Hi
I work for a renault dealer.
The Recall on certain scenic2(2003 on) is a preventitive action by Renault uk-to elimenate rattly windows and prevent excessive strain on the electric window motor this is currently being carried out by renault dealers countrywide and is no big deal as far as safety is concerned.

Hi Folks,
I had the window clips recall done at the 18000 service, Never had any probs with the windows before now they screetch on upward or downward travel plus a draught coming from the window switches on drivers side, Drivers door card rattles as well, Had it back for repair but all the above faults still present.

Yeah when I took it in for service, They said there has been a recall for clips to be fitted in the windows to stop them dropping & it would take about 2.5 hours, no problem as they gave me a courtesy car as I had some other faults that required attention, Cold running Etc Etc Etc.

Thanks for the link Mag1.
Now, forgive me for being a little naive here, but when a manufacturer initiates a recall (especially a safety recall) are the local dealers supposed to get in touch with people they have sold vehicles to and request they be brought in for the work to be done asap?
As this is my first new car, I'm a little peeved that I've found out about a braking recall on the Scenic via Renaultforums and not from my own dealer. And it was 4 months ago?...........scary:eek:

Hi ive just had to book my car in (3rd Nov) cant get a courtesy car till then! as my passengers front window has dropped, think i remember hear a small snap/bang noise when my passenger put window down a bit. Any ideas what might be wrong. Hopefully Renault will fix free of charge as is only 2 an half yrs old. Whilst its there do you think they would put a new blind in the rear door as the plastic pipe has broke just like so many other peoples.

Thanks

Yes if the window drops it can cause damage to mechanism, It was a preventive measure to save Renault paying out on mechanisms, Megane II were affected as well.

Did you get the brake recall done and the rear belt clips recall.

Hi, guys, first time poster here.
First, thanks for an interesting and very useful site.
Second, I recently purchased a used 2004 1.9 privilege, what is the standing with recalls on used cars?
Can I check anywhere if they have been don?

Thanks
