Re: Renault Scenic II - Access the resistor pack in 5 mins.
I accept what you are saying Paul re the resistor, I think that I was looking at the photos of the plastic connector and terminals, which could indeed cause a fire. The example that you quote (electric element) would cause the current to cease in effect therefore removing the source and these are normally insulated from combustable materials.
I replaced one on the Lag 1 it was encased inside an air vented metal box.
Are they different now?
