    Good day, all.

    After servicing my Duster yesterday and having to buy certain parts from Renault at an exorbitant price, I would like to know if there are any European or other online shops where I can buy a service kit for my 2016 Duster 1.5 dci.

    Please share which online shops you use. It would be much appreciated

    Thanks
    Luke

    My 2019 Duster's foglamps are scratched and opaque. The previous owner probably drove it in sandstorms or something.

    I know I can get them polished out, but am looking to fit decent aftermarket units. Does anyone know what size these fogs are? The previous models seem to be 4".

    They have a proper glass lens vs polycarbonate like on the headlights, but they still get scratched with normal dirt road travel. Let me know how you polished them.

    Anything this close to the road is going to get scratched.

    I'd just replace the globes with LEDs. If you are serious about fog lights or want to look different to the oncoming vehicles, choose 3000K (golden yellow), which actually penetrate fog better than white or blue-white bulbs. Going with LED, you should be able to find 4000 lumens vs the OEM 1200 lumens. Gen1s accept H11 55W (and the much weaker H16 19W).

    You said that you have a 2WD. So, I can't advise switching to AWD. You've also mentioned AT tyres. Have you switched to them yet? The OEMs are more a road tyre.

    So, for those of you who have always wanted to see behind the Duster's bumper, take a look. My car is in for repairs. The workshop updates me with a photo of every stage of the process.

    Sorry to hear about your prang. I trust that the repairs will go well.

    Good time to rust prime paint the exposed bits.

    Not too worried. Just stoked it's getting repaired. The bodyshop it is at is one of the best in town, so really happy. I'm sure they'll do all the can to prevent any rust.

    Fortunately, being a teacher has helped during this time, since I am still on leave.

    I grew concerned about our wading depth when seeing all the flooding in Kruger and the Kalagadi.

    I didn't want to smell any gear dope / tranny fluid in the cabin if I ran it up the C pillar, like some do, but I did want to increase the wading depth. So, I finally purchased and installed: 6mm fuel hose x 5m from Midas & 3.2mm vacuum hose x 4m from Goldwagen.

    I pulled off the OEM tubes. The first pic is the thicker rear breather on the rear diff. The cable ties hold the OEM clips along the transverse pipe. Pull the hose off to one side out of the clips. The clips at the breather top spread open together with your fingers and all can be reused.

    Second pic shows the top clip closed and empty.

    Insert the new tubes. Note: Imperial to metric is never perfect. I had to spread the larger pipe overnight by inserting an ever widening needle / long nose pliers before I could insert.

    Excess length is more easily stored at the rear rather than in the engine bay. I did loop some above the tranny connectors.

    I removed the fuel line cooler tray (third pic) and ran the two new breather pipes along it while attaching with plastic ties along the way. Then re-installed the tray.

    I ran the tubes across the back engine mount and below the downpipe to avoid its heat, then up into the engine bay and secured with more cable ties.

    To the end of the smaller front breather hose, I inserted the recently pulled off cap from the OEM hose. The fourth pic shows the old front breather of rear diff on the left and the new one with smaller inside diameter is at the bottom. The upper pipe is the larger pipe seen on left of the last pic. The connector pulls apart from the old pipe. Be sure to add saliva before pushing on the new pipe as it is a tight fit.

    Last pic show that I ran both rear lines next to the front tranny breather so that all breathers are at the same level.

    Now, I need to provide a water seal where the electrical connector enters the rear diff and for the connector immediately above it before I can truly say that I have increased the wading depth height. I might, in DIY fashion, just use a thick coat of Vaseline and cover it with duct tape.

    They are very efficient. It has to go back for a bumper slider fix, but overall, I'm happy😁

    The job better be good for R31k 😂

    Hi Everyone.
    I received my new 1.5 4WD Duster and I am quite impressed even though I've only done about 300km. Could 4WD 6speed owners please provide feedback on the following? In 6th gear from 100Kph it sounds like the gearbox whines. Is this normal or should I be concerned? (I've set the 4wd selector on 2WD). Thank you in advance.

    It's one of its documented quirks. When I bought mine it did it from new. I complained at the dealership who had it checked out by an independent gearbox specialist, who reported "all in order". I did extensive research on the subject and could not find any reports of catastrophic gearbox failures.

    Enjoy, its great value for money. The only reason I sold mine is because I got a VERY good deal on a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk that I could not pass on.

    Hey Ludi,

    My 2x4 2015 DCI duster does the same for all the years. I think it's just a torque drone on the bearings on 6th... I get it in 5th and 6th when accelerating on the highway. I don't notice it when everything has heated up. It's mostly when I've left home and hopped onto the highway and accelerate up to speed when I hear it... but throughout the journey it's quiet. 80k KM later gearbox is still good.

    Thank you JmanSA. I am eager to get the first 1500 km (running in and keeping revs below 2500 rpm) done so that I can drive "normally". The short 1st gear took some getting used to but I really like the car. Looking forward to many happy km's. Planning a trip to Kgaligadi (have not been there yet) for later this year.

    Mine does the same, although once I had the alignment sorted it quietened down a lot.
