5 Door Hatchback Boot Release known fault...

Boot release button fails...
it pops out from its mounting...

Renault charged £68 for new release mechanism plus whatever their labour charge is...

Cheaper fix...

Get Haynes manual...
got to Poundland or similar shop... buy a box of "O" rings / seals for a quid...

Take the boot release in hand and you will see there should be an "O" ring near the end of one of the "fingers" on the release button.
If its missing replace it with a new one. Refit boot release and voila !!
Took me about 30mins !!
