  1. No Airflow to Windscreen

    Thanks for your reply. I was hoping it might be something simple, by it looks like it might be a visit to Renault.
  2. I was driving my Kadjar yesterday and noticed that the windscreen wasn't demisting. I pressed the windscreen clear button on the Climate Control, but apart from making a loud blowing noise, there was no airflow at the windscreen. (My Kadjar is a 2016, 1.6 dci, Dynamic S, 4x4)I put the flow downwards instead and got airflow, but when I redirected it upwards, the downwards flow stopped, but still nothing at the screen.Has anyone else had the same fault, and was it easy to fix ? At this time of year it could be quite dangerous driving without the windscreen demister working.
  3. Thanks for the replies. Shame it wasn't a real update? But at least I've already got the latest version. Cheers.
  4. I got in my 2016 Kadjar for the first time in 2 weeks this morning, and received two messages saying, there's an update for the R-Link 2, which will improve traffic information and new maps. I've never seen that before on the R-Link, so thought "great, it must be something big". When I logged into the R Link Store on my laptop, I was disappointed to find there were no updates available. Has anyone else received these messages on their R-Link 2, and was there an update ? My current versions are: Navigation : MM2014 Feb 13 2017 Base content : 2014_12 Extra content : 2015_06, 2017_06, 2016_12
  5. 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 ?
  6. So, two replies, one saying Hands Free Mic, and the other saying temperature sensor, which were the two suggestions I gave in my question. So I still don't know what it is, for sure.
  7. Thanks for the replies. It just seemed like an odd bit of plastic to be a temperature sensor.
  8. Does anyone know what this little black button/ knob/ sensor is? I was thinking thermometer or something to do with microphone, but not sure. You can probably see, its in the centre console above the mirror.
  9. Track information from DAB radio

    I took my Kadjar into Renault for a Firmware update, but was told I had the latest version. Renault Connected Services replied to me saying : I am sorry to inform that the update has been delayed by the developers.The god news is you won't need to book your car in for service again, since the update is being made available for download on the R-Link Store directly. Meaning you can do it on your own computer at home.Unfortunately we do not have an estimated date for released yet, but if you would like I shall keep you informed and notify you once it comes out.
