Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

The pictures are very helpful - BUT do not relate to the current replacement part. The part shown is Renault reference 8200 647554. Sadly you will discover the if you currently order 8200 647554 - my quoted price this week was 24 - the part will NOT fit your car! Unless it is the latest design.

Because Renault have charged the rectangular plug
connection (black as in the above pictures) to a ROUND
blue plug.
Renault have realised this problem so offer a kit plug
(small) with 6 inches of twin cable - that must be attached to your wire loom - so you can modifiy
the wiring loom. For an eye watering 24.
Apparently 25 minutes in the dealer book for fitting it.
Hence we can expect a bill for around 200.
As alleged above. One suspects that because more work is involved this figure will be increased.
How the hell a bit of wire with a plug can attract a charge like this - Beats me!
It strikes this Renault owner, as though they are providing finance to pay for their 2008/9 F1 escapades.

Incidentally I was at first surprised that an alternative
supplier was charging 38 - from experience usually very reasonable - when Renault is charging just 24 - But then I did not realise the necessary doubling up of the original 'bit!' The new bit is ref:- 8200 673202
Currently in SamWoerth's garage:
