    Thanks! Any suggestions? Parts of france are no longer operating.

    Good news everyone! Renault Australia has informed me that the timing service is optional and only needs completion if deemed necessary! (/sarcasm off) unfortunately they declined to put that into writing. I can't believe the lack of knowledge that exists in their corporate structure - as the consumer, I shouldn't have to argue with the manufacturer that my car actually has a belt and not the chain you keep insisting it has... Now I find out that my local renault dealer is leaving at the end of the month, so it looks like I will be doing the service myself! Is ktec still the best place to buy the kits?

    I very much get that reading the forum!

    I would say you're right... Pretty hopeless.

    Just found out it may not have had the timing belt done at the 100000km service... Even though the seller said it had been done. The service was done by renault but no mention of belt in consumables... When I called renault bendigo they said "it has a chain not a belt". FML!

    Thanks for confirming that it's not normal - I will have another crack at reseating them

    https://imgur.com/a/fbD4whk Hope this helps - I have also included a short video of the movement. Note that I have removed and reseated that light on the drive home from buying the car as the headlights were bouncing so much they looked like they were flashing on the highway. So it is better than what it was, but still has some movement.

    Thanks mate - it was more that I started it and then couldn't work out how to stop it! As a fellow owner, could you help me with something that is bothering me? The headlights seem to have some movement, as in if you put your fingers on the bottom edge, you can lift the light about 5mm - is that normal? Cheers, Ben

    Thanks Safetyman! That is unfortunate - that said, I am not upset because I don't know what I'm missing! I figured out the button to start the lap timer but couldn't figure out how to stop it - is it a click and hold type situation?

    Also, I found it interesting that the previous owner had no idea about the rs monitor and as such told me that it didn't have it! I had a play last night and it is a nifty feature, but I feel like there are some things I'm missing. Is there a owner's manual for rs monitor?

    Thanks Dave!! I am coming from a modified 2003 Astra turbo (same username if there is anyone on here from Opelaus).

    Hi all, I have just become a new member of the Renault family with a black 2013 GT 220 wagon. I picked it up over the weekend with a few projects to complete - namely tyres for rego. It seems to have the oily rocker cover problem that I have cleaned up to pinpoint what the culprit is. It may also need a thermostat - but more data collection will be required. I look forward to contributing to the OZRS forum!
