If the vehicle only needs the Seat belt remedial work done then the dealer should:

1: Offer you a courtesy car and keep your vehicle for the minimum 6 hours adhesive curing time..


2: Remove the rear seats and then you can continue to use your vehicle.
The dealer can then carry out the work, You then return at a later date to have the seats refitted..

This is rather tenuous link to rear safety belt BUT in my Scenic the front belts appeared to have been fitted by a myopic French person who was left handed and otherwords my drivers belt has the 'floor' clip inside the belt and when plugged in has to be turned round to fit...the net result is that not only are my knickers in a twist so is my safety belt!!!!!.

That happens with a lot of seat belts, doesnt it??? Usually due to over-zealous tugging of the belt by the clip, and the belt twists as it goes thorugh the clip.

If it is the same as happens to me (usually back passenger seat belts and overzealous kids) then you simply have to try and start to run the belt through the clip but have it folded over on itself and try to run the double thickness fold through the clip....and the clip ends up on the other/correct side.

If you see what I mean

Car will not start

Hi all,

This is me first post everyone, as i have a problem with my Scenic, and i need some help. This may have come up before, so apoligies.

A few days ago i only just managed to start the car up, didnt know why? but it went. Later i had to fill her up and i couldnt get it started, nothing, not a sausage. I can hear the starter motor, but there is no indication to say that there is a fault anywhere. The battery is new ( 4 weeks old) so theres no problem there, as the interior lights all stay gleaming as i turn the key. Did the locking and unlocking door thing, and nothing. There was no life in it today either!

I have searched many forums, and 75% of other Renault drivers that have the same problem, say it could be the earth. It seems to be a common problem by the looks of things. Could this be, or is there a number of causes?

Kind regards

It involves replacing a securing clip on each of the 2 rear seat belt stalks.. The bolts then have a high strength adhesive applied to them and this needs 6 hours to dry..(this is NOT a VOSA recall, but a manufacturer improvement)

You have two options available..

1: Leave your vehicle for the whole day for the adhesive to cure, and get a courtesy car issued..
2: The rear seats can be removed for the modification to be done.. This will allow you to take your vehicle and then return for the seats to be refitted at a later time.. (obviously as long as you don't carry backseat passengers.
I've taken our scenic in for this modification to be done after much phaffing around. The dealer managed to lose all our 10year history with them and had our car down as registered to a complete stranger, not very impressive. On the copy of the worksheet given to me it says Work required carry out ots oanw. Do you know what that means? Is it what we need doing, I'm just worried they'll carry out work that was meant for the strangers car and they're not answering their phone (as usual!)

Many thanks


PS We're definitely finding another dealer after this
