well i got my gear box out to replace the clutch to find my thrust bearing in 5 bits and part of the arm out of the box was smashed so when i put the thrust bearing on it was loose and just flopped about.

so today i got my self a renault 11 gear box to go on and hopefully it will be back on the road today.

also fitting my front mount while the car is in bits  :D

new clutch ordered, picking that up at 1pm today and ordered the rest of my boost pipes so i will be able to get the intercooler and clutch done at the same time  :D

once the front mount intercooler is fitted, what is the max, safest i can turn the boost up too?

well was out and about today and my clutch went. thrust bearing has gone i think, peddle hit the floor and when i checked the cable it was fine, checked the clutch leaver on top of the box and i could move it with my hand. price a new clutch up at euro car parts for 85. anyone recommend anywhere else?

Check the pedal itself before you start removing everything. The ratchet is plastic and prone to failing.

what about the clutch arm on the ox tho? it shouldnt move that easy. the arm is pushed right over 2wards the passange side of he box. :?:

love that looks pretty tidy tbh, colour is unusual but it really suits it and i like it lots lol, it does look very similar to the bonnet i piliaged from a campus so perhaps its a colour renault used it the later years of the 5. oh but as said lose the vent  :wink:

thanks  :D i need to go get a pint match as i dont have a paint code for it.  it has a few dints and scratches that i want taking out.
also about the bonnet, i quite like it but i want a louvered bonnet when i can afford it and i want a set of phase 1 rear arches and a single wiper

i am having a problem with my headlight, side lights and horn. horn or side lights dont work at all and my headlights keep flashing when they aint even on and when i try turning them on they dont come on. where can i find the relay for the headlights?

also what is the brown relay for behind the passanger side headlight and the 2 black felays for behind the driver side headlight?
