4.0 out of 5 stars Better than nothing (or having to dig through Renault's official information), 6 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I awarded 4 stars only because of the electrical wiring diagrams (which are very well done, being lifted from the Renault documents) and the last chapter about how to prepare for the MOT tests.

Don't get me wrong, the book has a lot of information but not necessarily the kind you would expect to find in a service manual you paid for. The phrase " ... is best left to a Renault dealer" appears FAR too many times throughout the book and there is absolutely NO information on OBD-II -- as if the book was written for the hardcore mechanic who absolutely hates anything electric. There is NO service information on the automatic gearbox other than "Renault knows best". There is no mention of properly locking the airbag computer before attempting ANY work around the airbag, which is basically inviting you to have an accident. The photographs are all black and white, with poor contrast (which is caused sub-par typography, I'm sure the original photographs were top-notch) and show dirty parts! Some of which are so covered in road grit and oily slime, you can't make them out from the background.

It's a fun read for a Renault afficionado, but has no place in a serious service setting -- be that DIY or a small workshop.

5.0 out of 5 stars A one-man-show in the kitchen, 6 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works as advertised, wife is happy with ease of assembly, use and cleaning after use. Loves the fact that it also has a blender so she can prepare smoothies AND a salad or mince at the same time.

The gasket in the bottom of the blender requires some attention when refitting after cleaning the parts: it's the same colour as the base and if you're not mechanically inclined it's not going to be obvious it's not seated properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifesaver for bleeding motorcycle hydraulics, 31 Dec. 2013

This review is from: HAND HELD VACUUM PUMP (Misc.)
Does what it says, quickly. Would have probably liked to have pairs of bleed nipple adaptors (instead of singles), to make bleeding dual-caliper setups even easier, but it's way better than manual as it is right now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea but poor execution, 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's nowhere near an actual juicer and doesn't even come close to the lemon/orange juicer attachment that comes with the food processor. I see where the designers came from but they missed some essential design points such as what to do with the pulp? For now, it accumulates unevenly in the basket and makes it wobble and vibrate making everything a mess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Right tool for the job, 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As is always the case with OEM equipment, it "just fits" and does the job wonderfully. The connector is waterproof, as you'd expect from equipment meant to be mounted on a motorbike and the lead is long enough to get to the nearest power supply connection.
