    197s are getting silly cheap?

    Just having a little browse through PH/AT/eBay at 182s to get a feel for current prices and it seems that 197s are approaching silly cheap money? Saw quite a few cars around the £3/3.5k mark, with 60-70k miles, some with gearbox swaps and a couple of years left on the belts. Seems like these...

    Debadging like a noob

    I impulsively debadged my car tonight at -1 with boiling water and tooth floss but now I've messed my clear coat up Hating it. On the bright side I fitted LEDs throughout which look dope.

    197 cabasse aux input help!

    So I have purchased a iPod cable to put in the amp (under the drivers seat) hooked it all up and nothing is happening. Spoken to the supplier and he hasn't got a clue "never known it to not work" Seen some 10 year old posts but just wondered if anyone has had any look recently.

    Tom's 182 and 197

    Hi everyone! So this is the start of my 'thread'. I won't call it a build thread for now as I won't actually be building much (I don't think so anyway), but rather just a collection of my two RenaultSports. My very first post was a review for Steve @RSportsCars, so I shall lift some of that...

    197 braided lines

    Does anyone know what aftermarket lines are the closest to OEM fitment, I.e. Going around the damper, mounting on the hub and fitting to the calliper. I like the look of these but I can't see a length to them. http://www.brake-lines.co.uk/hel-brake-lines-for-renault-clio-mk3-197.html Cheers

    197 Lux

    Yo, I was going to stick these in the 'What have you done to your car today?' topic but I thought I'd whore a full new topic instead. Gave the 197 some TLC this morning, fitted new TRW droplinks, replaced the aerial for a stubby alternative (thanks for the support @Typhoon & @james24785 ), also...

    Timing tools help please.

    Some assistance required. Bought timing tool set off the bay to do cam let change on Ph1 172. Engine no rusted away and not on log book. Camshaft locking Tool doesn't fit and apparently according to seller kit fits F4R 730 and 732 but not F4R 736. On this basis I assume I have a F4R 736...

    Clio 197 - Won't start

    So I've had a bit of an issue with the 197. First off I was driving home and the "ESP Deactivated" warning came up. Thought nothing of it and assumed it was a dodgy sensor or ABS ring. Then I got "Brake Fault" followed shortly by "Steering Fault". All this time the car was driving fine aside...

    Alternator Woes

    Just wondering if anyone know whether a 225 alternator will fit onto the 197. I've been told it does and I can get hold of one much easier than I can a 197 item. Anyone? @Scrooge @Budgie

    Continental cs3 performance

    Bit of an odd one. I've been falling out with the cs3s fitted to the 197 recently. It started on a spirited country drive last year when the rear got a bit squiggly on perfectly dry roads. Normally it's always properly planted with cs3s all round. Then at oulton I could not get traction...

    GW 197 Lux

    Hi all, Few years back I had a 172 Cup which due to reliability issues had to replace with something newer, reliable and slower to get me to work, which ended up being an Ibiza. It did its job but I got incredibly bored and had an itch that needed scratching, so impulsively decided I was going...

    Ly r27 bath

    It's hardly worth its own thread but I gave the car its first proper wash of the year. I didn't do a write up as it was the same process as I always do; wash, decontaminate, glaze instead of polish because I don't have time to correct at the moment, wax and dress the trims. Proper...

    Clio M4R engine noise

    Strange one. So my brothers got a 197. He bought it from a dealer without me taking a look witg him, he's kind of a spare of the moment guy. The deal was they done a cambelt and water pump, I know it's been done as the parts are in the boot. Any way it makes this noise once warm if not driven...

I have...
