    20100521_GTX_0003.JPGWe all love this mythical and popular car, because we sailed in one being childrens, because someone in the family had one or just because it always made us want it... because it's endearing, whatever we say.
    Its great success is certainly due to the fact that with a simple mechanics, with little or no electronics, it is easy to maintain by yourself without expensive tools, without forgetting that the parts are not expensive and always easy to find. Even today, for some homes, students and people with "little budget", it is a source of great comfort at a lower price: far from car loans and garage mechanics, which are becoming more and more inaccessible. The small engines models (the most common) are very robust and still consume very little, sometimes less than recent "equivalent" cars, which makes it by definition just as ecological, if not even more by the simple fact that we we always use it instead of buying new ones ... At the level of the official technical control, benefiting from its "seniority", it does not undergo the modern standards much too restrictive, the tranquility is assured.
    Today it is still an interesting car for everyday use, especially and clearly from an economic point of view.
    Collectors are also beginning to take an interest in this 30-year-old "granny": restoration, maintenance or refurbishment, repairs, etc ... make it possible to find "newer than new" models for the pleasure of the eyes and to see this French heritage thus safeguarded.
    We have created this community to bring together all those who are interested and who wish to take part in this adventure to preserve their Renault Super 5, whether by maintenance, repair or restoration: you will find in this community all useful information and tips on these topics.

    The forum is freely accessible in its entirety: there is no need to contribute, buy, neither pay anything to integrate the community and participate.
    To be able to ask questions and share your interest, all you have to do is register and present yourself properly!
    You do not have to have a Super 5: an interest in auto mechanics is enough!

    Welcome !

The forum for dummies

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Super 5 forum!


Here are some basics to know how to navigate in a forum, mainly on our.


I) The rules

There are present in all forums. Few people read them, yet they are essential to the proper functioning of a forum. Here we have reduced them to a minimum so that they are quickly read and easily understood.


In the first place and globally (valid throughout the site) there are the global rules of the forum, which you can find here (and that you accepted by registering in the forum).


Then each section has its specific rules, different according to the section. They are located at the top of each section:





In the case where the rules are too long, they are presented as announcements, in the header of the concerned section, but it is necessary to click on them to be able to read them.



II) The language

You can set the whole forum interface in English by clicking on a button located at the bottom/footer of any page of the forum, called "Langue/Language/Idioma" depending on the current displayed language (default is french). Then choose your preferred language.





If you're interested in some of the french content of the community you can also try to automatically translate it, you can see here how to proceed : 



III) The sections

A forum is usually divided into sections, these sections try to group the discussions by topics so that you can better navigate through them. Our forum is divided into three main sections, which themselves are divided into subsections. The first two sections are mainly in French, but even if you're free to post your questions there, the third section called "International" is dedicated to group discussions in other languages: English and Spanish. 


The main sections (in french)


General: technical topics about Renault Super 5. Everything is there: classifieds, tutorials, mechanical issues & equipment, etc ...


Members: more personal topics like presentations, outings or bar where everyone discusses everything.


The international sections


Spanish: dedicated space for discussions in Spanish.


English: dedicated space for discussions in English.





The english section

This section contains 4 sub-sections:


Tutorials: howtos, manuals, tutorials, and any useful or interesting documentation regarding your Renault Super 5 ;


Garage:  technical questions regarding your Super 5, repairs, maintenance, chassis, interior, electricity problems, etc...


Introduce Yourself: members introductions and their car (see below for more details) ;


The Bar: free talk about anything (within the rules of the forum !).



IV) How to introduce yourself?

This is a very important point because here, as a presentation is not posted it is impossible to write elsewhere, for a simple question of common sense and politeness.


You can introduce yourself into any "Introduction" section of the community (highlighted in the picture below), but if you want to introduce yourself in english, we highly recommend you to directly post your presentation into the "Introduce Yourself" sub-section of the English section.


You only need to click on the corresponding (sub) section:





Please read the introduction rules in the header of this section before create your introduction topic.


Once "inside" the section, to post a new topic you have to click on the button "Start new topic":




A presentation that meets the rules will be appreciated by the community. We require only a correct title (see the rules in the header of the section), the content is free, but the more it is complete, the better it is: model, year, engine, history, etc ...
Photos will always be appreciated, we like it a lot here :D


V) And then?

You are free to do what you want within the limits of politeness and courtesy. We invite you to always do a preliminary research on topics that interest you to avoid duplication (questions already asked), otherwise you can also answer questions from other members, ask your questions, feed the forum, become eventually a professional in computer, mechanics, electronics or just not coming anymore: it's as you want!


Hoping that this first approach was able to help you. But you will see that there is nothing very complicated, you have to dare to touch the buttons from time to time, you will end up learning by yourself how it works.


Good navigation!
