Spoke to a very helpful auto spark and he phoned a friend who is a Renault mechanic and told him that the lead is a fused power lead which feeds the starter motor. Now this guy said this part could be picked up for around £50 but ive phoned Renault parts and they say it is part of the loom hence £450.
As this is basically a fuse thats blown surely there should be a work around.
Ive removed the red plastic sleeve and all it is is the power lead is crimped into this metal fuse/gizmo. I have also removed a little cover which shows where the fuse has blown.
Anyone any ideas as to a work around for this?
I'm sure my Lag2 doesnt have this. I shall check at lunch. I would presume it can be chopped out - I dont see the need for a fuse on the main feed to the starter.
