Just wanted to publicly thank Dave for all his behind the scenes help and advice. Top man. Thanks to the forum as well
For me this won't be over until I have a car back on the road...I am working with Renault and the insurance company on this, and RUK have provided a hire car in the meantime. (thankyou!)
Out of interest - any legal eagles out there want to offer a perspective on the manufacturer's liability/responsibility in a case like this? i.e. where they perform a recall but some vehicles have already been destroyed by the safety fault.
Keep the switch in the off position!
