Donald - this should work on your beast as it's a similar vintage.

Now it doesn't work at all. I shall get a price from Renault in the morning - probably some stupid price I expect!!! I shall report back.....
Ah cheers Hugh good luck i would think for sure that there is one on yours so fingers crossed, make sure you have a good old feel around ,cheers Donald
