Hi, I was quoted £42 each by a local Renault dealer. However the independent garage I got the 02 Megane off fitted a used one to get me bye. Incidentally if a
has become faulty causing a dashboard message, then even after fitting another one, a computer will be needed to rest the car's management. Some independent garages have this equipment. I understand the dealer's computer does not tell the engineer which pliug or
is faulty - usually start at no. 2 though (front- second from left)
After reading the manuals, apparently when one goes, producing an emissions readout, the rest follow thereafter.
So I got a quote - DIY - £168 per set.
WARNING - the screw holding the
is small - if you get heavy handed the head will break off. With care the job is easy though.
On the INTERNET (
), only one outfit was offering them £65 a set, including VAT, delivery overnight. Plus THREE YEARS warranty!!
These have now been performing well for two months, and my garage has bought some too. The company also carries a vaste range of components for other makes also. We found their service fantastic. Needless to say the
are brand new, but not stamped with Renault brand.
Only minor problem is, you must ensure the clearance angle when fitting the plug next to the
filler - No 2.
