Apparantley this is a common complaint with Megane II's!!

My Mum has a 1.9DCi Meg II on an 03 plate and this also suffered with horrible brake squeal too. She took it back a number of times and was told much the same as you were.

An easy and cheap-ish solution is to simply change the pads!! Don't buy stock Renault pads, but try some from a local motor factors. The pads I got for the Megane are made by Lucas and were about 15 cheaper than Renault pads and take about 30 mins max to replace!!

Since changing them a month or so back, my Mum has'nt heard a peep from them

(and has supplied me and her favourite Granddaughter with a couple of Sunday roasts )

Hope this helps
