Decided to give a mobile mechanic a ring and he turned up with his diagnostic kit (Laptop based)

within a couple of minutes he diagnosed a defective n/s front sensor and an intermittant o/s front sensor fault.

So it would seem I am the unluckiest guy in the world after all.

The better news is Renault charge 38.00 each for them and thats a lot less than I was expecting.

Got to wait till wednesday to get them.

I'll post again when I have changed them and before if fit it I will measure the resistance as it might help someone in future.

Thanks everyone.

38 is better than the 75 I paid for a Citroen sensor. The problem with the sensor was caused by it being squeezed by rust where it fitted through a hole in the hub carrier. If yours is the same it might be worth cleaning up and using some copa slip.
