    I have a 1998 renault megane and when I turn the key (i don't even have
    to start the engine) i get this intermittent knocking sound from the
    dash board. It is 3 knocks every ten seconds..The only way I can
    describe it is as 2 light knocks and then the 3rd one sounds the same
    way the glove compartment would sound if you opened it and let it
    drop...It then stops for ten seconds before starting again.Does anyone
    know what this could be?
    It comes from the passenger side dash..at first i thought it was in the glove box but it appears to be above thebattery near where the wiper electrics are...

It is the air conditioning unit/ fan. When this is left on you can sometimes hear a knocking noise because the bolts have worn down...a common fault with meganes

It`s the timing belt ticking it`ll adjust itself over time, meganes use oil driven tappets and take a little while to warm up so will be a bit tapety when cold.

Megane Coupe knocking from Dash when Wipers turned on


Sounds like the wipers are over working or not secured properly, This can over work the motor for the wipers. Try checking the bolts connecting the wipers and the blades on the wipers for good contact this will be a good starting point.

Renault megan scenic 1.6 auto 1998 .start up drive ,does not change gear ,stop when warm restart drives ok ?


This sounds like you have a pressure fault, these gearboxes suffer from pressure solonoid failure, take the car to your dealer and have it scanned, this will show the fault, it is not an expensive job, but if left it can turn into one.
