440 Any joy? Have you got your car fixed now and is it working correctly now?

deltamachine Well it is now been at the dealers for 3 days but the parts needed are on back order!! Awaiting delivery schedule from France so now have to wait to see when I will actually get my car back. Now driving round in a bright yellow Twingo Dynamique :-)

deltamachine Just had a call from Renault Customer Care and apparently there is now a fix for these issues, just got to wait for a call from the dealer now to book it in

LadyBird Could it be fluid related? Trying to think of what could be affected by temperature.

TurboTomato Maybe I'll put a little note on their facebook page as well

deltamachine Same here, on finance so have been told I am past the 30 day rejection time (took delivery in April). Will give them another week to come back to me as the French side have only just come back from their summer shutdown. Facebook rant seems like a good idea though :-)

Jade75 I had a rant on twitter and Facebook.....Renault uk were hot on my tail! They don't want bad publicity after all. May be worth a shot. I tagged them into both rants so they didn't have much choice but to act really!! Good luck. Still unsure what to do myself....mine is on finance and 6 months old at end of rejection time is limited though like you, trading standards could be plan b as it's appalling for a new car and I deem it not fit for purpose. >

TurboTomato Pedals? Interesting. I can feel mine through the wheel but not the pedals.

deltamachine Mine has just started being noticeable through the pedals as well. Still no joy from the dealer or Renault customer care, thinking about going to trading standards next if I get no joy by the end of next week

Jade75 I took delivery of my Twingo in March. The knocking and creaking started on mine 6 weeks later in May. Worse in hot weather, clunking through steering and pedals and awful creaking noises. It was so bad the RAC came out to look at it and advised that the front bushes had dried out. They were lubricated and I was advised to take it to the dealer asap. A month later, they advised that the front struts needed replacing. Parts on back order. 3 weeks later struts were finally replaced but tech found creaking knocking still present. I ended up having the entire steering rack replaced which did solve the problem......until last week. It's started again
