Well after fitting 2 brand new batteries and now on the 3rd (first 2 were faulty!!!! which didnt help) a new alternator was fitted which at the time seemed to cure the problem BUT the day after during a short ride out the alternator started a whining noise which built up to a screaming noise, the car was put on a low loader and returned to the garage.
The following day I got a phone call saying the car was fixed and another alternator was fitted, on picking the car up I was told that the pulley on the alternator had collapsed, after which the car was running ok but by this time I had lost my trust in it as I have a caravan in the far north of Scotland and do need a trustworthy car, so I did a complete cure and changed my number plate from a 53 to an 08 problem solved!!!! now have a nice Scenic dynamique with full sunroof.
There could be a moral in this for people having problems in that the parts replaced are no better or worse than the ones being replaced, perhaps I was unlucky but there you go.
