Who's managed to get Renault to replace their steering wheel?



  Fiesta Zetec S TDCi
As above really - mine's all melted and sticky, what are my chances of getting it replaced under warranty?

Better get mine booked in, getting peed off with my sleeve getting stuck to the wheel lol

As I understand it only under warranty - and even then not everyone has managed to get them FOC I think :(
 
Mine needs doing too but I'm out of luck on an 02 reg, have a tea towel to put over the wheel now, especially as I use a crook lock.

can i get mine done even tho its a 2002 model :(
If you've an extended warently yep.

If you've got low milage its worth a try on the grounds of fit for purpose.

Try ringing Renault Uk yourself see what they say just be polite to them.
 
my leather had a crease i it. basically it had a raised 'line' right where you hold it.. 20kmiles

replaced under warranty :)

They changed mine without me even asking, i went to pick it up from a normal service, and they said they had noticed the rubber grips coming loose, so had changed it under warrenty FOC

That was the renault dealership in Guildford (smc i think)

Had the same done at Renault Ilford mate, its only a 35 min wait. Changed without question and preorderd as soon as fault was reported, so no back order delays. Think the leather on the newer ones is a lot nicer too.

v11ous i had mine done at s j cooks, station road, bristol! loads better than city motors, as soon as i said that it had gone they pratically said yep its covered!

just go in and say that your steering wheel has melted and your grips have split(if they have, mine did really bad!)and u want to no if its still covered on warrenty, the dude at the desk will ask for your reg and how many miles the car has done, tbh i think the fact uve only done 18k should make them change it free of charge! they didnt hesitate when i said the same! and mines done 7k more than your! good luck mate!

Mine is a 2002 reg 52 plate one this was 6 month ago ad it was done.
Get the Renault dealership to ring Renault Uk and explain to them they will autorise the chnaging under warenlty.
Trim is covered for 1 wear but sine if its fails as quick as they do then its not fit for purpose so is covered under the sales of goods act.

My left grip has 'popped' and both sides of the leather have melted. Dixons in Hull say they wont replace it and want to charge between £350 and £800 depending what colour I want! Ripping off b@stards!

My 172 is a 53 plate with warranty for another month. Done nearly 31K.

Any advice guys?

If you live near lougborough, phone 01509 213030 ask for renault.


Or get back to your dealer, tell them 'not fit for purpose' ala trading standards!!!!!!!

Give renault cust services a bell & give them some s**t also.

Don't let them fob you off.

Tell them its not fit for purpose and get them to contact Renault Uk with pictures.

Been back to the dealer. They told me to phone Renault so they could advise the dealer what to do. Just had a call saying the dealer advised renault the damage was due to wear & tear and therefore not covered by warranty.

Anyone a clue how to resolve this?

Renault Harlow done it without question! Along with - Engine mounts, clutch, gear box, spark plugs, two front seat sub frames, exhaust and much much more :)

Well I'm still getting nowhere with this. The dealer is insisting it's down to wear & tear. I've argued that a steering wheel should be able to last longer than 30K but they wont change their opinion.

I just got back from another local dealer and they are going to call me back. He said because I don't have the car serviced by a renault dealer the warranty will be invalid! I thought that wasn't allowed these days?
 
My cup went in for service jan of this year, approx 30K miles on a 53 plate, commented that i really didnt think the steering wheel should be quite so grimey and yuky already, n when i picked it up next day they had automatically replaced it along with rear shock (leaking) and centre exhaust (rattling). Well pleased. It was the dealer i bought the car off and theyve always serviced it, so they may be being a lil kind so if i eventually change ill buy of them again but who knows

Now at 40K and keeping an anxious eye on it...lol
