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....
