toxic fume filter

Renault is now fixed took it to a main dealer and three coils were replaced one was faulty they suggested that I replace three which I did. Is replacing all three the normal practise? Anyway thanks for the advice.

I suspect that the coil that went was one of the back ones.To change these,you need to remove the inlet manifold,so whilst the manifold is off,it makes sense to change all three at the back.It works out to be expensive now,but you will save money in the future as what usually happens is once one coil gives problems,the others tend to follow at regular intervals.At least now the rear coils should be OK,and the front coils are only a five minute job to replace.

Good advice and practice from a Renault dealer......Wonders will never cease!

Glad to hear you've solved your problem,happy motoring.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
