Re: laguna 2 fuel tank strap rusted off

Guys I know with other marques of motor have used existing straps as patterns to make new straps which has so far been successful.

Be careful working under yours cars, some Renaults, like my '04 plate Espace, had suspension spring coils which broke without warning (more frequently when parked), the small spring cups weren't of sufficient diameter to give any support when the spring broke, usually at the pig tail of the spring.
In my case, the car dropped so low the jack wouldn't fit under it - there was no survival space at all.
