try that - there's some on eBay at the mo.

I've just removed my turbo and it says airsearch 48 on the internals.I've had a look on google and it's saying it's a Garrett Airsearch T3-is this a hybrid?

Cheers

Hehe you think your's is bad - I bought mine in Feb and have drove it for 6 days in total - nearly fixed now though! (Until the next thing goes wrong) ;) haha, cars, or should i say r5gtt's!
Rebuilding the top half of the engine at the mo as it overheated and sounds like yours but have just found one of the push rods is bent so they will need replacing now too.

and the good thing about them is that if you wanted to warm your car up beofore going to work etc, you can turn it on, set the timer for 10 mins and have a cup of tea! If anyone lets the handbrake off the engine turns off so no one can nick it.  :D

Here's some cheapy ones on ebay but as I said, they all do the same job and we've never had any problems with ones like these.

I think Blitz do them for Renault and you can get universal ones.  We got a universal one for the Escort RS from eBay. They all do the same job.

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Radiators on a PH2 GTT
« on: 09:20, Wed 16 July 2008 »
Hi,

just wondered if anybody knew whether radiators are a common problem on a phase 2 as the oil cooler in mine may have split and it seems to be a new radiator?  If so, does anyone know what would cause it?

Cheers  :D

I got the Haynes Renault 5 book that covers the GTT from Amazon for 1.something. In English. Worth getting.
