Alternatively it was maybe the subject of a technical bulletin (O calls? or something like that they are called) and Renault wanted the box back? ... Maybe one of the RTE's can shed some light on why a lot of this kit is replaced rather than repaired?

Just a thought
Cheers pal i would not like to foot a bill for one of those boxes thats for sure but as i said the person that had the the car from new had it done under warranty lucky for them
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
