renault 5 parts
« on: 19:02, Sun 14 August 2011 »
hi i just bought a L reg r5 1.4 campus it has no tax or mot and was wondering where to get parts from as i looked on ebay and could not find any. does clio brakes suspension etc fit an r5? i dont know exactly what is needed as havent took it for a mot test yet but if somebody knows a site where i can get parts from could you please post a link or list clio(or any other car) parts that are known to fit a renault 5.

if anybody is interested i can list what needs to be done after i have took it for an mot test.

all i know is after i got home i went through the papers and on the last mot advisorys was.

front brake discs slightly pitted
front brake pads where wearing thin
a few brake pipes was slightly corroded
front discs starting to corroded

the car has done about 500 miles since then dont know if the last owners got them done but the car has been sitting about 8 months the rest of the car look quite good and it started straight up.

also what does it do when people say swap the wires around on the tdc sensor?

any info/advice is appreciated

Euro Car Parts should have everything you need.

As for the TDC sensor, if you swap the wires around it advances the ignition. Not sure how much by though. Probably not that good an idea to be honest.

if you look long enough on ebay the parts you usually need will appear
it helps looking at ebay.es and ebay.fr :D
