It means If I Remember Correctly. Yep, I think most Renault dealers suck tbh.

how easy are these to fit??? do u have to remove the door cards to fit them or can u do it with the door cards left on???

Very easy, undo the small torx bolt that holds them in, lift them up, disconnect the wiring plugs and take the switches out and transfer them over and connect everything back up again. Very straightforward.

every dealer i ring quoets the above part as 65 pounds and no one seems to know the part code for the tray without the switches. Please help i am really getting frustrated. :(

ok, ill try a few more dealers but so far letchworth and milton keynes both said 60 odd quid.

What dealers have people got these from for the lower price?
I can then use this to tell the next dealer i ring up.

have called 6 different dealers and all say 62 quid. i dont know what to do.
Maybe the pricing has changed since you lot who have them got it.
If anyone finds out a dealer near them, who is doing it for that price i would happily pay them to buy it and post it to me with a little on top for themselves.

Thanks for the help, much appreciated.

Thatpics looks good, nice job. Problem with mine is that the top layer has chipped away so if i was to re-spray it i would still have lots of indentations everywhere :(

The rest of my car is in a pretty much spotless condition. The door trays are the only thing that dont make them look any good. If i were to get some new ones the interior will look cracking.

Just called them and they are now £65 plus vat as well. Cant believe that, they wont have been selling it at a loss when I bought it for £12 so think of the huge huge profit being made on that, bloody renault :mad::mad:

outragous really, upping the price like this. :(

This is because all the Mk1 172 interiors are starting to age and therefore will need replacing around now. They have us right by the short and curlies.

B@stards :mad:

surley a decent spray shop will be able to fill the holes in and smooth them down ??

Id just cough up the 60 odd its nearly cost you that much in phone bills trying to find them lol

i put up in another thread about trying to get the centre bit where the heater vents are off so i could get the whole silver trim parts resprayed matched up and colour coded.

Turns out its a full dash out job so i just left it in place and took the door grabs to a spray place and got them to just colour code the tray grabs to the same colour as the centre trim. They spent a while matching up colour charts and it turns out the nearest colour to the original silver items is a Chrysler one !! ...... did a great job and youd never be able to tell theyve been sprayed up. !! all for 20 notes too !!
