If your car is having trouble staying at 9 o'clock on the temperature gauge or is cooling off when travelling down long hills, chances are your thermostat is sticking open or opening prematurely.
This is the ideal (and cost effective) solution - the famous Renault 5 thermostat modification. Simply pop this thermostat in the top radiator hose and you'll be back up to full temperature in no time at all.
The thermostat is supplied ready to fit from the box - no modification necessary.
Quality items from a premium brand such as QH or Valeo (depending on availability, no cheapies!)
The kit now includes 2x Genuine Jubilee clips of the correct size to re-attach the pipe after fitting.
If you have a particularly 'hard' top hose, you may need to use a little lubrication (washing up liquid is ideal) to fit the thermostat.
List price: ~£45 (OEM thermostat)
2 Year Warranty on this kit.
A customer (thanks Andrew / James Crow!) has made a rather useful video on fitting here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nBkwdDqwH8
If the thermostat housing in place at the back of the engine is leaking, you'll need to change this - luckily we have a revised version here: 75 / ZT Diesel Thermostat (V3)
