It appears to be stuck and it I have tried to shut it by driving it forward with a screwdriver but it is locked up.

The local agent and the Haynes manual say they are not servicable and even worse I think they come as a pair. The local NZ agent said they have replaced one under warranty but the price of the unit was around NZ$5000 - more than the value of the car!

Anyone had this problem?


I have the same problem with my 1998 Scenic Megane. Having given it a superficial look my dealer wants 50 to have a proper look which would require the car to be kept for a day and can't give me a quote for the work until he has had a proper look. I find it hard to believe that a Renault garage would not be aware of this problem and be able to offer an estimate of what it would cost to put right.
