Re: Renault Espace - Steering Stiff/No Self-Centering*FIXED*

In my experience main dealers are good at changing boxes until they find the problem. I had a VW diesel that started to pour out black smoke. I was pretty sure it was a blown intercooler pipe. The main dealer plugged in his computer and assured me it was the EGR valve.

Stupidly I paid up and sure enough the car still smoked. This time they did as I asked and took off the undertray to find a split intercooler hose.

Next time I will tell them that I will pay when they solve the problem but Im not paying a penny for them to just swap parts at my expense.
