Why couldnt the dealer tell me that?.
He said that renualt have an obligation to ensure replacement parts are readily available for their vehicles (no matter the age), and if a car is off the road due to parts not available, they will manufacture, and during that period they will pay the dealer a daily ammount to provide the customer with a hire car. He said this would be paid out for as long as it takes, obviously, renault could (and have in my case) take a hit with this, but " the financial loss is less important that customer satisfaction".
So all good on that front, apart from the fact i am still 2 weeks from getting my car back!!!

thaks fo rall your help guys, john
Great stuff, at least now you know that you wont get a surprise bill at the end of it for the hire car rental !
