Car Mechanics (UK) - - Electronics Doctor -

All ref­er­ences in our text and cap­tions to ‘left’ and ‘right’ sides are from the point of view of some­one sit­ting in the car and look­ing ahead.

If you at­tempt a cam­belt change, a lock­ing kit is es­sen­tial for the free­wheel­ing crank­shaft pul­ley set-up, and the wa­ter pump must be re­newed at the same time as the cam­belt. These Re­naults also in­cor­po­rate an elec­tronic steer­ing lock which can break with­out warn­ing, leav­ing the car im­mo­bilised.

As you may have gath­ered, these Mé­ganes have a very poor rep­u­ta­tion in the trade and among own­ers who have in­vested their own cash in this model, only to dis­cover their many short­com­ings in terms of un­re­li­a­bil­ity.
