I spoke to the RTE I had previously spoken to and he said its the first one they had seen at that dealership, and it more commonly seen as a Clio2/3 problem, but added that Renault warranty had wanted the parts returned to them for further examination along with the lower rear cup mounts, hence the replacement of those parts as well.

A result without an arguement ... must have been all the positive waves coming from Ottoman ... Cheers.
[COLOR="Blue"]Great result eh, I am glad it worked out fine for you just a bit concerning that a car of that age and mileage should require a repair like that, As you see quite a few Espace's flying up and down the motorway fully laden with the Family's most precious assets strapped inside ...Kids, Really glad it all worked out tho no arguments or long drawn out process before any resolution found.

My Espace has done almost 70,000 miles (its an 05 plate) and not had anything at all like this.

I cannot see anyway this could not be under warranty...

Hi NicWood, they usually hide behind "fair wear and tear" I has a similar issue with my last Espace where the springs were diagnosed at 50K miles and 3years as weak ... Renault Extended Warranty refused the claim, I had to get an engineers report ... they still refused, eventually after moaning at the dealer and RCS they picked up the bill between them, but it was a struggle .... suspose I was just looking on the dim side because of past experiance.

Still all fixed ... shouldnt say it but thats nearly 3-weeks ... DOH!

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
