    European Auto Car , Batt St Penrith, Ben an Denton Christie, really nice guys and know their stuff.

    Another guy, his name is Paul, works with Damen Beak (Peugeot/Renault car yard, cant think of its name) they are on Victoria Road .... heading towards the city, at Gladsville, near the Ryde pools .... just past the Squash court ... on the left hand side.

    I can highly recommend European Auto Care!
    Then there is Colliers on James Ruse Drive in Granville as well!

    Daniel has you on the payroll then?

    Drive shaft boot and brake hoses aren't rocket science, any competent mechanic should be able to fix these at a reasonable price. We aren't talking proprietory expertise required for those two items. But if you are aiming to keep the car in the long term then building up a relationship witha good Renault mechanic wouldn't be such a bad idea...just don't pay through the nose for the privilege.

    Matt, whilst you are at it,have a look at the other three flexible hoses,located at the front wheels, and two for the rear axle.If one is gone,there is every chance that the other 3 will be shortly behind.This is an easy job,that anyone could do (even me!!!), and will actually improve your pedal feel.When I incarnate a new fuego,one of the first things I do is replace all the flex brake lines

    Matt asked if we knew of any good Renault mechanics and I only know of two. Yes Colliers are expensive, but they still do a top rate job!
    My first choice when it comes to major mechanical jobs would be the guy's at European Auto Care, which is why I mentioned them first.
    A few years ago, Renauli on Toongabbie Rd would have been on top of the list, but unfortunately they no longer exist!
    But the jobs that Matt described, I would do myself!
    Cheers Renomad

    I wouldn't be taking the thing to Colliers or to any specialist for stuff as simple as that. No offence intended to you Renomad in relation to the Colliers dig.

    No offence taken! As you've said it's fairly straight forward stuff, any local garage should be able to perform this type of work if Matt does'nt have the time or will power to do it himself.
