Hi L2O. RCS would only go to a maximum of 40%, this was a good will contribution as apparently my car wasnít covered under the yellow OTS. In the end I had to give in and tell them to go ahead with the work as I desperately need the car back, driving 50 miles a day in and out of London in a Caterham with no heater was getting a bit much.

So last week I picked up the car and the dealer kindly relived me of £1192.68. I also had a new EGR valve fitted which RCS contributed 20% and in credit to the dealer they did do a few extras which they didnít charge me for.

When I have a little more time on my hands I plan to start writing a few letters to RCS .

If you are thinking of doing it yourself try this website for the turbo at least.

I used them for front disks and pads and all went well, but they sell New and reman turbos at what seems to me like reasonable cash.

Was one of the few websites/companies that was able to tell the difference between the multitude of part available for this wagon too...

hope this helps a bit.

good luck if you try it.. i'm really not looking forward to mine going.... 42,000 and counting...

  1. Replace oil supply lines and fittings. These lines often become plugged with decomposed oil which restricts oil flow and drainage.

  2. Do not used silicone or thread tape

  3. Make sure all openings to turbo are open and not plug or capped off.

  4. Shut off fuel or disable ignition and crank the engine for at least 15 seconds or until oil pressure is raised

  5. Allow engine to fast idle (1,000 RPM) for 3 - 5 minutes to seat turbo seals

  6. Always let engine idle for 3 -5 minutes before shut down, otherwise the turbo will continue to spin without oil lubrication and pressure

  7. When changing oil, be sure to prime oil filter

Thumbs up

OK I been in contact with the guys from Germany on this subject - who in turn are in contact with the guys from Greece..

"Hi Stu,

just got an answer from two guys: is in German, but they say if the car is
- not older than 5 years
- no chiptuning
- not more than 150tkm
- all small and full services are made (servicemanual is stamped by a garage)

German garages need to contact German RenaultNissan branch in BrŁhl (sub of Cologne) to check the "yellow OTS" in Renault Net or ask a clerk for a release.

Exchange Turbo Fans: my Austrian Colleague has good connections to a Greek Turbo specialist, he will ask him for a Diesel Turbo replacement and prices and I will forward the infos to you. They just replace the fan not the case, this should be inexpensive than replacing all the stuff...
There are Austrian Specialists, too. I will check the infos first...


Best Regards from Germany
-- Franz "

So are all UK cars which meet the above criteria subject to a 100% free contribution from Renault UK ?

PS;- Many thanks Franz and crew
