(charged on both occasions, but has the £80 diagnostics fee refunded the 2nd time.)

The car will be leaving me on the 20th of Jan, all the paper work is done etc. Will this prove an issue if i contact Renault CSD?


If they replaced the injectors and they didn't last a full 12 months, they should not have charged you anything the second time (unless you decided to give them a good bash witha club-hammer or something). Even if they lasted that long but not much longer, you would still have grounds to claim because these things are not intended to last only 12 months. As Renault dealers, Lookers have certain responsibilities that RCS have some authority over.

Did you have any turbo problems? If so, you need to see if they did everything they were supposed to do when they sorted it for the previous owner and how good it was after they did it. Did the previous owner ever take it back to them because he wasn't satisfied with it?

RCS may ask you to take it to your nearest main dealer for assessment but I rather think, this is going to be a paper exercise if you don't have the car available for them to fix. No harm in asking though.

In case I haven't said so already, you have 110% of my sympathy and I sure wish I had seen this thread before. I can only apologise, for missing it.
