Re: Arggh. flipping Renault Prices!

you have to remember that reno dont do stripdowns of the electronic handbrake unit (even though it is do-able) just to replace both handbrake cables. thier customer service book simply says replace complete system. (thier internal service book probably says just strip it down and replace both cables)

if you had taken it to a small indy garage thats experienced with Reno's (with a CLIP or VAG diags unit) they could have simply just ordered new cables and redone it (ALL) for well under half the price if not more.

(sorry, i fully aware that hindsight is always keen to give you a mugging(much like ANY BRAND of dealership))

always get a number of quotes for servicing, shop about! there is always yellow pages if you dont have time to drive round all the local garages.
Currently in mord's garage:
