  1. Start a charity fundraiser drive day? how does the car drive ?
  2. Hi Gambit,

    Noticed that you're online and a Clio 2 owner like me.

    My Clio 2  has a faulty camshaft dephaser solenoid valve. Oil is bleeding up through the sensor socket. The oil makes it over to the headers where it's a fire risk and a headache for me as the fumes get into the cabin.

    I'm hoping you or somebody else out there has a spare in good condition?

      Hi Jim, 

      I had a spare VCT solenoid alas no longer :(


      you will need this:



      Rocker cam sensor seal o-ring Part # 7700106385

      Hope that helps !

      But you will also need a new solenoid.

    Hello! Clio 2 PH1

    I have been pulling apart a Clio II engine loom and all I can say is that the wiring, terminals and plug connectors are all of very low quality combined with the fact the looms are over 15years old there are going to be issues associated with earthing to ground from many contact points. Check all your grounds and give them a good clean would be a start.

    All this is true and correct 👍
  5. I’d say that is a very good price ! I’d be snapping that up fixing it and then knowing it had been done right !
  6. Agree with the above. It really depends how cheap you get the car. Get a specialist to do it and i'd say that list of things to do would cost $2k~ to sort out, parts and labour. You'll just have to price that into total cost of purchase. Having said that once that's sorted it would be a lovely car.

    Hello! Clio 2 PH1

    Yes it might be the immobilizer , usually the transponder in the key fob plays up.
  8. Well done and congrats! Now how does it drive compared to the internet reviews?
  9. Good to hear makes a difference to have a positive buying experience.
  10. Congrats!! Which dealership was it through?
  11. That’s a long list of repairs and a hefty bill of parts and labor to fix. Seems to be a bit hit and miss with the Clio IIs now that they are getting a bit older. Previous years you would be able to pick up a minter with low kms but now the good ones are getting harder and harder to find. Which may translate to higher prices for those that are looked after by enthusiast.
  12. I think they are headed for Noojee , better be quick though !
  13. To throw more confusion my LEBO came without stripes 😂
