I think the deal is that Renault will replace the bushes if they fail an MOT up to the cars 4th or 5th birthday..I suspect your calm words () to Renault persuaded them to replace yours as they were close to failing the MOT.

It's a bit strange that the MOT tester wanted to fail them and then decided not to.Maybe he decided to phone VOSA and they said that a bush has to be completely shot to fail a test..It is one of those things that testers quite often get wrong.A bush that is de-bonding or splitting is not a reason to fail a car....
