Mk4 MX-5, Smart 451
My car is booked into Renault on the 2nd, just need some advice. It is going in for 2 things.
Firstly, the passenger side main headlight has got a lot of condensation in it and it hasnt shifted (have had the car for a month now). Do you reckon they will replace the unit altogether or just do a bodge job if such a thing is possible? When i picked the car up from Motorpoint they informed me that the car had already been to Renault to have one of the main headlight bulbs replaced due to a blown bulb, so i am presuming this has caused the condesation they said the bulb cost £150 to be replaced.
Secondly, the glovebox is very poorly fitted in that it has got a big gap on one on side where it meets the dashboard when closing it (towards the middle of the car). And when driving down the road it is knocking on and off the catch (hence the interior light inside the glovebox goes on and off, and it is like Blackpool illuminations in the car at night). Now i think this is probably down to the dodgy mould that the lid has been made in therefore it aint going to be a case of just bending the lid cos it wont, so i think this is going to have to be replaced, i notice that at the bottom of the lid there are pop rivet looking things, so i am hoping that the glovebox lid can be removed easily without having to pull 90% of the dashboard apart.
I think i am going to phone Renault today and ask them if i can bring the car down to confirm if parts are going to have to be ordered in advance of the car being seen to on the 2nd. Just wanted to see what ppl thought of the two issues.
