Renault 5 GT Turbo / How to mount rear boot spoiler.
« on: 06:41, Sun 19 May 2013 »
Hi there,

the previous owner of my 5 had a nasty aftermarket boot spoiler mounted. Of course I have dismounted that spoiler, it did however leave a couple of bolt holes on the boot lid.

Now I have bought an OE phase 2 spoiler to fit instead. So, can I mount the spoiler without drilling more holes? I've got some industrial double sided tape, and am tinking about using that, if possible. Otherwise maybe some SikaFlex... I do prefer the tape, though.

Any recommendations?

Which tool do you use to center the clutch when reinstalling?

Hi guys,

my clutch is dead, so I am going to replace it soon. As the gearbox is off the engine, is there anything else I should change as well? I have bought a K-Tec lightened flywheel, so that is going to be fitted. More ideas?
What about some gaskets etc.?

Thanks a lot guys!

make sure you get the "long clutch arm mod kit" aswell

I find you don't have to use that, to be honest it comes down to personal preference. I've never used one, yeah the valeo clutch is abit bitey without it but for some reason it feels little too soft with the extension fitted. But thats just me  :D  :wink:
I would like the clutch to be some what bitey, as that feels more racey. Soft clutches are for soft drivers :lol:
So do I need a full clutch set (3-piece) or is it enough with just the plate it self?

The usual Valeo Volvo 480 turbo clutch will do you perfectly mate, don't go for the Sach's one its not very 'uprated' at all
Okay, thanks mate!
I'll try to find one Volvo 480 clutch then.

Cheers mate!

I am going to buy a new clutch. I want an uprated one this time.

But which one do you reccomend? There are lots of different clutches on the market and prices really differ as well.
I would say it has to fit an engine output of 150-180 bhp.

New steering wheel: OMP Corsica with OMP boss and Lifeline quick release boss. I also fitted a new OE gear knob. Looks great.

Thanks chaps 8)

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: Worn clutch?
« on: 11:55, Sat 16 July 2011 »
Yeah, so it sounds like i have to change it. Which was what I expected.
It doesn't matter though, as I will have the opportunity to install the lightened flywheel I bought some time ago as well...

Cheers chaps!

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Worn clutch?
« on: 14:23, Fri 15 July 2011 »
on my trip to the Nordschleife a few days ago, when I was overtaking a lorry, it felt like the clutch slipped.
It is fine in low revs, but when the boost went up and the turbo really pulled, the clutch slipped and the revs just went up and up, without the car accelerating. I don't know if it is the clutch, but I reckon it is as it has never been changed... As far as I know.
Further more the clutch pedal has become loose the first couple of cm. when pressing it. And the position of the pedal, when the clutch engages, has moved to the top of the pedal's trajectory.
Is it worn?
I hope some of you guys can answer me :wink:


Great. Thank you very much!

i've found this on the net:

Oil system
Gear type oil pump.
Pressure at 80 °C:
1.3 bar (18.85 psi) at 750 rpm.
3.2 bar (46.41 psi) at 4000 rpm.
Thanks Ruske. If these numbers are true, then my oil pressure is perfect.
