LY 220T & DCi65 Van
Those seats came up brilliant!!! Let me know if you see any spare centre caps for sale. I got a set of initiale wheels for the van, but they came attached to this as part of the deal lol
I heard there was an initiale for sale on ebay the same as mine but couldnt find it when i looked. Take it this was it then??
No mate this isn't the one, but I know the one your talking about it was blue too. This one was £100, rusty back arches and 1.6 auto a heap of shiteI heard there was an initiale for sale on ebay the same as mine but couldnt find it when i looked. Take it this was it then??
Tell me the details... how much did you give for it? Whats the interior like? And is it the 100?
So true Diego!I usually try to not even think about how much the car has costed me so far.
It'll easily be around the £1500 mark I reckon, most of it was for parts I didn't even need !
oh well, still better than paying £1500 for an used car and then having to spend another 600 on it, from my point of view you still got a massive bargain !!
Thanks mate. How would you know if the turbo is starting to fail? What are the signs of that?Oily egr could be a sign of a turbo beggining to fail, avoid driving too much until you know it will just burn all your oil away and could blow engine up
Would rather just keep it standard. And would a blank now leave the eml light on permanently?Surprised you didn’t just put a blank on the EGR. That’s what I’ll be doing.
I wouldn’t worry about the car smoking a bit either, they are getting on a little now.
How far have you been driving the car? If it’s short drives then it will get quite sooty. I put some fuel additive in every now and then.
The valve was moving freely as i checked that before putting it on. Massively annoying! I might have to buy another one, just to really rule out that this is a duff unit!That’s strange, the annoying thing is - anything 2nd hand is hard to judge, it could well still be the issue. I’d probably take it back off, take the live off the battery too, give the EGR a good soak in petrol and make sure the valve is free moving, then stick a blank on and plug it back in.
Which is the inlet part lol??
Does it just come out from the top? Know of any guides or videos anywhere?id whip that turbo off for a rebuild since you plan on keeping the motor.
on my DCi80 I just unplugged the EGR valve which blanks it, mine was running bluefin software and never brought on the light so im not sure if they disable it.
I never touched the turbo on my 100 so never had to remove one, it should come out the top id imagine, its fairly easy on a dci 65/80 remove the airbox, egr housing gives you access to get it out the top. there will probably be guides online for 65/80 but its all reasonably similarDoes it just come out from the top? Know of any guides or videos anywhere?
Not too bad, but thats a £210 saving at least if you do it yourself. Are they using genuine Renault parts? And is the alt belt just a belt change or tensioner too?I’ve just had a quote of £370 to change the belt/water pump/ alternator belt and coolant. Not bad for a guaranteed job?

Thats it mate. £210 that could be saved or spent on something else that needs doing.Yup, it’s all gates items - and that’s everything replaced, tensioner etc.
I’m still tempted to just book a long weekend off work and give it a go. £370 is half the value of the car..
