Faulty window mechanism on “Renault scenic”

Back to Renault rip off

Here is the Part that I have had to purchase as you can see in the video clip

this piece is what you will find inside your door the moving parts are all plastic apart from the motor so in practice, it is built in that you will have a problem a couple of years after you purchase you car

The spear part costs 375 euro and if you have to get the mechanic to put it in you are talking about an hour labour (that is what they will charge) 120 + Vat so all told you would be looking at 500euro +

What a rip off

For those of you who would like to put this in themselves I will make a video clip to show you how to open the door panels and take out the “Faulty window mechanism” and replace it with the new one

electricians’ strike action


IRISH TIMES REPORTERS that

The leader of the State’s largest trade union


Has declared his support for electricians planning to strike from tomorrow and he said his union would give a “strong recommendation” to its members to support an all-out picket.

What Planet are these people living on! You should be on the streets demanding work and retraining for the unemployed, Mr. Connor!

  • “The TEEU (www.teeu.ie )  is entirely justified in the action it is proposing and our union believes it is most regrettable that electricians in the TEEU have been forced to engage in such action by reason of the employers’ refusal to negotiate, despite a recommendation from the Labour Court that they should do so,” Mr O’Connor said in a statement.

    “The electricians have only served strike notice having exhausted every possible alternative procedure against a background of the declared intention of the employers to implement a pay cut of the order of 10 per cent and detrimentally alter other conditions of employment, all of which are in contravention of the Registered Employment Agreement for the industry.”

    Things have changed wake up and look around you all the electricians that are now standing in the dole queues would gladly work for 20 euro an hour

    Mr O’Connor said that ultimately the electricians must be supported by all workers because the employers’ objective of cutting pay and “tearing up agreements” reflected the primary aim of the “wealthy elite” in society to preserve their own position.

    Talking about preserving your own position, you are part of these wealthy elite,

    What salary do you get; it’s a multiple of the average industrial wage most of your members get

  • “As soon as the TEEU seeks the support of other trade unionists through the Irish Congress of Trade Unions by applying for an all-out picket, Siptu (www.siptu.ie )will immediately ballot its members affected, with a strong recommendation that they support the electricians.”

    This action is like Turkeys voting for Christmas.

    Unless you wake up, we the general public cannot afford to pay these over the top rates!

    (I am unemployed) Whatever the pay I would gladly be getting any kind of job now

    The TEEU said on Friday night it would attend any talks to resolve the dispute but said that the strike notice for Monday remained in place. However, the talks broke down yesterday afternoon, with no plans for further discussions before tomorrow’s planned strike action.

    The TEEU now looks set to place pickets at more than 200 construction sites and at a number of manufacturing firms around the country. The union wants to push the rate for electricians up by more than 11 per cent, from an existing €21.49 to €23.98 an hour. Employers are pleading an inabilty to pay the increase and are looking for a 10 per cent cut in wages.

    TEEU general secretary designate Eamon Devoy said that his members were looking for money due to them since 2006/2007.

    MR.EAMON DEVOY
    Assistant General Secretary
    Technical Engineering Electrical Union
    5 Cavendish Row
    Dublin 1.

    Telephone: 01 874 7047
    Fax: 01 874 7048
    Email:eamon_d@teeu.ie

     

    The Electrical Contractors Association (ECA), the body that represents some of the larger contractors, has said its members were not in a position to pay the increases sought by the electricians.


    “The members just cannot afford to pay any increases,” ECA executive secretary Chris Lundy told The Irish Times . He said members we’re getting Government letters “left, right and centre” looking for cuts in the price of contracts, most recently from the OPW.

    If the strike should go ahead, work on a number of construction projects such as the Terminal 2 development at Dublin airport, the new Intel project in Co Kildare, the Corrib gas project and the new Lansdowne Road stadium could be affected.

    This kind of action from the Trade Unions only enforces the notion that the Union Bosses are not down with the ordinary people on the ground and that there is no sense in squeezing employers now for more pay that will only make them less competitive and thus ensure more job losses

    We need immediate massive investment in the unemployed for retraining up skilling and back to education and the investment must equal that of the investment in the Banks

    “You do not have the support of the General public for this strike action lads!”

    I hear that Mr. Bill Cullen has given up the Renault franchise for new car sales but he is holding on to the Parts division “The cute Hu***!

    This is an invitation to all Renault owners.

    I propose to highlight any and all problems that this model has and with your help we might be able to break up this cosy cartel in after sales service and get a fairer deal on spear parts.

    So if you have this model then please do send in your experiences and we will succeed in getting a better deal for all Renault owners in the County

    Come to think of it I extend this invention to all car makers.

    Here is a link to a site I found this morning. http://3lib.ukonline.co.uk/scenic/trouble.html

  13. and    http://www.renaultforums.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=19

    I would not take a new Renault if you paid me to do so.

    Without doubt, it has being the most disastrous car model, I have ever owned, and I would not wish it on my worst enemy!

Da –da Lid-dil-lis –da –da etc etc !!!

As I write this article I am listening to what in fast becoming a program I look forward to every day now

Anyway I will tape the show as best I can

You will hear this Union Boss telling reluctant electrical contractors they have to charge new higher hourly rates and the small contractors are saying that they have to live in the real world and charge what the current market will pay now

This gob-s*** spends the entire time making a complete buffoon of himself and reminds me of the loony 70s Trade unionist that went on strike for cups of tea in the English car factories then

He sounds as if he has his nose completely up is *** and is clinging on to his chairman Union Red Book Mantra

This proves to me that I was right about the trade unions here in Ireland; they are one and the same with the current government

They have lost their roots and are complexity out of touch with the ordinary working people

Time and Time again ordinary working electricians were ringing in to the show to say they did not want to charge these new charges because the current economic conditions do not support them! People just cannot pay these ridiculous hourly rates

Well none of these rates are as bad as the hourly rate I was quoted for my Renault car repair

Remember the 120Euro per Hour Bill Cullen wants to charge, He must want to buy a new Porsche and hopes that people like me will just cough up the bread

the point is there are a lot of people still out there that have not yet coped on that we are now in a depression and the good times of ripping off Joe public is over for good

So get real!!

Renault parts rip off!

A few days ago I was taking something out of the car and when closing the driver side back passenger door the window fell out!

What do you expect from Renault? Crap of course!

I also remember that Bill Cullen (Yes He of Irish apprentice TV show) was on the radio giving out saying that the Greens were responsible for the collapse of sales in the car industry

Well I got news for you Bill .You are responsible for the collapse, yeh you

Back to my window, I managed to open the panels on the car door to see what had happened

I saw that a small plastic holder the size of a matchbox was broken everything was working fine

So I decided to call into my friendly Renault dealer (nearest one to Wicklow Town is in Gory)

So I went to Dublin because I thought I would get the part to-day

Well shock shock shock!!! Yes they could get the part but I would have to buy the entire window

Mechanism (I could not just get the tiny plastic piece!) at a price of only 375 Euro please!!!

Thanks Bill

I was also told that the price was gone up just a week ago

This price was just the price for the part if I wanted them to put it in I would have to pay for the service at 120 Euro per Hour again Thank you Mr. Bill

So Bill shut off the crocodile tears for the hard pressed motorist and stop ripping off us instead!

Bill Your Fired!
