Question about Renault 18I

2 Answers

I have a 2002 renault laguna, every now and again the cluth pedal stays in the down position and the car struggles to go in gear, once i lift the pedal back up into the normal position the clutch works perfectly, for approx 30 miles or 1 hour then it may happen again and you notice it because the gear change goes notchy.

As you say it is possible to refill the sealed type of hydraulic clutch pipes fitted to the laguna with a little care from the dry break joint mounted on the gear box housing. The problem being that a little air in the system becomes compressible unlike the hydraulic fluid. This air bubble rises to one of the two high points within the master cylinder pipe run where it can't escape. (1), By releasing the pipe within the engine bay (gearbox dry break joint to bulkhead) and holding it upwards in a straight-ish line to enable the air to rise to the top, before refilling. (2), just above the master cylinder the pipe goes up and over the brake pedal shaft (RHD cars) before running below this shaft to the left hand side of the bulkhead where it passes through to the engine bay.

Note I was also lucky enough to break the plastic ball joint on the clutch master cylinder to pedal. For this I was able to fabricate one out of metal which should be more substantial than the original.

Regards
