Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

Today my daily Renault 18's timing belt snapped. https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpt1/v/t1.0-0/q85/p280x280/12115471_1219968728030390_195947282793069662_n.jpg?oh=1900c26bf9021ef3395d7779ef17e2ef&oe=56F6108E Wasn't too worried as got towed back to the unit and jumped in the 340. That also broke...

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

Fitted some lowering blocks and cut the front springs the other day. One slight issue, offside handbrake cable is rubbing off the back of the rim, I'll try cable tying this up but it's been suggested this may not happen with 14" wheels that I'll be fitting soon. Also got a bit of a rough idle, once ...

Re: New user clutch shagged volvo 340 1.4

You'll really want the diff welded too.
It's unpredictable and harder to break traction with the open diff.

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

The gear change on my 340 is very good. This doesn't feel quite as good, but, it does go into all gears now. I thought it might be the clutch plate sticking onto the splines, the car hasn't been used much this year I don't think. You can dream Jon, though, I can't really talk as I need a drivers sea...

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

It seems to have free'd up now, perhaps it was through lack of use? (Had been sitting a while).

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

We have a page on facebook called "Retroshite" and various people message us offering cheap cars, this was one of them! I'm not sure what the gear issue is all about, I can't see any linkage being noticeably snapped and it goes into gear fine with the engine not running. I tried adjusting the alumin...

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

I was quite attached to the Polo as had owned it a while but this is much more usable, and I've got a real soft spot for the 300 series.

B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

Yesterday I swapped my Polo GT for a MK2 360 Saloon. My Renault 18, which is my daily driver at the moment runs out of MOT on the 1st of December and needs both sills and a rear arch replaced. So, in the mean time, I really needed a car to get me through the winter. I was hoping to get a 240, but wh...

Re: Electric wiper glass motor

It's possible I may have what you're looking for - somewhere.

Definitely buried in the depths of hell but I've just bought a 360 saloon with a broken offside window motor, so I'd likely be digging them out to find one to fix my 360.

If I find the nearside one, I'll let you know.
