IF it's like a scenic type the plastic housing the thermostat is built in and you replace whole unit, torques are 2 stage - 7nm and 11nm in a spiral - i needed to buy a torque wrench suitable for bikes to get that low, NOT sure megane's have same as sure iirc some have metal - try lookup on carparts websites

Thanks for reply. When you say too stage do yo mean 7nm all of them first and then do them again at a further 11nm ?
