Hi Cliodiesel, despite what Renault tell you the Clio2 and other models Megane1 etc, all have similar door lock problems
... its an internal spring that breaks ...
Your right they are like the proverbial rocking horse droppings to get in from a breakers, but I'm surprised at the price you were quoted, as they are £84.62 including VAT from Renault before any discount (I know I've just replaced one and got 15% discount
I'd also be surprised if you get anywhere with
as most of the cars with this problem seem to be 1996-2001 (from the posts on this forum) so they are way out of warranty and any problem will be seen as wear and tear.
As a point of interest, when I went to get the part the parts man said "a Clio" when I stated I wanted a rear door latch for ..... so they do know about it .... the date on the parts bag was 5/8/2007 ... so not in stock long ... wonder why
Hope it helps
Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
