General Chat / Wiring up gauges.. Easy answers.
« on: 23:28, Wed 15 June 2011 »
Hi everyone, mods please move this if its in the wrong place :lol:
Just wired up a big rev counter  and boost gauge and thought I would post up how I did it, just  incase anyone is stuck with it like I was :)
If you dont have a clock, a really easy way is to use the clock plug. I cut it off which leaves you with..
Red - constant 12v. Yellow - constant 12v. Blue - switched 12v. Black - earth.
If you need to pick up the signal wire (for a tacho) it is the WHITE wire, bottom plug on the AEI unit.

Mark helped me via text with this and Id have struggled otherwise! Hope that it  helps someone! :):)

General Chat / Quick release steering wheel/boss
« on: 14:31, Thu 24 March 2011 »
I dont know if this should go in techincal issues, general chat or parts wanted so here it goes lol.
 Basically im after a quick release boss and possibly wheel so i can take my steering wheel out overnight.
If they make one for the standard wheel or one can be adapted that would be awesome but im guessing there isnt one. Is there one that everyone seems to go for? I dont think ive seen one at all on a 5 but im hoping there quite easy to get hold of?
Anyways any help would be great people!!

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Turbo broken?
« on: 17:07, Wed 02 March 2011 »
Alright guys, basically under any revs i can hear a high pitched whistle.. after about a minute of this smoke started coming out. This was just sitting at tickover, 4 in the afternoon in t shirt weather. It never smokes in these conditions so i was starting to worry..
Got on the phone to mark and whipped the telephone hose off and hey presto some up/down play in the shaft.. not severe but enough to be a problem IMO..  :(  :(  :(

What could have done this? Is it f*cked.. is it more than the turbo to do this?
Any ideas??
Any help would be seriously appreciated because i love this car to bits and i really dont wanna sell her... please any help?
