I have a 4 year old renault megane scenic and the boot lock fell out last month.

I called renault and they said they have never hear of this happening. I was quoted 50 for a new black boot lock and 17 to have it sprayed to matdch the colour of my car!

I have since seen a few scenics with 'black' boot locks and my friends has also since fallen out.

Does anyone else have this problem and do u know if there was ever a recall on these?

I'd love to hear from you all.

Yes my boot lock button fell out too but I went to Halfords and bought a little pack of 'o' rings and used one to put on the end of the post that goes from the button into the mechanism - you have to take the internal cover off the tailgate to do this but it's quite easy - we did ours in about 45 minutes (once I'd got the 'o' rings and it's been perfectly satisfactory ever since

An old post O know but if anyone searches maybe this will help! Mine popped out. If you remove the trim from the inside of the tailgate and remove the bolts holding the lock you can remove the unit from the door. I found that replacing the plastic retaining ring with a medium gauge florists wire - or any type of wire of sufficient thickness, I just happened to have florists wire to hand - prevents the button from falling out.

Florists wire is great, many thickness' and made of aluminium so doesn't rust AND it comes in funky colours!

scenic boot lock

hope this helps with boot locks.
My friends year 02 scenic dropped out constantly and was permanently fixed by stretching the smallest O ring over the central plastic shaft.

Scenic tailgate button repair

Hi im new to the forum and recently had a problem with my tailgate button decided to pop out luckly i didnt loose it,After a little time i realised this was a very easy fix and only cost pence to fix instead of renaults
This is how i did it and it took me about 1 hour from start to finish.
First get a o ring to replace the broken one and a pack of r pins got mine from motorworld.
remove your inside panels from the tailgate 4 size 20 torx head screws then just pull panel off then disconnect the electrical plug from the central locking motor on the tailgate lock undo the motor from the lock body, Then undo the 2 nuts holding the lock body to the tailgate and remove lock body then refit your button dont forget the spring and grease push the button in and put the new o ring on the back of the button in the groove it is then secure now to make sure you never loose the button if the o ring breaks again.
Look at the section of the button behind the new o ring right on the end of the inside button drill a small hole using a 1/16 inch drill from about the eleven 25 position be careful to go straight through, Now you will need your small r pins pick the smallest that will fit through the hole and over the outside of the back of the button now you have to cut the legs off the r pin you will see why in a minute.Now remove the modified r pin but keep safe and refit the lock body to the tailgate and refit the central locking motor.Once fitted refit the r pin and check it is not catching the button mechanism if ok reconnect the electrical connector to the motor and test then refit all panels removed and job done and no chance of loosing the tailgate button.
I hope this helps im no mechanic and it was very easy and probably worth doing even if your button hasnt come out yet because beleive me it will and if you loose it renault will say thank you thats
