My Scenic II

Hi Folks,

Since purchase I have had a no of problems with my Scenic II, Initially with the brakes,
Excessive brake squeal, soft & excessive pedal travel, rear right pad not sitting against disc properly only showing half the wear pattern, imbalance in braking , crunching noise from front brakes, judder under braking, at slow speeds sometimes you feel car is not going to stop.
Rear wiper cutting out
Front wipers hitting bodywork
Press clutch, press start, engine just whirs does not start
Stalling when hot
Cold running very rough stalling
Child locks/ rear windows immobiliser not working
Glove compartment light not working
Blue vent cover missing from glove compartment
Clicking from steering column
Clear plastic protectors at rear wheel arch bubbling up

Most of the above faults have being resolved apart from

Brake squeal they said we would just have to live with it
Soft pedal excessive travel, changed pads, greased brakes, changed brake master cylinder, bled system removed air from rear right, still a problem
Pulling was down to road camber
Crunching from front front brakes they said was the ventilated discs
Starting problem press start whirs never heard of it
Cold running, stalling Its because of our climate & Renault are working on a solution & all Scenic IIs are like that and we should leave it running for 5 minutes before moving of from cold

The car has been in the service dept for a total of 28 days, I have previously contacted RCS not a great deal of help.

I am now awaiting a meeting with the Branch General Manager of the supplying dealers any advice tips before I meet him or has any one had the same or similar problems
