Hi Kev,

Throttle Sensor was replaced (at a cost of almost 600 - on a car bought from new on a '51' plate that had done less than 30000 at the time = I was not impressed in the slightest, and the garage was made fully aware of this!) and the problem with the car not revving above happened AFTER this.
The car was returned to the garage where it was tinkered with, and was returned to us working perfectly (which mad eme think that perhaps MAYBE it wasn't the throttle sensor at all and that if they'd done what they did when it was returned to them FIRST, MAYBE the problem would've gone away)
The car is still going, but it's also had a water pump replaced and had the Cambelt changed = total spent on the car in the space of 3 months was 1100!!

The car belongs to the wife and she's gonna do the sensible thing and not recommend or buy a Renault in future.
Currently in virtual_analog's garage:
Ford Mondeo TDCi 2.0l
