Re: Renault Scenic - Fire risk - Door mirror control

At the start of the year I bought a 2001 1.4 Scenic this had a well and truly burnt out mirror switch. I wasn't aware until I have just come across this thread what a problem this was with the Scenic!

I couldn't see what had caused the swich to get so hot? The hadn't blown and there didn't appear to be any water in the switch.

I bought a 2nd hand switch from the earlier Scenic and have managed to repair the plug. I wraped tape round the plug body filled it with epoxy resin. I cut away all the burnt part of the old switch and then smeared all the pins with copper grease and then conected to the plug so all the plug conncetors where kept in place whilst the resin set. I pulled them apart before the resin was fully set.

Several months on and all is okay? though I know wonder having read this thread wether i's going to be a reocurring problem?
