This brings me to my next point, As explosive devices, It is an offence to send them through the post, most couriers wont touch them so narrows your search.
I know that, and I have found them near me, so I'll collect them myself.

As your asking how to do it, This would lean me to say DONT ATTEMPT IT YOURSELF.
Thanks for the warning, but I'm ok with handling them, although I won't

I have a guy in the Renault dealership who is willing to help me with the reset, however, I'm a bit wary as they could attempt to plug me a new unit.
Chassis legs are straight, because u had a side impact, the guy collided with me @ some 110 km/h or so, and he hit the wheel and my door. The car skidded for some 80 m (according to the Police), and I ended up hitting the ground on the side of the road, I destroyed a traffic sign with the passenger side.
The driver's and the passenger doors were ruined, some rear panel bodywork and one rear window. I found everything at the breakers, the car is functional and the rest is in the process of repairs.
