i Guys,
I have another MORE HORRIFIC, I think anyway!
Pipe from filler neck to petrol tank developed a small leak. Must have been a stone chip or something. Short rubber pipe connecting the two, roughly about six inches long, 2 inches in diameter and straight, no kinks or bends.
Renault part number7701054447.
Two Renault dealerships, same price......£79.98 plus vat - £90!!!!!!!!!!!....both dealerships were equally horrified but stated it was Renault pricing and nothing they could do.
I contacted Renault Customer Services UK and a "jobsworth" stated this was a "Corporate Pricing decision by Renault France and nothing could be done"!
This is quite ridiculous when you see the part for yourself.
However, I thought I'd let you know.
It really is high time this kind of exploitation was exposed. I like my Laguna - part of a fleet of sixteen others - but there is no way I will buy another if this is an example of Renault's spare parts pricing policy.
