Been a while since last posted on this one so thought I would share what the actual problem was. Main dealer said that one only part it could be would be the water pump. So agreed with them that if they took it out and it was not that they would pay otherwise I would pay. They took the pump out and stated that the pump was faulty. Duly paid the bill and asked for the part, on inspection I saw the the plastic impellor and cracked and so when under no load it would work normally but under load it would just spin cauling the engine to overheat. Phoned Renualt and spoke to their tech team and we agreed that this was a fault of their making and not wear and tear. Renault agreed to pay a substantial amount to the cost of that repair.
