Re: abs units can we swap with other units


We have a Renault Laguna Dynamique DCI 120 5 Door Hatchback 1870cc (2006) Diesel and have sent our abs ecu off for repair and have been told this morning that the 3rd processor is faulty which is the only one that cannot be repaired, the other 2 can be repaired - typical!

i have sourced a 2nd hand ebs ecu on t'internet and it has matching numbers so my question is - is it worth following this option or just paying the price and going to renault, can my husband fit it, he took the old one out or does it have to be done by renault for the sake of "electronically introducing" the new part.

Hope that makes sense, sorry if im being a plum, we are looking for the cheapest option and with hubbie having a mechanics background "although out of the game for a couple of years" he is happy to do the work if he can or alternatively send it to our usual (non-dealership) garage.

i have just been quoted 525 inc vat for diagnostics, supply & fit from renault.

thank you very much for your time
