If not,there is a very strong possibility that the unburnt fuel that went down the exhaust pipe whilst you had a coil failure would have damaged the cat..Cheap aftermarket cats are available for around 150,but as with all things,you get what you pay for.

Let us know the outcome.

Edit;I certaintly wouldn't ignore the light.The cat will eventually start breaking up,and could block up completely,and thats a right kerfuffle!.
Hi again! Pleased to say that after a reasonable journey in the Clio, the emissions warning light has now gone out, and all is very excellent! This seems to bear out a previous thread I read that said the sensor only polls the ECU once during a journey when certain conditions are met.
Want to thank the forum for saving me at least a couple of hundred quid on my first visit! The info on Sagem pencil coils , the date stamp & general stuff on changing them was invaluable. The replacements I got were from Eblag trader TRANSITPARTSUK, cost 10.99 + delivery. They work asolutely fine, though I was a bit nervous as they seemed so well priced.
Thanks again.
