I have issued a complaint to VOSA who are looking into it, i sent them a copy of the watchdog report and a link to this forum.
It's interesting to see that Renault have paid out for some people, i will update again when i hear from VOSA.
You're welcome and I hope you get some result. As this will effect your insurance premiums in the next few years, I would press Renault to admit liability. I daresay that they have also effected the value of your vehicle inasmuch if you try to sell it and the prospective buyers know it has this history of repair, they are likely to offer less for it.
You must also have paid some excess I suppose. Recover your ancillary costs from Renault, why not?
Anyway, keep in touch and good luck.
