Renault Clio

My Clio was working fine, until i went to trip to another country. One day i started my car and sign on the dashboard showed i had no fuel. (Even though it had around 1/3 of tank full before). I went to a gas station and they said they could only fill it with 5l of gas cause the tank was full. But sign showed only 1/3 is filled. Went to mechanic, he opened the tank and said it was working fine, probably just some air was stuck in the tank and that's why it could not be filled. Next day, went to gas station to fill it, worker there filled it all the way up but gas started leaking somewhere from the tank. About 1/3 of the tank leaked. Now, every time i try to fill it all the way up, it just starts leaking. I can only fill it till 2/3 of the tank before it starts leaking. Any ideas?

Good day I have a clio 4 dynamic 0.9 dynamic 2014 model The car was in an accident on the left front door "passenger door" . The one airbag by the door went off by the passenger side and when I tried to start the car it didn't want, it simply said the airbag has deployed I was wondering can I somehow remove the sensors so that I can have the car moving at least or is there another way perhaps. Please assist me. Thank you

Answers

Your SRS module stores crash data in its memory and may not allow start until reset. You could try disconnecting the battery for an hour or so to see if that resets it otherwise you may have to purchase airbag resetting software, usually available by download. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Jenny, Gloucestershire

This morning I have started my car no problem put it in gear and took of the hand break and nothing the car would not move. hand break was off and car in gear but nothing was happening. I revved it and put it in and out of gear and it finally moved after a few large clunk noises I think in back of the car. It was as if the breaks where still on, it felt like it was in gear and did this a few times to make sure. What could it be? Its booked in the garage next week and I would like to know what it could be with driving it over the next week.

I changed my battery in my key for my car as it wasn't working and used the advice online to reset it. However now my indicators keep going off even though the car is off and locked while I'm at home. Any ideas on how to stop this so my battery doesn't go and I need to get a new one. The car has already cost a lot to fix after being bought by a dealer who didn't even send my papers off to the delay to say it had been bought, was convinced he put new tyres on it even though when my dad got it down here for me from liverpool the tyres were illegal. Just seems to be problem after problem and this is the latest one. All because my key battery stopped working. Any help would be really helpful. Thanks

Charalambos, Cyprus

Renault Clio

The car when in low speeds ie under 40mph doesn't make a sound but above that speed and in highways with the front windows rolled up fully there is a hissing twirling sound of wind coming through from the outside to the inside of the car . I noticed that when you place outwards pressure on the vertical plastic window guide ( shaping the side mirror triangular glass wind shield ) the noise stops ; Is there a remedy for this sort of problem , as the agency when reported to them took some sort of remedial action that didn't prove effective , thanks !

My car squeaks and creaks when I drive on uneven roads, without touching the brakes. My mechanic lubricated the brake calipers and it was fine for a few days and now it is back and getting worse. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Answers

It could just be that your suspension bushes are old and tired. You can quiet then down by spraying them with a rubber lubricant, just don't get it on any of the braking surfaces. Mick from Portugal

Phil Morris, West Sussex

After my Clio has been running a while and is warm, the yellow service light comes on and the message "check injection" appears. The car seems to continue to run normally but can struggle a bit going uphill, otherwise ok. I get the car home or I can stop and turn the engine off. After a few seconds, I fire the engine up again and the service light has gone out and there is no message but after a while it can all happen again. Does anyone know what is going on?

Hi, wondering if anybody can help me. I have a fault on my Clio wiper/ indicator stalks ... I was looking at having them replaced. Problems are washers not working at all , wipers only work on one setting . I've looked on eBay and found the parts that look exactly the same except they have different serial numbers ? Do the numbers have to match my old ones or can I just buy the ones that look exactly like mine ? Any help would be appreciated thanks ??
