In the Scenic II handbook they advise against parking the car other than with the front wheels facing forward, I believe it has something to do with pressure on the steering locking system which can distort/bend a pin ?

I have heard of a few with Scenic II's owners cars needing repairs carried out due to a distorted/bent pin, not sure did Renault introduce this to the handbook after a number of warranty claims
