No need to remove the cable tie as far as I can remember.

If you look at the last pic I attached, you can make out the cable tie on the left hand side of the plug plastic cover, this cable tie holds the loose cables onto the plug body after they exit the moulded rubber of the loom . I guess that is the one you are thinking about.

So when you get the loom free from the ECU just check that no cables at the back or underneath were also damaged by the "Tamper Proof" cover.

I have this exact problem with my Clio and need advice please!
For a few weeks now the electrical warning light has been coming on at low revs and often the car would cut out. It would start up again and eventually the light went out.
Went in today to a local independant garage for mot and service, and I mentioned it to them.
They told me some of the wires going into the ' coil pack' were worn and touching, and had taped them up to try and stop the problem. Their customer service and work on the car was excellent, except...
When I drove it home (they dropped it off at my work) it was misfiring/juddering really badly at low revs, and idling very badly.
Sounds like the same wiring problem? I haven't paid yet and they said bring it back if any issues, so I do trust them. I'm hopeless at diy so what do I need to say to them? Am I looking at a new wiring looom? There is a renault specialist (independent) near me but I don't really wanna use him, would rather go back to same place?

A good auto-spark - ones who good at soldering, insulating, etc should be able to make an effectuve repair. It takes quite a bit of skill and patience to get it right

Cool - so they've tried 'taping them up' which hasn't worked as it's misfiring/juddering like mad. So what do I need to be asking them to do - just repair the wires fully?
Bit nervous cos I'm meant to be driving to the Liverpool gave v Everton next Monday, and am worried it's just gonna die on the M62 or something!

If bare wires are exposed insulation tape is not very good at repelling water and damp - a good auto-spark should be able to apply good insulation - the heat shrink stuff is very good. It is possible a few sections of the cable may need replaced and good soldering skills go a long way in making a permanent repair.
The last thing you need is for the engine to cut out at an important time like coming out of a junction or overtaking
