  1. Hi YES do not rule out manufacturing issues lots of us who had a shakee ass megane had problems with rear axle alignment ours did only 6000 miles on rear tyres dealer noticed excessive wear to inner half only at 3000 miles fronts did 22,000 after much arguing by dealer renault paid for new rear axle after that it did about 12,000 miles on rear so while not good a lot better as for the junk theory think this would make wheel now that said rear may have hit something hard a kerb- pot hole whatever your problem maybe convincing renault it is not your fault not sure about junk on hub as this would make wheel wobble and i would think you would notice the vibration from this as for steering wheel not being in centre this is just a matter of adjusting track rod ends correctly this does take a while sometimes and if you are not happy take it back and let them have another go , now when you say car is pulling do you mean if you let go of steering wheel it drives to one side or if you hold wheel in centre it drives to one side in which case car is probably ok JC
  2. Grinding suspension

    HI YES sounds like a dealer job . Why not try a different dealer if not happy where you have been previously ??????? J C
  3. Hi. ROXY1234 as you say tread depth in an ideal world best same but also do not forget different tyres / makes have a different rolling radius for same size of tyre that is to say different revolutions per mile so could in theory upset 4x4 but I suspect this was all taken into account on that drawing board , will I think be more of a problem in locked 4x4??? JC😎😎🥃🥃
  4. Hi Yes i know what you mean I to prefer all tyres same on 4 x 4 but in auto back only comes in if front rotation is greater than rear so if front tyre is larger then it will have to slip more for rear to come in if front is smaller then it will in theory cause rear to work sooner maybe all the time now that said what if you use front only for say ten thousand miles now fronts are worn and now smaller so if you engage auto will it do any damage I would not think so , so the answer is no, don’t worry but I would go fo all same when new shoes needed JC😎😎🥃🥃
  5. AIR CON

    Hi Yes ours has had the no air on screen or centre eye level vents 😟😟 dealer tried re setting it to no avail 🤔 so fitted new unit in to dealers on tues am back out thurs 3 30 pm now perfect well done Kineholme renault Otley Yorkshire👍👍 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  6. Hi Yes suspect if 15 mins listening to radio is enough for a car not to start I would be looking for a new battery and or checking if charging correctly 🤔should do a lot longer than that in my opinion 🙃 how long if you park with PARKING LIGHTS on I wonder????🤔🤔🤔🤔 JC😎😎🥃🥃
  7. Hi Yes socket in front only works when ignition turned on, the one in the rear is permanently live JC😎😎🥃🥃

  9. AIR CON

    Hi Yes ours does not mist up much at all indeed since November screen demister not been working but managed with no real problems now yes as I say we have the same problem with ours no air from centre vents which in our case also means NO AIR TO WINDSCREEN and yes takes along time to demist screen ‘‘tis actually going in to dealer on Tuesday to get sorted hopefully , they say a day to take apart day to put back together and maybe have to wait for part 2or3days in total hopefully back wed maybe perhaps will see 🤔🤔 JC. 😎😎🥃🥃
  10. LED headlights

    Hi. Not to sure footprint is that much bigger on 19” wheels as with lower profile rolling radias is same as 17” wheel tyre set up, little wider Yes but that will be the only difference , for me biggest problem with 19” is pretty much only summer type tyres available no m+s for instance but they do look niiiiiiicccccccceeee and we don’t get that much snow 😀 JC😎😎🥃🥃
  11. Hi. Hello and welcome you will enjoy your new car great car thing to watch check hand book before lifting drivers wiper arm it hits bonnet and can chip paint , it’s in the book, electronic version on renault site if you want to check it out now ENJOY😀 JC 😎😎🥃🥃

  13. NEW TYRES

    Hi Yes in Oct 2015 when first looking ordering Kadjar only 19 tyres I could find were continentals as fitted new 😯😯how many now lots lots lots 😀😀 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  14. HI Just had 4 new tyres fitted on 4x4 KADJAR 1.6mm left on both rears and 2mm left on both fronts all 4 original contnentals and have been moved front to back think about 9000 miles 16520 miles on clock now which considering i drive slow and smooth this i think is not good last car did 40,000 on 4 again a 4x4 (renault koleos ) now point of this post only done a bit of local driving BUT the new shoes are in my opinion lots quieter at 40 mph with window open than continentals with window closed much much less noise new tyres have a B rating for economy and a B for wet grip and 68 dB noise tyres fitted ROADSTONE EUROVIS SPORT 04 225/45ZR 19 96 W extra load paid £100 each will post on wear and motorway speed noise levels JC
  15. Hi Your welcome 👍 hope you get sorted soon JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  16. Hi Yes true RAC do this for Renault I believe should be a sticker on car with TEL number ours is on screen but suppose up to dealer as to where to put it. tel 08000858005 or 03332023005 think both free phone good luck JC 😎😎🥃🥃 MPs think you will just need reg number when calling
  17. DRIVING ON THE CONTINENT

    Hi Maybe depends which lights you have on your vehicle ??? 🤔 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  18. Hi Yes as I say bump start go to work and then call assist may fix at work or take to dealer for you??? JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  19. Hi Is clicking sound near glove box or could it be from under bonnet 🤔🤔 might be worth checking battery leads 🤔🤔. are tight but dealer for you if leads are tight warranty job me thinks recovery worth a try might get quick fix while your at work????? good luck JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  20. Diesel or Petrol

    Hi I have to I am not sure about this particulate thing but something for all to think about in2009 I bought a koleos 2 litre 150 bhp engine now this needed to be driven at a constant speed for as long as it took to clean the filter think I did this once maybe twice in six years and 90 + thousand miles no problem really now if I had bought same car with 2 litre 175 bhp engine it cleaned the filter as you drove in any situation no need to drive at a constant speed and both of these were renault so maybe saying Nissan has x is maybe not so relevant , maybe we all need to try and find out what system is fitted to which KADJAR as if my previous experience with koleos is correct 1.5 and 1.6 KADJAR may well have a different system just had a thought has any body looked in the hand book ???? JC. 😎😎🥃🥃
  21. Diesel or Petrol

    Hi Yes ours is 1.6 4x4 particulate filter on ours just cleans it self when needed at idle in traffic town driving motorway makes no difference don't worry about it. We had a koleos it needed a constant speed for 10 20 mins or so JC😎😎🥃🥃 Ps. stevieboy I would try another dealer if you can't get a sensible true answer from yours 🤔
  22. Hi Yes once or twice ours has not worked as should new batteries in remote solved it for us seems to be quite fussy about batteries cheap ones are useless for some reason , fit Duracell to be sure and don't forget , switch or similar parts WILL be under warranty 🤔 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  23. Kadjar 4WD owners

    Hi How long is long term we had a koleos New in2009 did just under 100,000 miles in 4x4 no problems but remember 4x4 is not permanently engaged only comes in when front wheels rotate faster than rear that is in auto , in lock it is what it says 4x4 50% front 50% rear but above about 20 mph it unlocks and returns to auto mode 😀 JC😎😎🥃🥃
  24. Hi tempus what , what does that mean??? sorry have not mastered my native English yet only 66 so may have time , or maybe not , time is running out perhaps time for a brandy me thinks😀😀😀 JC. 😎😎🥃🥃
