  1. e-NV200 7 Seat Model

    Nissan e-NV200
    Thanks for the reply and info, 40 mile round trip to our closest one, unfortunately not enough time for a month or 2 to go, but that's a good idea, can't believe I didn't think of doing that
  2. e-NV200 7 Seat Model

    Nissan e-NV200
    Hi All, As our family is growing we have hit a hurdle now with our car, we have 2 ISO fix car seats in the rear of our Zoe which is fine, however my wife looks after her younger brother at least once a week, which means if we are all in the car its a tight squeeze for him between the car seats...
  3. Charging at work

    Renault ZOE
    Hi All, Sorry realised I never replied back with the final outcome, Spoke with an electrician who has made leads before for electric cars, we went for a 32A to 13A adaptor followed by an outdoor extension lead, has been used for around 2 months now with no overheating or issues. Thank you all...
  4. Charging at work

    Renault ZOE
    Seems to be whoever wired our place up just added as many different types of sockets... guess equipment has changed over the years Between 4-8hrs per day I will have access, its not critical if i can't get charging, hence the fact I am happy with a slow charge, plugged in for between 4-8hrs...

    Renault ZOE
    Hi, We have both 32amps blue and red outlets
  6. Charging at work

    Renault ZOE
    I have the BMW i3 charger, not sure how this rates against other ones? Thanks for that, everything will be covered so weather will not be an issue, where the car will be parked there will be no foot traffic over the cable, already sorted ref electric use. Ah, thanks for the input, i would...
  7. Charging at work

    Renault ZOE
    Hi, I have struck a deal with my employer on charging my car while I am at work, now a workplace charger is a no-go, but I have a granny cable that I have for emergencies, while this is slow, I would be plugged in for at least 8 hours, so its ok. Would my best bet be to get an outdoor extension...
  8. MOT failure

    Renault ZOE
    I had the same issue with my Zoe for the first MOT in Jan, thankfully was sorted 4 days before the 4 year cover ended.. MOT centre said that it was the same as a renault clio.. which didn't seem like a good choice due to the weight of the car
  9. Battery Lease Renewal

    Renault ZOE
    Hi All, Just received my battery lease renewal after the 3 year period. On renewal will they offer a better price for your current plan on just keep the same rate? I am currently paying £90 i think per month, I have used around 11,000 a year, so slightly over my limit. Either way I am keeping...
  10. Air Conditioning

    Renault ZOE
    They found the leak, at the back of the system where it enters to cool the battery, should be back with me tomorrow
  11. Rattling noise when I turn on the AC / fans

    Renault ZOE
    My Zoe is a 2014 or 15 with 37,000 miles Had an issue around 2 years ago, which Renault fixed under warranty, I believe this was leak.. I had the same symptoms as you have... my car is now back getting looked at as last month it started again but this time went to a reputable company for A/C...
  12. Air Conditioning

    Renault ZOE
    Thanks for the replies, after talking to the company I went to before they have said that the machine pressure test was carried out, however a hairline crack somewhere might not be detected on the filling up. It is currently back with them to try and find the leak as they said they would have a...
  13. Air Conditioning

    Renault ZOE
    Sorry to post again but after some testing I have found the following; 1. If temp setting is on the blue dot for cold, there is no noise, still cold air though 2. If i turn the dial to get warmer the noise will start, no warm air will come out 3. Also does this with the AC off selected, still...
  14. Air Conditioning

    Renault ZOE
    Thanks for the reply, I am guessing that the pressure reading I supplied is low then? Should it escape so quickly though? I’d expect a slow leak to maybe not be detected during a fill but to lose £200 in such a short time sounds like a big one...
  15. Air Conditioning

    Renault ZOE
    Hi all, Just wondering if someone can help, My Zoe which is just outside of warranty by a few months it had started making a loud noise when the fans were on which I thought was the system low on gas. So I took it for a recharge (£200, almost empty apparently) now 3 weeks later the noise is...
