What are the defects?

The exhaust valve wiring may not be adequately mounted under the vehicle, and may come into contact with the exhaust. The wiring may melt the duct and then melt the wiring, which may short-circuit the exhaust flap wiring.

What are the hazards?

If the defect occurs, the vehicle may switch into limp home mode, be unable to start or cease operating while driving, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified to contact a Renault dealer to arrange for inspection and repairs to the wiring with the preventative wiring repair kit.
