Re: Renault Scenic - Fire risk - Door mirror control
I was pointed to this thread by Horatio as I was asking how to remove a powerfold mirror. I am bothered by a couple of things from reading this thread.
1)I have a 1999 Scenic and I do not remember receiving any recall notices in the 6 years I have owned it. Did I miss out somewhere?
2)I have now just bought a 53 plate Scenic II and today noticed a burning smell and smoke coming from the mirror switch. Took the switch out, or at least the top half as it fell apart when I was getting it out of the door trim and saw that it had burnt out inside. The connector seems OK, but I can't really see inside the door trim as the wires attached to the switch are too short to pull it out of the hole.
Is the recall only for the Mk1 Scenic?
It seems there is an issue with the MkII as well. Not surprising as the switch looks to be very much the same.
