OK folks. My car is in for its 12,000 mile service next week. I did my own oil change @ 6,000 miles and me being the donkey that I am put a Champion oil filter on the car as opposed to a genuine Renault one. Now my main worry is that next week at the service the mechanics will spot this (as if you have seen both the Champion filter and Renault one you’ll notice that the Chanpion one is slightly larger) and flag this up as warranty invalidation. Now I may be over- reacting here but, I would rather re-fit a genuine Renault filter myself before the service so that I save may cars skin (warranty)! This also means an oil change.
Now would this:
a) be a complete waste of my time/money as the mechanics won’t give a sh1t
b) be a wise decision as my car might be left warranty-less.
My car will also be having warranty work done on it at the same time so I don’t want them to turn around with a fecking big bill as its not covered anymore.
Anyone else had experience with this kind of issue? Opinions appreciated.
