  1. I took my car (2016 Kadjar 1.6 dci dynamique S Nav 4WD) for a service at Renault Cardiff last week, and was told that the rear brake pads are down to 8mm and 5mm. The car is only 2 years old, with 14500 miles. I don't understand how the rear pads can wear this badly in 2 years, as I would have expected the front pads to wear quicker (10mm each). I been in touch with Renault Customer Relations, who have contacted the garage, and told me that the brakes are fine and don't need to be replaced yet (even though they gave me a price for replacement, £133), and they just need to be checked again in November (which the garage didn't tell me). I did have my car serviced at the same dealer last year, and the brakes were fine. Since that last service, I've only done 3,500 miles. Surely the rear pads shouldn't wear quicker than the front, and if they are the pads are either substandard, or there's an issue with the system. Has anyone else had problems with rear pads ? And what did you do about it ?
  2. Map Update Data, 2 versions

    Thanks for the reply.
  3. I finally paid Renault £75 yesterday to update my Kadjar Maps. I did the update this morning, but I seem to have 2 versions installed now, 2015_06 and 2016_12 (see attached photo). Is this normal ? And are these the latest maps available ?
  4. R-link 2

    I know exactly how it works, and it regenerates during normal driving, so sitting in the car with the engine running should not be a problem. There is nothing in the handbook that says this should not be done.
  5. R-link 2

    What a load of rubbish ! Are you seriously saying that you can't sit in your car with the engine running ? If it was a major issue Renault would be telling the customer when they bought the car. I often sit with the car running, while waiting to pick my son up from school. I can't see how this can be an issue for the DPF.
  6. R-link 2

    Does anyone know what was updated ?
  7. R-link 2

    Have you got an active subscription? I have the same problem, with no connection, but Renault say it's because my subscription has run out.
  8. R-link 2

    Cheers, that makes sense. I'm currently I discussion with Renault to get an extension to my maps.
  9. R-link 2

    Are you sure you've had the map update? Mine looks the same, but I didn't get any additions maps. I just did V2.2.19.200. My maps have expired.
  10. Unable to connect to R-Link Store

    No, its not, but when it asks you to connect, it says it's free anyway.
  11. I've update my Rlink 2 software to, but I'm now unable to connect to the R-link store, in the car. If I click on Apps, R-link Store is greyed out. I then click on "Connect" and it asks me to enter my email address. When I do, I get the message "Connectivity cannot be activated for technical reasons. Please try again later". I've tried it several times during the day, and different locations. Any idea how I can reactivate R-link?
  12. R-link 2

    I did put the USB Stick back into my computer, but no further updates available, and no option to reactivate rlink. Rlink toolbox was running. There is no sign of a map update to v16.12, but it has updated to (from 642449), how do I know if it's v16.12 or not ?
  13. R-link 2

    Ignore my last message, I just tried again and it worked. I've updates to and I now have radio text :-) The problem I have now though is I need to connect the car to it's network. When I enter my e-mail address to connect, I get the message "Connectivity cannot be activated for technical reasons. Please Try Later" Has anyone else seen this ? and will it work eventually ?
  14. R-link 2

    I entered my VIN number, but the box goes red, with no messages. Does this mean I cant get the update, or am I doing something wrong ?
  15. My Routes App

    My R-link 2 updated the My Routes App today. Now, when I go into the app, a message flashes up that says : "couldn't find config file in the backend" Has anyone else seen this, and is there a way to fix it?
