I did mention this to the guys at cluster repairs just to make sure im not flushing more money down the drain and they told me that all componants got to the with the display are changed not touched up ad this cuases more damage, thier menthod ensures a 3 years warranty. £120 plus removel and refit is damn cheap or very expensive for a touch up, when did you get yours repaired?

Thanks for the update on the " Fix's " Folks.

Hopefully other Members will find this useful who have similar problems.

Yes I agree Renault should be doing something towards resolving this issue.

Keep us updated with the " Fix's "

My dash flickers, but when I disconnect the - terminal from the battery and reconnect it comes back fine, I just have to reset the windows.
My mileage jumped from 64K to 70K. A local mechanic who services renaults says this shows that she was clocked......
Anyone any similar experiences.........
I'm gonna order a new display but i cant help but think she may have a more serious electronic issue......

Sorted mine out after the dash kept on flickering and the clock resetting. i did the same and contacted renault who said the cluster needs replacing at a cost of around £500.
well i was not paying that so i got out my soldering iron and traced the fault after many attempts to a dry joint on the Voltage regulator which is located on the pcb under the grey multiconnector. its a black component about 1cm square it is one of the large parts that is laid flat on the circuit board. i resoldered it and everything seems to be ok now. it was a little tricky but i have sorted it and thought this might help some of you guys who might be having the same problem.

Hi folks!

Ford, just to clarify before I unsolder and take off the grey multiplug connector on the circuit board, you do mean that this component that you had a problem with, is directly beneath this connector, and that you had to remove the connector before the component was visible?

I cant actually see anything beneath the multiplug (it would have to be very thin), however adjacent to the multiplug when the pcb is removed from the housing is a coiled wire component about 1cm square, is this what you are referring too m8?

Just a quick update, as I know how frustrating it can be to come across a problem similar to your own, but not to see a solution.

After removing the dash lcd panel, and stipping out the circuit board, and finding nothing evident to pinpoint the cause of the problem, but satisfied that the problem was in the lcd panel somewhere, I contacted a company by the name of ECUTesting, located here

The panel was boxed up for shipment and the company contacted on Monday, they organised pick up of the item, which was late Monday afternoon. And today (Wednesday) it was delivered back to me. 5 minutes later it was back in the car, all working again. Total cost including the shipping was £239.

Hope this may help some others with the same problem.
