Hi there Gary, and welcome.

Rotten luck, I know for a fact that it takes a 'special' kind of person to damage someone's car, and then drive off.

According to DuPont, it can be any of these possibilities. Since I don't know what year your car was made, I'm including all years to help narrow the selection process;

  • 396
  • 1995 - 2011

  • 131
  • 2001 - 2001

  • 394
  • 1999 - 2004

  • ENG
  • 2007 - 2011

Also, for your info, all the colours listed above (except the 396) need a white primer, the 396 uses a grey primer.

I would also finish off with a clear lacquer to aid blending in with the existing paintwork.

If you are undecided about the colour code, a call to Renault Customer Services with the car's registration number will confirm it.

If I can help advise with any aspects of the repair process, please don't hesitate to ask away.

Best wishes,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
