    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 here 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 !

I have a pair of vents just above the radio in the centre of the dash which I guess are fresh air vents, just cold air, is it possible to close these off?


There is a wheel to the left of them but I still have cold air coming through whatever way it is turned, and it's getting bloody cold!!



J'ai une paire d'évents juste au-dessus de la radio au centre du tableau de bord qui, je suppose, sont des évents d'air frais, juste de l'air froid, est-il possible de les fermer ?

Il y a une roue à gauche d'eux mais j'ai toujours de l'air froid qui sort de quelque côté que ce soit, et il fait très froid !!

Hello Mark,

I have actually the same problem with my car, it is because the rubber seals behind are probably cooked by years and sun... Since a few years now I have blocked it with gaffotape. Not very aesthetic but efficient enough for winter !!  I entend to do better soon, when I will remove the entire dash board to fix the heater system. I will tel you then when that happen.

Cheers !

You have 2 tutorials treating the problem:

This one, the pictures are missing:


And this one, it is for the Super 5 console, but it is the similar way to do for Express:

" You have 2 tutorials treating the problem:" (je ne pas comment faire pour extraire un fragment de texte, alors je fais par copié-collé. Comment cest-y-qu'on fait? Je suis très nul en ordi!)


Merci Totojest pour ces liens. Effectivement c'est plus simple ! Hélas je dois de toute façon bientôt démonter mon tableau de bord pour cause fuite radiateur... d'origine ! Je roule depuis quelques temps avec le bouchon du vase d'expansion un peu dévissé (mais retenu par un élastique!) tant j'en avais raz-le-bol de refaire le niveau ! J'avoue que l'hiver pour la méca j'y vais plutôt à reculons !! Et en plus les plastiques froids... Mon garage est une grange chauffée par les piafs...
