Re: Modus Fuel Filler Flap will not open

Just an update to this saga, contacted Renault CS & after bit of *****ing they agreed to cover 40% of cost of replacement flap release solenoid which came to just over 50 inc parts/labour - sure not a fortune, but enough for something that should last the life of the vehicle. pays to complain to Renault CS about anything which fails before it would be reasonable to expect it to - and on all too many Renaults this seems to be the electrics!

Also recently on my cd/radio the 2 channels started hopping between left & right so got a replacement from the local breakers, stuck it in and guess what - exactly the same - doh!

What was that I read in an earlier post - "electrics salvaged from a skip at the back of a Fiat factory"...unfortunately about right!

Currently in stevegun's garage:
