Can anyone confirm this before I fork out another fortune.
Rubbish, have a look at the EPB thread. Basically if you get same part number from a scrappy It'll work.
Different number, needs re programming, but will still work. Just needs CanClip or DDT2000 & someone who understands Renault, rather than believing heresay.
