Re: Renault Scenic II - Access the resistor pack in 5 mins.
I don't know if this has been posted before. I just managed to access the resistor pack in 5 mins, maybe less. Haynes reckon the dash top fascia needs to be removed, massive job. I avoided this.
I simply removed the two digital dash surrounds, then to the right of the digital display is quite a large hole. I shone a torch in here and there in front of my eyes was the connector for the resistor pack. Reached my arm in, disconnected it, have noticed slight burning on connector, so need to replace this. The connector has quite long cables, so reaches outside the dash for repair.
Removed resistor pack with torx screwdriver, appears to be OK, put all back together and is working now. But will need new loom section.
EDIT: See post 17 on for pics.
Have just been charged £440 parts & labour by local Renault Dealer to replace this part after 3 years of persistent poor function in new vehicle. I am now left with functioning AC/Heater but rainwater pouring down front bulkhead into footwells - not our fault say they!!!!
Renault UK deny any COMMON Resistor problems or leaks. Your forums suggest otherwise. Any comments from fellow victims? DocBob
