Hi and welcome to the forum,iam not 100% but i beleive you have to gain access from the inner plastic Guard round the wheel arch or from inside the boot at the back of the boot linning and trim on the inner side of the quarter panel i hope this helps Donald.

Hi there, just joined your forum. Very comprehnsive source for Renault queries!!

I have a 2000 Scenic RTE. Fuel flap was broken off by thieves. I have tried to go in through the boot and the wheel arch but it seems there is body work which is welded in place covering the actual flap on the inside? No Renault dealers in my area are able to advise...so it seems a body shop is the answer...

sorry about the delay, i read the post, then got excited by the fact that i could do it, and did it hahah

yeh, if u just stick your arm up (it be dirrty) and you'll need a 8mm spanner, use a fixed, as you'll need to do about 100 1/4 turns to get the bugger off, dont drop teh nut either heh, it took about 45mins to get off as the amount of dirt and grit that had fused the nut to the bolt was phenomenal! then i just soaked it in WD40, so it was a hell of a lot easier to put back on... cheers again donald!

hope this helps someone else too!
