Re: how to tell which model megane

check on the oval plate located on the drivers side door pillar

Oval Plate

The Main Identification of RENAULT Vehicles

Oval Plate is used for identification of RENAULT vehicles since 1909.

The location and design was changed several times during that long period.

In vehicles produced un till 1995 You will find the oval plate in engine compartment.

It is made of aluminum and can be located separate or together with obligatory Vehicle Manufacturer Plate.

In vehicles produced after 1995 the Oval Plate is made from plastic in form of sticker

located on right side middle door pillar. It can be seen by opening front passenger door.

From 1997:
