Renault Clio 3 1.4Dci 2010 - Driver's Side Repeater Light Holder - MOT fail

My Renault Clio 3 has just failed its MOT test on the driver's side indicator repeater bulb on account that the 'bulb holder has excessively deteriorated'. I was informed by the guys who conducted the MOT that the part should only cost 15 or so if I took it to the dealership.

Looking at the part the plastic itself does seem to have corroded a little with the plastic connector (where the bulb plugs into) looking worn.

Speaking to Renault I was shocked to get the response that it would need an entire new door loom, clips and membrane which combined with the 1.5 hours labour would cost me around 365.

Does this sound right to people or would it be possible to bypass the plastic piece and find an easier way to connect the bulb? If I have to pay then I have to pay but for obvious reasons I would prefer an easier solution.

Thank you for any help you can offer me everybody!

Have you seen this unit,, have a look on tbay,
Buy a second hand unit complete with bulb holder, .
Then its connect into the loom, cover all wires with insulation tape,.
As long as the loom is secured and can not interfere with, or drop, and catch anything, then it will pass.
Might be worth giving Renparts a ring, explain what you are after.. sure they will help you

One of the most wonderful things in life is to wake up and enjoy a cuddle with somebody; unless you are in prison.
