Re: megane convertable problems

make sure there is power going to the pump it may be a fuse have you had a look at them first, there is also 2 relays i hear for the roof ,if all is well and there is power etc listen to see if the pump is working if its working but just clicking its pos the plastic cog in the pump has broken they can be replaced without buying a full pump it was a common problem on ford cabs as well

The night has fallen, the day is done,
The moon has taken the place of the sun,
Close your eyes snuggle up tight,Angels
Will watch over you tonight

I have just bought one for 50 from ebay , just have to fit it. Most I seen was 150.

Have tried various fixes according to forum advice but none worked.
Hood piston lost pressure during cleaning process -since then no response except bleeps.
Local garage tell me that I need to consult Renault dealer for a diagnostic check ??
Why can't independents do this - is it a question of not having software ?
Renault Dealers prices outrageous for a straightforward item like this!!
You need to put the roof in the exact position it was when it failed. If you miss a step of the sequence out it doesn't like it. I found that out as when I got my 51 plate one it never worked. I moved the roof around and then I got the Tauneo* cover to open and close electrically, just stopped when the hydraulics took over. I will hopefully have it fitted over the next week or so to test it.

I am fortunate enough to currently have 2, the other being the one for sale, so I swapped all the relays over and they worked on the other one ok. That is why it pointed to the pump as this was the only bit not working. I did take a while to get the cover moving though to figure this out. I used that guide on here, the seven step one to resetting the roof.

The Hydraulic unit look a right PITA to fit, might get a price for fitting if i can't do it. I just need some instructions.
