renault clio 197

For sale i have my clio 197, im selling this as a kind of project for someone, i will list the bad areas first so not to waste anyones time. .radiator support is rusted away and needs replacing alto this was just an advisory on the last mot…this is a common issue on clios and they are around 170 quid new from renault. .there is a knocking/rattle coming from the passenger side, on closer inspection it really needs all the bushings and ball joints, track rod ends etc replacing as they are pretty worn and you can feel in the steering it is a little more loose than you would expect a car like this..short mot until September 26th. had 4 advisory’s on the last mot which has all been sorted accept the radiator support. .there are alot of paint chips on the front end from stones etc so the front bumper etc could benefit from a respray but is to be expected from an old car like this. there is the odd scratch and mark here and there on the rest of the pain but over all ntb condition..there is a hesitation when driving around 3k rpm and im 99% this is due to someone fitting a universal o2 sensor. ive had alot of cars that have needed o2 sensors and this is a symptom they all had. these are around £90. .has the typical clio kangarooing when cold. but goes after a few min or if you do what i do and let the car warm up for a few min before driving it is fine. . there is a small bit of rust bubbles on the drivers rear arch but nothing too bad atm, i would personally get it sorted asap before it gets bad. is still solid underneath tho..Slight blow from centre exhaust but should still pass mot as it is very slight.gear knob and steeing wheel could benefit from a change as wheel is peeling and the gear knob leather has come off. the centre console plastics paint is cracking aswell so that could do with rubbing back and respraying or wrapping. .has a sony cd player but doesnt fit very well.. Now for the good bits .New falken tyres around 4 months battery a few months map crank piper cross panel spark oil and filter.gearbox and clutch all feel good no 3rd gear crunch like alot suffer, altho can be hard to get into gear when it is cold but fine after a few min of driving, could probably benefit from a gear oil change.Cam belt was dne at 62k.has service up until 82k then i serviced it myself a few weeks ago at 88k.interior is in good condition, no tears in seats. will make someone a great car when the things above have been done, it is just not for me and having 2 kids and a dog i need a bigger car. i originally bought this as a weekend toy but finances said i had to get rid of my daily and keep the clio as my daily but need something bigger and not so stiff on my poor back lol i recently did a full machine polish only 1 stage just to bring back the clarity off the pain and the shine, it still has alot of swirls etc but it looks a million times better than it did before and has a fresh coat of ceramic wax on it too. has been a great car for the last 6 months i have owned it and have driven it through the welsh mountains and to the beach many times covering around 5k miles in that time,so have deffinently enjoyed it, it jsut needs a bit of time and money into it to make it perfect again. starting at £99.00 goes to highest bidder, i dont have a buy it now so please dont ask or make offers. not looking to swap either as have another car in mind. i will add some more pics tomorrow thanks for looking and good luck this is a private sell and there are no warranties etc, sold as seen car must be collected 48hrs after auction has ended please, no messers
