Renault rip off

Postby Dan » Fri May 11, 2007 12:19 pm

Hi lads the girlfriend just rang me there, she left her car into Reanualt to get the window fixed. Problem with the motor, window wont go up. They are trying to charger her 500 Euro to fix it! Is this the going rate for fixing electric windows or is she getting ripped off? Its a 2003 Renaut megane 3 door. Did a quick search to price a motor on ebay and its going for 655 euro. I tried to take the door card off myself but its impossible to get off.

sorry ye i meant 65 euro! I tried taking the door card off my self which was next to impossible. snapped a plastic lid off in the process and she went made at me! The first renault garage i rang up said 400 Euro. obviously they stick an extra 100 Euro on for female customers

its a problem on all those models. the genuine motor would be alot dearer than the one on e-bay too. also, they could be replacing the regulator too, i think they`re all in one. but bein a main dealer, they will charge a bomb. would it not be under warranty still...
