Now fixed ......

..... so I called my local Renault dealer and asked how to access the back of the lamp assembly. After a short discussion between themselves and an intake of breath between the teeth (you know what I mean ), they said "sorry - can't tell you over the 'phone". "Why not ?" "Because if you get it wrong then there'll be come-back on us" (Its only a headlamp bulb for f**ks sake!)

So I took my car into the dealer and watched them change the bulb. Well, they don't have to remove the bumper as they had told me before - just the battery cover. Then its done by feel from above with the bonnet up and inside the engine compartment with a lot of cursing for good measure.

Why can't Renault say that in the manual instead of recommending you to a dealer to access the headlamp? You expect there to be a secret way of getting to the lamp.

Next time your Scenic headlamp goes pop, just find your nearest registered blind person. They will be able to change your bulb in a jiffy.

Renault only employ mechanics with incredibly long, matchstick thin, double-jointed arms just so they can access areas on your car that you will find impossible to reach.
