General Chat / Crash
« on: 06:56, Wed 03 September 2008 »
Had a crash last night. :o

Front bumper is destroyed, front panel looks bent in.

Looks like the Chassis might have a bend in it aswell.

Its driving and it aint leaking, but i think it might be a write off :(

Some cnut cut me up and i ended up hitting a pole.

A mechanic friend of mine is coming to look at it tomorrow, to tell me the bad news.


Luckily its only a campus and not a turbo otherwise i would be rather upset.

General Chat / No consideration
« on: 06:56, Wed 13 August 2008 »
Last night i went down to luton to meet scratcher (and his mate with a black phase 2, you will have to tell me who) to pick up a parcel shelf for my r5.

Anyway, i get home to find that some pr*ck has hit the back of my car and driven off. I was parked on the road, but very tight to the curb. Can't believe it, luckily i have a new back bumper coming from Mike Wilson, but it's the principle.

Your cars / R5 Campus - 1.4 - 1993. Replica.
« on: 09:50, Mon 11 August 2008 »
Hey guys.

I have a campus GT lookalike :) I was getting quoted 5000 for the 1.4 turbo.

Mines *work in progress* but here are pictures of the car when i bought it.

Front of car

Awful smoked indicators which are well used, non-matching front headlights, dodgy front grill, bad front number plate.

Under Bonnet

Pretty standard with old parts all over the place. Head gasket blown and cooling system bad.


Seats worn and ripped, carpet dirty and ragged, speakers so old that the magnets broken.

Back of car

Back bumper cracked and broken. Back cluster broken without the part underneith the light.

Number plates are awful with some sort of chav renault badges all over them.


Once Complete i will post some pics of what i have done to fix the car.

Debating putting a 1.4 lump in and not telling the insurance company but not too sure yet. It's well dodgy to do (vin numbers etc).

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Parcel shelf plans

Or if anyone has any links or any advice help.


Other Renaults / water pump

Would this fit a renault 5 - campus - prima - 1.4 - 1993



Other Renaults / Help :(
« on: 23:40, Wed 30 July 2008 »
Right got some big problems with the renault 5 campus.

The coolant tank (circled) has so much pressure and water is p*ssing out of there, i got a new cap for it but made no difference.

Tried using some radweld but still no difference.

Steam is coming out of the bonnet, and its getting really hot.

Seems like there is air in the pipes.

A experienced clio friend of mine thinks it is possibly the head gasket.

If it is how hard is it to replace? Can anyone else think what it could be?

Thanks in advance.

Other Renaults / Air Filter
« on: 01:41, Sun 27 July 2008 »
I know it is not a GT Turbo....


I'm after a K & N Filter for a 1.4 - R5 - campus (1993) does anyone know if i can get a k&N filter or induction kit for it. If so could you give me the part code.
