    Vehicle : Exclusiv


    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2006

    Default Few Questions

    Hi everyone,

    I've been searching eBay/PH for a while and I think I've finally found 'the one' lol its a 56 reg 1.8 Petrol on 64,000 miles in Black for £2,890. I'm going to see it tomorrow and I'll hopefully be getting it on fiance if he still has it in stock.

    Now I don't want to bore you with the amount of problems I've had with the Clio but I've practically bought it twice over.

    With it being on 64,000 is they anything I should watch out for? Belts etc etc?

    Cambelt is due at 60,000 miles according to Autodata - make sure this, the tensioner and the water pump have been changed. Listen for any rattle from the top end of the engine when starting (and possibly when ticking over) this is a problem with the cam solenoids. Not vastly expensive to fix though. Just listen out the usual knocks and rattles. Rattles from the back on rough ground are common - upper control arms. From the front it tends to be suspension drop links.

    Just give it a good going over and trust your judgement.

    Edit - the cambelt interval is 60,000 for the non VVT engine, I can't find the VVT engine on Autodata to check that one for you, sorry!

    Cheers, what about Electrical? Nearly all the problems I had with the Clio where electrical and very expensive to have fixed!

    Its the VVT Exclusiv and its just had a Full Service and it comes with a FSH too, it just feels like the one if its sold I'll be devastated lol

    Cambelt on the VVT engine is 10 years or 100,000 miles. Electrical wise, just press everything. The electrics on Vectras tend to be pretty good to be honest. Heater blowers sometimes only work on 4, 1, 2 and 3 do nothing. That's the resistor and if you can use a soldering iron it's a couple of quid to fix. Window switches that sometimes work and sometimes don't is normally just dirty contacts and that can be cleaned yourself with some nail polish remover and a cotton bud.

    All I can really think of electronics wise!
