Unhappy Renault Clio 2 - Loose Wiring Loom Cover Cutting Into ECU Loom*FIXED*

Hi guys

I read a few posts on this forum and elsewhere on the Internet about the tamper proof black box at the back of the engine working loose and cutting through wires.

I've checked mine out and indeed I also have the same problem. My wires are still intact (just) but I'm wondering how to tighten the box back up? Also my box looks like its lost one half of itself and its lid? It appears I only have the left hand side remaining!

Can anyone confirm this is what it should / shouldn't look like and how to tighten it back up? Thanks. The car is a 2002 plate extreme.

Hi and welcome, Im not too sure what this is but.. A friend of mine has the same problem so it must be a fairly common problem .. but he cant start his car unless someone shakes that box.. its a strange one.

Im sure someone on here can tell us what it is! Especialy with a clear photo!

Had so many 'sensor problems' on the clio 16v 1.2, but so far every sensor has tested good.
Now time to replace the loom, anyone know where I can buy one without paying Renault main dealer prices?
(did see a post quoting 46.60 - but can i find it now???)

Please email directly or post here. thanks
