Megane Boot Release

Hi all, new here.. apols if this is in wrong place, cant post in the techy bit..

I just got a replacement boot lock system for my v plate megane at a cost of sixty quid.

Sadly, i didnt join the forum until after the event.
the actual fix cost me less than a penny !!

I picked up a set of washers/o rings from the poundshop, with over a hundred various sizes.. and found a size to fit..

What surprised me the most was that Renault openly admitted that the sell 2/3 per week...!! common fault then !!

But they dont tell you the actual fix is only less than

The only bonus is that i now have a complete spare lock that works and also a spare plastic button that is primed for use to be able to be colour matched..


for the Mods/Admin,

how do i post in the tech bits to ensure the info is placed correctly...?? thank you..

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I've moved your post to the relevant section,you should be able to post your questions in the 'Ask The Experts' section,the other technical section is more for problems that have been solved so you can't start a new thread there.You may find that it takes a while for your posts to appear on the forum for a while though,any new member has there first few posts moderated before they posted up to try and stop unwanted spammers appearing(your not a spammer obviously,but unfortunately the only way to cut down on unwanted guests is a blanket check on all new members).

As for your fix,as you have now found out it is a common complaint unfortunately,but we all only know what we read and what we learn,so you've found the right place to help prevent you spending money you don't have to again.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
