Rob go very carefully on this one!! My Scenic 2000 burst into flames last week and has been declared a total write off. It's all down to the door mirror control switch according to the fire brigade who were in attendance to the fire. I am currently processing the issue with Renault UK as I believe it is a fault in the design / manufacture of the vehicle electrical system. They are due to inspect my vehicle on 5th July and I would love to hear more from you on the matter. The worst part of the situation is, because the door mirror electrics are permanently live with the ignition off, the fire started with the vehicle parked on our drive.

I would be grateful if you took this up with Renault UK also as it will add more clout to what I know is a common problem. Their number is 08000 723372. The customer service manager is Alex Phelan and is dealing with my claim.

Please contact me via email and I will send you photos of my burned out Scenic
