  1. This is whats happening

    this is what's happening i have decided the problem here is choice some of the members can't decide a simple concept of voting, looking at the view rate to votes, well it doesn't take a genius to see that. so i am deleting my posts the vote, the domain choice everything. the two members have registered their domains and are building the sites they wish to offer. members will be able to choose the site they want from what's on offer. when they are completed this will be up for 1 week after that, i will stop modorating this site, I will be moving to the new site and invite everyone to come with me. i invite all members to copy the topics they feel are the most important and paste them to the new site. crap posts will be deleted i have copies of all the pdf and links to video files and will be posting those to the site, so its the members images that need to be moved. i will put links to the new site around the old one so people will know where we have gone i will send MM my resignation and that will be my job done here. I have been offered an Admin post on the new site, this i am considering at the moment. this site might keep ticking along until the fees are due or it will crash. without moderation this could be sooner rather than later. I have done my best to keep this site going and its the best option i can offer. i would like to thank you for the support you have given me over the time I have been Moderator. Shedder101

  5. This is whats happening

    one week in and the vote was pitiful, its as if no one was bothered, well thats ok it was still democratic. I have now resigned as your moderator and taken the position of admin on the new site effective immediately . i am moving to https://renaultkadjarforum.com/ and i recommend you do the same. the core membership on this site are the best i have known on any forum, they are helpful and tolerant and i would welcome you to the new site to continue to give your advice, whether you own a Kadjar or not. I want to thank you for your understanding over the least few months i might not have answered as quickly as i would have liked but i have done my best, working with one hand behind my back. so they say one door closes and another opens, well lets all open the door on the new site and i await to welcome you there.

    no the site is still here, this is what's happening i have decided the problem here is choice some of the members can't decide a simple concept of voting, looking at the view rate to votes, well it doesn't take a genius to see that. so i am deleting my posts the vote, the domain choice everything. the two members have registered their domains and are building the sites they wish to offer. members will be able to choose the site they want from what's on offer. when they are completed this will be up for 1 week after that, i will stop modorating this site, I will be moving to the new site and invite everyone to come with me. i invite all members to copy the topics they feel are the most important and paste them to the new site. crap posts will be deleted i have copies of all the pdf and links to video files and will be posting those to the site, so its the members images that need to be moved. i will put links to the new site around the old one so people will know where we have gone i will send MM my resignation and that will be my job done here.

  9. Polish's, Wax's, Whats your choice ?

    best i have found is Auto glym wet wax wash the car, rinse off spray wax wipe with a microfiber cloth, do every panel as if your drying off, glass plastic don't mater then when you have finished buff of with a clean cloth, sun overcast it matters not a jot even in the winter Whole car done waxed in less than 45 mins lasts a good six months i find resin wax a little abrasive its good on older paintwork but modern paints and finishes needs new waxes. never take t cut to a new car clear coat it will strip and allow moisture through
  10. AIR CON

    has anyone checked to see if the vents are open ?
  11. this post has been approved by moderators but we have know idea what problems if any this can cause. UNDERTAKE THIS AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION WE TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT
  12. New car??

    i am sorry to say only in the USA can you complain a car is older than stated you cant buy a 2018 car made in 2017 its sold as the old model, hence the mega sales towards the end of the year to clear stock. in the UK and europe a cars age is denoted by the registration plate, ( when its first registered ), it doesn't mater when it was built. Way back British Leyland had fields full of unregistered cars up to the wheels in water rotting away and they were all sold as New , again from the reg number. is it fair? well no but car mfg getaway with it over here so they dont give a oss then there is the lemon law .......
  13. Renault Kadjar boot space

    Several post have been deleted due to bad language. will members please report any further problems with this thread Shedder101 Mod
  14. indeed they do and sometimes that's why main dealers are cheaper than an independent, however independants live in the real world so get to know whats easy and what to avoid. main dealers when they quote your job, quote it at there labour rate, that can be from £75 and up my local Renault dealer charge at £98 +vat so if the books shows a job at 100 and everyone knows it takes 300 you will find the independent will quote the longer time but there rate is cheaper
  15. main dealers do get paid from the companies when warranty repairs are needed but not at the rate the get from joe public. they get whats known as book hours, at a basic rate therefore if they are doing warranty work they cant have the cream for service work. book hours are set by industry in how long a garage can book for a particular job. It covers everything down to bulb changing, hence the girl at the front at reception can give you an exact quote for any job you want... so if door seals take .14 they work on decimal time 100 to an hour, to complete that's what they get paid. in real life it might take longer they cant claim more. the only one the book ever got right was, in my opinion, the replacement of the starter motor on the Renault 5 turbo they allowed us to book out 24 hours on that job
  16. How do i update maps?

    thats it, i give up on this car with 18 months left on the lease its the bloody last one i am getting had the latest firmware updated tried to upgrade today, i have the file i did what it said nothing happened called customer service for a truly classic comment, me hello i am having problems with my rlink accepting updates... her,, mmmmm rlink problem, there's not a lot we can do with that we recommend you go back to the dealer. so bugger the rlink i care not a jot it plays my music and sometimes answers the phone not that it works particularly well, if it was mine it would be out and replaced, as it is i am stuck like most with it.

  19. 55 litre petrol tank took 58+ litres

    there looks to be some problems with this topic, posts from members are needing approval if you use a quote from Dave4774. there is nothing wrong with this post that i can see, it might be the backend software see something, who knows? i have PM Dave4774 to apologise and he is going to re post his post, edited down a bit, hopefully that should cure it. alternatively.... start a new topic and go from there Shedder101 Mod
  20. Driving Eco Screen

    Hi all filled the car up today didnt need to but i thought i give her a treat for the new year. my eco score hovers around 84 -85 but just fetched the wife back and got this when i got home. can anyone better this
  21. Hi All I want to take this opportunity, before silly season takes full hold, to wish all members old and new a very merry, pain free Christmas. this year has seen a marked improvement on new members and I hope everyone has found the information useful. All the best from shedder101
  22. Warranty issue?

    first thing they will say its been done by a pressure washer so its your own fault. please state the handbook does not state not to wash wheels with a pressure washer then its a defective coating and there fault they should order a new wheel. had something similar with honda
  23. Hi all had a peculiar dash warning this morning, Low Tyre Pressure. I have had it before when a rear tyre showed low pressure it dropped to 1.9bar topped it up , the end. today same warning popped up i thought it could be the rear again but no, both fronts showing 1.9bar when i last looked they were 2.3 N/S/R showing 2.0 O/S/F 2.2 where i left it a couple of months ago. i topped them all to the correct pressure, I will have to keep an eye on them, checked all the tyres for screws etc. has anyone else had sudden pressure drop
  24. Tire Pressure Warnings

    sorry have to disagree with that, nitrogen is less dense, where air will eventually leak out of the tyre nitrogen wont, also you dont get the pressure fluctuation as you do with normal air, thats why its used in F1 and other sport when you need to keep the same pressure hot or cold
  25. Tire Pressure Warnings

    i have done long trips and yes tire pressures increase a slight amount nos .4 bar also on new cars they are mostly filled with nitrogen that doesnt move at all
