To be honest, its a moot point whether it was done by a previous owner and paid for privately, or done by renault and the paperwork wasn't processed. The point is, did you purchase the car privately, or through a dealership?
If it was a private sale, then its tough luck if its a shoddy repair, but if the car was purchased via a dealer, then you have redress under the sale of goods act even if the warranty has been invalidated by a repair which has fallen below expected standards.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
