Thought the FAQ section would be a good place to start a 'cost of stuff' thread.

e.g The airbag computer module on my mrs clio expression apparently shat itself according to Melville Euro. I intially thought it would have been loose wiring underneath the seat on the passenger side in accordance with previous threads but not the case. Anyhoo the cost of replacement is $700.

Also when my mrs purchased her clio expression 2nd hand from Melville Renault approx 18mths ago she only got 1 key. Found this out only after we had signed the deal. Not something you regularly bargain for - "could you throw in a spare key please?"

I was quoted approx $300 for another key.

Also thought it would be a good idea to bold the cost and the item if you intend to spin some useless shite like i have for instance.

Excellent idea. Maybe we should also say where from?

Hazard light switch $63.50 from Parramatta European.
Stock front brake pads, both sides, $122.95 from Rick Damelian.

I could go and buy another 19 and then face the same problems 6 months down the track, atleast everything is now A1. Besides, I can't think of a time when someone hasn't been ripped off or lost money whilst they have owned a car. Yes, I too was very annoyed at the time, but I still love my little renault.

Cheers.

I'm saving for new driver's side seat rails $937and d/s Xenon low beam bulb $246 [b] wholesale from Main North Renault

Does any one have any idea where either of these items may be picked up used in good cond? there's no Renault wreckers in adelaide

I love my 172, but if anything is going to drive me back to Japanese it's cost and availability of standard parts and performance bits.I've really had a gutsfull

They will sooner or later.... Because the Exhaust System is so stiff and the engine moves around heaps will cause further flex, bend, cracks etc

With all the present movement my exhaust clamp managed to unscrew itself fall of.

Hmmmmm - Funny you should say that. I think mine is too tight though. It doesn't sit as low as it should - hence looks as though the bumper is about to sit on the exhaust. I think though the Cat might be dropping in the centre, hence causing the tips to lift.

But yea, good to know the cost of the exhaust! Extended Warranty it is...

Its not normallly a problem, usually only attached at either end and maybe one or two clamps along its length to
hold it in place. Check what the fitting is like through the firewall, thats what may decide for you wether a pro
does the job or if you can try it yourself as its usually the hardest part to get done.

Ok here's my list of parts, all from Renault all +GST.

Lower control arm $137.76
RH Drive shaft $437.08
Bumper reinforcer $215.57
Bumper reinforcer support $49.19
Front Sub frame #1057.06
Drive shaft seal $15.94
Hub Nut $11.68
Headlight $300
Wing $190
Steering rod $143.83
Bonnet slam panel $245.10
Clutch release fork $80.83
Syncro kit $175.87
Extra syncro not in kit for sport box $365.80
Starter solenoid $225.35
Secondary shaft inner bearing $30.44
Roof skin $1141.60
RH quarter panel $1022.26

Windscreen $488.71
Timing belt kit $218.58
Engine mount RH $180.57

I'd take these prices as a rough guide only as Renault realised I was going to spend quite a bit of money and helped me out in certain areas.

Anybody after any second hand interior parts I have quite a few. I am keeping door trims and most of the dash but the rest has to go. I have airbags, stacker etc. still.

$5500.00 for a new gearbox housing. Last year i was driving down Wright st near Bio's house after a pretty nasty storm. I was behind a 4WD and he drove over a tree branch that was in the middle of the road. I couldnt avoid it and drove over it and sheared off part of the gearbox housing that houses the clutch cable.

Do you remember when i came over and asked you about the black cable hanging low underneath the car and you tucked it under. I though it was electrical - it was actually the clutch cable. I asked REnault to take a look afew weeks later and they couldnt find anything for the next 3 services unitl my clutch cable broke last month. They've had the car for 6 weeks now waiting for the housing to come out of France. As a consolation insurance is covering it.

Yeah, I remember, but that certainly wasn't the clutch cable mate. But it probably was knocked out
by running over the tree limb. It looked to me like it was the handbrake cable. The clutch cable
runs from the back of the firewall forward to the edge of the gearbox, a long way from that area of the car.

I'm suprised the car kept working all that time before the cable snapped. I suppose it snapped on a rainy
day in peak hour traffic... :(
