Cost of Renault Bits

142 posts in this topic

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 sh*te 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.

New Seat Rails - Driver Seat Only - $1200.00 - Damaged after a track day of my little body slamming around the seat

 

New Steering wheel - main ring only - $630 - following an outrageously hot day in December when the glue melted on thumb rests

You just spent $2900 on your 19? Dude! You could buy an entire 19 for that!

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 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

OH MY GOD. No wonder Renault refused to change my exhaust system, which is again getting VERY close to the rear bumper!

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.

Thought I'd post some good prices - after all the expensive items so far! :shock:

 

Clio RE8200033408 oil filter - $11.96

RE7700424098 air filter - $39.65

 

(+ GST I think?)

 

I'm happy with those prices; particularly after getting slugged $30+ for my old Peugeot 306 and Ford Mondeo V6 oil filters (up to ten years ago!!!)

$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.

I remember that storm, knocked a few trees down in my backyard. :(

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... :(
