  1. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    Browsing through the German forum, came across a thread discussing the proposed facelift. Updated model rumoured to be available late this year. Changes to body sculpture front and rear, and addition of the larger r-link screen. Couple of pics ....note the colour coded mirrors. And don't those seats look all fabric? Mind you, no 'Bose' speakers and sunroof, so probably just a test vehicle.
  2. Interior light fuse

    No worries....I guessed that you had missed my initial post as you are always very helpful and normally very quick to respond
  3. Interior light fuse

    Sorted the problem, had to remove the glovebox door to access and replace the fuse...what a pain. Auto headlights must be on the same circuit because it cured that problem as well.
  4. Interior light fuse

    I jumped in the Kaj this morning, and noticed the courtesy lights didn't come on. The Vanity mirror lights also fail to illuminate when opening the covers. I went to remove and check the interior light 10A fuse in the glovebox fuseholder, and unlike in your photos darenh, the fuse is too high up to even see, let alone access. Despite amazing the neighbours with the various contortionist acts I performed trying to get access, the glovebox door stops me getting my head low enough to see the top of the fusebox. I can only see as high as the brown connectors with the red wires, not above it. My question to you darenh....Did you have to remove the glovebox door?? I am also guessing this problem with the interior lighting is related to the 'Check Automatic Headlights' error message that appeared at the same time.
  5. Brand new, picked it up on 22 March.
  6. Just ordered these, LED replacements for all interior lights. There is also an option to buy Number Plate lights. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Renault-Kadjar-LED-Interior-Kit-Premium-SMD-10-White-Light-Bulbs-Error-Free-Set/282416442996?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649
  7. OK, repaired the dome lights, and found out that the most recent Kadjars including mine already have interior LED lights (that was what the mini pcb was). So do NOT purchase this LED kit if you have a recent build Kadjar!
  8. I've received them, but haven't got round to fitting them yet ....Oh well, I may as well admit to my epic fail - I did start to fit the dome light ones, but cocked up the simple task of removing the light covers and ended up with a mini pcb from one and both button springs flying off and ending up between the drivers seat and the centre console! Managed to retrieve them, re-fitted the pcb, but now the buttons don't function. However, I have successfully fitted the window auto close module and the electric tailgate! (Thanks darenh for the very useful 'how to')
  9. My New Motor

    I believe he opted for the Lifeshine (protection) treatment from the dealer. When you have this, you get a bag of Autoglym goodies as part of the deal.
  10. Kadjar Facelift 2019

    Seems it's definitely happening....see this link (note the shark fin antenna) https://www.motor1.com/news/237061/renault-kadjar-facelift-spied/amp/
  11. charging a macbook pro

    You are best off buying a twin port USB charger that plugs in to your 12v DC outlet. You can pick one up for a few pounds.
  12. My New Motor

    Picked up my Kadjar (also had it 2 weeks) from the detailers today. It has had the full paint treatment and ceramic protection, including the wheels and interior. Looking good I think. Whether it still looks like this a few months down the line is another question!
  13. New Kadjar finally arrived

    3 months....I ordered it in December, and was given the 1st. March as an estimated delivery date. The bad weather, and the fact that I changed my colour choice put the delivery date back 3 weeks. It left the factory in Spain on 24th February.
  14. Finally collected my factory order Kadjar Sig Nav Tce165 today. Titanium Grey, Parking pack premium and side steps. Very happy so far.....(Don't you love that new car smell). No obvious build problems that I can see (yet). Android Auto fired up with no problems which was my main R-Link2 concern. Early days, only had it a few hours so need a while to get to know the ins and outs. I fitted a QQ+2 17" Spacesaver wheel and ditched the gunk the Kadj came with. The BOSE subwoofer fits perfectly in the wheel. I would never have known to do this without the very helpful and informative posts on this Forum!!
  15. New car??

    Did you do a factory order (normally a 3 month+ wait) or was it a stock car? If you ordered a bespoke new build vehicle, and the build date is verified as April 2017 then I would say you are well within your rights to reject the car
  16. daytime lights fault

    I was hoping to be in a position to answer the last post, as I should have picked up my new Kadjar today, but zilch heard from the dealer. When I rang him, he said 'be patient', he will contact me as and when it arrives. A bit disappointing, was given the 1st March originally, then today, but it's not all bad - they gave me a trade in price on my current car (15 plate Insignia) back in December, and they will honour this price regardless of the mileage added until I hand over the vehicle to them on collection of the Kadjar.
  17. Dab radio

    There are indeed DAB radios that have on board storage and are capable of pausing/rewinding live programmes. I don't know whether the Kadjar radio has this capability (a few days yet before I collect my new Kadjar) but I do know that this feature isn't standard on all DAB receivers, so would guess the answer is no...
