Have you checked the 2 pin connection that the LED light is connected to? I have noticed that sometimes the 2 pin connector can get furred up with corrosion over time (A bit like copper wire going green when moisture get to it) - you could disconnect the light & give the pins a clean????

If you decide to go for the replcaement option, your best bet would be to either go to a local breakers yard & get another brakelight from a clio there (could get them to test it before buying it) - they may however want you to buy the whole spoiler rather than just a part of it - I've never been charged more than 30 for a whole spoiler!

You could always find a spoiler already removed and "pick one up laying about" ;o)

Alternatively look on eBay - a lot of people have removed their old spoiler/brakelight to replace it with a sportier one - most probably go for about 10! (cheaper than Renault - just make sure you contact them first to make sure they can guarantee All Leds are working!)
