Re: laguana 11 sport hatchback rear boot problem

Hello, Managed to remove rear boot just a enough with wires still attached to drift out broken pins, luckily I found some alloy pins in the garage that were 5.5 mm in diameter, they were a perfect fit, one end of the pins had a flat head so drifted in new pins then flattend the other end so pins could not come out, Job done working fine, Renault said I would have to buy a new boot as the hinge and boot are all one part.
Just remember if you ever have this problem, it takes a good bit of time to drift out old pins.
Currently in sport richard's garage:
laguna 11 1.6 sport hatchback
