Yet another recall today to fix the electrical battery issue
Do you have more info about that? Never heard of such a recall.
an undisclosed French coded recall (trying to find out about that one)
“Renault a décelé une possible oxydation du connecteur de batterie de traction par entrée d’eau au niveau de la cosse de masse et migration via le fil de masse par capillarité jusqu’au connecteur. Nous vous invitons à contacter directement une affaire du Réseau « EXPERT RENAULT Z.E. », habilitée à procéder à la réparation de votre véhicule.”
“Renault has detected a potential oxidation of the traction battery connector that originated from water ingress to the ground cable that proceeded by capillarity to the connector of the earth cable. Because of this, we invite you to contact a Renault ZE dealership, that can repair your vehicle”
Imagine my shock when I got a call from Renault saying my rear discs and pads were in a dangerous condition and needed replacing and it would cost £750. For two discs and four pads. Bl**dy h*ll.
Prices for the rear discs have been lowered. Discs and wheel recievers are unfortunately one piece. German prices were 250 € each, but have been lowered to 100 €. Pads are around 100 € per set. So prices are:
rear disc 100 € (you need two)
front pads 100 € (including 4 pads for the whole axle)
rear pads 100 € (including 4 pads for the whole axle)
That adds up to 400 € for materials. I guess they have taken the old prices, because even with work time included, 750 £ sounds too much.
**Wear parts are only excluded from warranty, if the show normal abrasion (see warranty papers). **And at 4000 miles that is not the case so you should insist to get it ALL changed via warranty.
Does anyone else have experience of this?
Yes, a lot of twizy drivers experience this. The pads get probably stuck due to wear of friction and dont release from the dics enough. I take apart all my brakes every two weeks to clean them. Otherwise they will get noisy and will show excessive abrasion.
It seems that i have to really create my brake tutorial.
