Is it really necessary or just another Renault ploy to rip the punters arms and legs off so they can plug it into a computer for a few seconds? Hopefully I'll get rid and buy something "normal" before anything that should be simple like a bulb change has to happen, but it would be good to know in advance - God knows what could happen tomorrow.
Me thinks Mr Haynes have their info wrong. Last year I took my car into Renault to change my Xenon bulbs and they didnt re-initialise the system for me !
The only I can think Haynes are talking about is the self levelling aim for the Xenons thats linked to the suspension via a computer.
