Need help


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 

I have purchased a 2013 megane rs265 rb8 from the dealer 2 weeks ago and has been an absolutely awesome car to drive especially after i found out it had a miltek exhaust from the previous owner. 

Just yesterday I started to hear some whining noise from near the pulleys, very light. Is this normal?

Also, i can hear a little pinging as i strecth out the gears. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Was this the one in Wollongong?

Either way, maybe take it back to the dealer; though if they're not Renault dealers (and even if they are) they've probably got no idea. There are recommended mechanics in Sydney and Melbourne, I'd suggest doing this before the 3 month dealer warranty expires regardless.


Also I've no idea what those noises are, so if you're nearby you're welcome to drive mine and see if it's the same

Thanks mate. I have got in touch with Renault essendon who are hopeless and kept referring me back to the holden dealer i bought it from. 

I have just booked it in at Renault in Bundoora on the 16th march. Seems a lot more promising. Still got manufacturer warranty so hopefully should be good.

Would be great if i could grab the names of those mechanics in melbourne aswell.

That's awesome that it still has manufacturer warranty! You got a similar bonus to me; I've got a 2013 trophy+ with two years' warranty left

... And one other one, sorry just going by memory. I'll have to leave the rest up to other forum members. If I remember I'll post it up.

Good luck and enjoy the car!
