Re: Renault - Clio 2006 - Spare Wheel

I have a new shape Clio (06 plate), this spare wheel contraption has been a nightmare from day one - every mechanic that looks at it can't believe it and has never seen anything like it! Well, last night I was stranded on the motorway with a flat tyre. If it wasnt for this contraption I would be able to change the tyre myself with no problems. Anyway, out comes the AA man, and is another guy shocked at what he finds in the boot of my car! He says he has seen new shaped clios and has never come across this - have renault changed it since 2006??? We couldnt release it at all (after an hour of trying) and in the end it had to be smashed apart to release the wheel. So I now have a wheel in my boot along with various bits of plastic and metal!

Im awaiting a call back from renault to discuss this with them - not sure i'll get very far though!

Anyone dealt with renault on this issue before?
