Failed display in 04 scenic

Renault originally agreed to replace it free of charge as a 'gesture of good will' but they have since said that they wont do it. The company i bought it from also wont shell out as they say it is not covered under the warranty. Renault wanted the best part of 500 to fix it, the new part being 341 + vat. If i was you i would get onto Renault and see what they have to say.

Good luck
I had the same fault today - no display at all ie speed, mileage. time - all missing. I called Green Flag and they told me it was illegal to drive it. The GF man jammed some cardboard under a connection to the display and it worked but the mileage has gone up by 7000 miles!! The cardboard wedge needs frequent adjustment. The two renault garages I took it to said it was not an uncommon problem. It will cost around 500 for a new display when the mileage will be reset to ZERO!! How will that affect the resale value?? Surely the manufacturer has a legal duty to ensure that that recorded mileage is maintained?
