Just a thought, everyone goes crazy at Renault when something like a high pressure pump or injector or pretty much anything else packs in, it's worth remembering that they don't actually manufacture the parts themselves, try writing to Bosch or Delphi or Siemens and tell them that their parts are substandard, or even complain to Tesco or Asda that their fuels are garbage, see how far you get, also the dealers dont make that much money on parts, maybe 20% or so, sure labour is expensive but that because a high pressure pump is a ***** to fit, did the dealer explain that for warranty purposes they have to replace the timing kit and aux belt and any high pressure pipes removed while changing the pump, im not saying the price is necessarily justified, just hoping everyone realises that it's not always a simple case of them being ripped off!
