  1. hi guys. done a little tarting up on the 250. also lifted the engine cover height on the d/s . i didnt like the lobb sided look lol. 20200504_130621_resized.jpg
  2. not bad for 100,000 miles and 10 years old
  3. 2017_07_28_11_31_58_177.jpg quick question for all. my map sensor is held in place by a tie wrap. there appears to be no stud or nut like this pic i found on the web?.
  4. Does it look like it has snapped off under the sensor, all mk3's i have seen have a stud, mk2's have a clip, does the rest of the manifold look the same.
  5. no reminse of a stud ian. its weird. could it have had a manifold change maybe
  6. will get a pic cover off
  7. That is really weird, everything else looks right, was thinking it might have been changed for a R26 one, but it has fewer pipe connections.

    What age is your car, it looks like where the tie wrap lump is, thats where the spring clip on a mk2 fits, so i#m thonking its a really early engine.

    If I remember well, it have a kind of clip to hold the sensor. When I saw it first time I thought must be a joke...Renault again!!

  10. actually just checked its a june 2010 car
  11. same as mine found on the net renault-megane-rs-250-cup-2011-820_69.jpg

  13. same sort of idea, they must have had a problem with the early ones and that's why they changed it to a stud.

    A tie wrap will hold it better than that little clip.
