Maybe there are 200 wires, but it only needs a few to make it start,

New loom from renault would cost a fair price, you could get one from a scrapper, but maybe too new a model to find one available, I personally would strip the entire engine wiring loom and find the wires and repair them,

In all honesty an insulation tape repair wouldn't be very good as their is a risk of water ingress, etc. Some decent quality heat shrink insulation would be a better solution.
Even if a decent auto-spark spent 3-4 hours making a good repair it would be a lot cheaper.

The wiring running round the battery box from the upc to the inj computer is prone to corrosion, specifically a thin yellow/orange wire which is the switched earth for the injection relay which is internal to the upc, worth stripping the battery box etc out, strip back the wiring and have a good look, better than a new loom.

Thanks for all the great suggestions. My mechanic is looking at the situation. Before going into checking wires he is looking at salvage peeps to see if he can trace a 'second hand' loom.

But does this have to be a loom specific to the Scenic II 1.5 dci? Could it be possible to source a loom from a clio with similar engine?? Or are all loom specific to each model of car?

Answers appreciated, I'm all over ebay and very salvage depot in the midlands!!
