Hi there, I'm Carl, I run Phoenix autosport and had a 5 turbo back in the mid 90's was by far the most fun car I have ever had (and I have had a lot of quick cars) looking to find another for a weekend toy and to attend meets and shows

Hi. Just joined after a life of admiring and desperately needing a 5gt.
My life has been so incomplete and there is a void that needs to be filled!
Hope you are all well

New on the forum

Hi Guys Im Jason, im new to the forum but not to renault 5s. Ive owned 4 so far a TR, TL,  gtt but it never ran it was my first bought as an amature from a rip off garage with a blown head and a promise to fix but never did  :evil:  and my current a proper working model, which ive owned for the past 7yrs but never managed to get it properly on the road till now, due to time and money restraints as well as ongoing problems.

But none the less im here now, i knew the day would come when i could have that baby on the road, legal AND most of all Working!!!

so heres where im at. Got it out my folks garage back in April to get it mot'd what started as a few hundred pounds turned out to be failure on two pages and a shed load of welding.
1200 poorer and 6 weeks later, new mot and tax. I then had to have an alarm before bringing it home as every one ive owned has been raped! so i opted for a viper pager alarm 300 including fitting extra switches etc. its basic but does the job. so far no problems....touch wood.

the biggest ongoing problem ive faced for the past two months was trying to get the thing to run properly. been running rich, juddering etc, long story short lol after numerious trials and errors and more at the garage not to mention hours on the forum, i finally solved it!
turns out the previous owner tried to modify the carb to a ''group A'' and changed the main jet to a 1.5 without any other mods! also got the a few of the diaphrams on the side the wrong way round etc. Thanks to Bob and Jay @ cgb its now all solved!

so motor is running much better needs a few minor adjustments, now i have to get the boost working properly.
ive got a group a set up but i think its loosing pressure somewhere and its showing negative pressure on the gauge. I need a diagram so anyone that can help, it would be much appreciated

neways its good to be on the forum and i look forward to meeting u guys and coming out to a few runs etc

i've always been a big fan of the r5's and got the opportunity 6 months ago to buy one  :D
i'm an englishman living in australia so these cars are pretty rare over here !!
my local renault dealer here cannot do anything without part numbers.
i'm after rear wheel bearings at the moment but can't seem to find the part number on the net ??
i know i can get parts of e.bay and sent over from the u.k  but i'd rather try here first to save on postage and waiting time.
anyone know a website where i can get r5 part numbers or no the number for rear wheel bearings for an 87 r5 ?
cheers

Hi guy

im Rob, from the northampton area (i know poor me). how are you all? im on the rtoc as ren_5hitbox, i dont talk much but read every post lol. currently have a campus which will one day have something done to the engine (no idea what route yet).

ive wanted a 5 since my cousin owned one when i was a lad and he used to take me out through the town and drag everyone whilst listening to sneaker pimps 'spin spin sugar' :/

i also am self employed doing vehicle wraps and graphics for a living, some of my work has featured on top gear and 5th gear but maybe i will go on about that in a new thread

anyway.... enough about me, hope to hear from some new enthusiasts and would be good to have a midlands meet or something sometime???

stay safe  :D be cool  8)
boost really does get you laid
