  1. Hi Cam,

    Hope you're having a good easter.

    I took Serrano out to Morgan Park Raceway last week and had sensational fun. That ca is just great.

    I changed the oil before hand but couldn't get to the filter. Do I have to unbolt the ITBs to get to it?

  2. Hi Mate,

    I'm giving you a hoy as I can see you've had some experience with DMFWs.

    My local dealership just replaced the rear engine mount in my 225. Transmission has tightened up nicely but rattle is still evident when/as the clutch is let out and when riding over bumps. Dealership diagnose worn DMFW but say they can't be sure. They're not ruling out another worn engine mount but say they can't check that until they drop the gearbox. Is it possible for the DMFW to rattle, as it does, while driving with the clutch out?

    Cheers,

    Jim

      Hey mate,

      Never had any experience with replacing them or problems with mine, hopefully I'll have moved on from the Renault before it plays up.

      I do think DMF's are a bad idea. Makes more sense to me to spring the clutch disc and have a solid reusable flywheel like cars have had for decades. That way only the clutch disc is consumable instead of the disc and the flywheel.

       

      Sorry I can't help you mate.

    Hi Ace,

    Rob240 suggested I get in touch with you as a man with vast knowledge.

    I'm chasing a blue slip for my 172, Serrano, with a similar problem I think you had back in 2012 with The Silver Bullet.

    I bought it with Recaros and a recalcitrant airbag light. I've put the original seats in and traced the problem to the airbag control unit ruined by coffee.

    Part # 8200375763. Needs to have not been deployed.

    Any thoughts?

  10. I've owned 4 Fuegos including one that I built as a track-day car with the luxury of roll cage, race seat and 5 point harness. I currently own an RS225 road car and a 172 which is well on the way to being a very nice track-day car. What I'm hoping y'all can help me with is a 172 driver's seat with intact airbag which I need in order to make it roadworthy. I'd rather go the whole hog and fit a cage, race seat and harness, but sadly it's not possible to register with those mods and the 225 ain't big enough to tow a car trailer. I live on the far north coast of NSW. If someone out there has a seat they don't need, please give me a call on 0407 357 627. The Recaros in the photo will be up for sale. Cheers, JimiD
