“Regarding this Bulb changing. It is a nightmare....”

Written on: 18/12/2007 by ad3 (1 review written)

Regarding this Bulb changing. It is a nightmare. Halfords, Farmer Autocare and Kwikfit all unable to change it. I changed it once with the help of a chap from Halfords. It took us 20 minutes and we were both cut and bleeding at the end of it!!
Did write to Renault and their response was to waffle on about vehicle safety!!!
Moto of the story, think before you buy Renault.
The cost is now £63 to replace the bulb, go figure how much they make in a year out of this!… Read Full Review

Ive got a renault megane 1.9 dci on a 54reg & recently needed a new side light bulb & although it only cost's 99p for the bulb i got my local renault dealer to supply & fit it for me for £20 & as id heard that it's a really hard job to do i thought that wasn't too bad.I then a few weeks later had the headlight bulb go but this time i actually went to my local halfords in leicester & it cost me £10 for the headlight buld & they fitted the bulb for me at a cost of just £5.99!Plus it must have took the guy at halfords no more than 5 mins

“This Renault Megane 1.9 Dci Hatch is a car that...”

Written on: 18/06/2005 by anterior matters (2 reviews written)

This Renault Megane 1.9 Dci Hatch is a car that deserves to succeed but I fear that once M gane lls come out of warranty and move into the used car market, the next owners will be put off Renault for life. There are all kinds of problems with the various engines - 1.4 16v, 1.6VVTi, 1.9dCi and the 2.0 litre. Geraboxes would seem to be a bit notchy here and there.

Dealers are pretty much hit and miss - and mainly miss at that. Warranty claims seem to require a long battle with Renault… Read Full Review

i didnt know the 1.9 Dci Hatch had a turbo i thought it was direct rail injection. I've had mine two years and had no problems.

“The Renault Megane 1.9 Dci family car is overall a...”

Written on: 08/02/2005 by moominpapa (2 reviews written)

The Renault Megane 1.9 Dci family car is overall a good design, and is a comftable car. It gives good fuel efficiency and the 1.9 Dci engine is as fast and responsive as the 2.0l petrol.

With a 5 star euro ncap rating the car is one of the safest in it's class, which is reassuring.

My only criticisms is the relatively high cost of renault servicing, and the ridiculous situation with the headlight bulbs.

Basically, to change the bulb, you have to remove the bumper, then remove the headlight… Read Full Review

Hi, would just like to comment that to change a bulb you do NOT have to take the bumper off or remove the headlamp, there are inspection covers in the wheelarch housing which you remove to access the bulb/s, also you can (just get your hand in to change the main bulbs if your lucky. One last point is bulbs don't cost £15...£11 for H7 dip beam, £8 for H1 main beam and about £2.50 for an amber indicator bulb.
<br>Regards
<br>Ricardo

Renault probably say you have to remove the bumper so they can justify charging you a ridiculous price for changing the bulb.

Changing a bulb on a renault megane really isnt that hard at all,i have a 54reg megane 1.9dci 3door & halfords changed my head lamp bulb in less than 5mins & it only cost me &pound;15.99 for the buld & having it fitted.Plus a few weeks before a needed a new side light bulb & my local renault main dealer in leicester supplied & fitted me a new bulb for just &pound;20!Plus i don't know how they do it @ renault but @ halfords all the guy had to do was put his hand up the wheel arch to change the bulb & that was it no taking off any bumpers or anything!

ITS EASY TO CHANGE MEGANE FRONT BULBS IF YOU REMOVE THE FRONT WHEEL AND THE INSPECTION COVER.IT TAKES LONGER TO TAKE THE WHEEL OFF THAN TO REPLACE THE BULB.

Bought a second hand 54 plate 1.9 dCi on Friday, even after reading this page, and could not believe it when it blew the right headllamp the following day. However, Halford's in Salisbury replaced it within 3 minutes via the wheel arch access panel. Main headlamps not that difficult, but I can see how indicators and sidelights could be troublesome.

Only a baby octopus can change front indicator bulb through the wheel arch liner. Quicker to remove wheel arch liners, then bumper, then lamp assembly. A - purchase indicator bulb PLUS six fasteners to hold front bumper top to body. B - support front securely on axle stands so as to allow front wheels to turn from lock to lock. C - A flat bicyle spanner is ideal for prising off the wheel arch liner fasteners. These can be reused. D - fasteners to hold front bumper top to body will shatter when removed. Wear goggles. D - On reassembly, headlamps are likely to remain in alignment, and do not need re-adjusting.

I agree with moominpapa's review, great car but what a shame about the light bulbs! I tryed myself, and the bruises have only just gone down!
<br>Renault charged me £58 to change it AND scratched the bumper when they took it off!!
<br>If the other reviewer is such a golden boy at changing them , he's welcome to come and sort mine anytime!!!!!

Ricardo, thank you for your comments.....
<br> However, RENAULT (the folk who built the car...) STATE that the bumper must be removed to facilitate removal and change of the bulb on the nearside, therefore if you work for Renault and this is untrue please advise both Croydon and Watford dealerships of this being false! RENAULT QUOTED the charges I mentioned, I refer to my previous request should you be a Renault employee. If however you are not such an employee, for your information the following facts: The price of such parts is, of course, variable from supplier to supplier, however the trade price remains approx £1 for a H7 bulb assuming a significantly large enough bulk order, (it is reasonable to surmise Renualt would fall into such a category, for instance this is the price Ambulance service workshops purchase them for)
<br>A fitter (mechanic) with 26 years experience failed to change the near-side bulb in the above vehicle after spending 75 minutes trying. A second fitter with slightly less experience, at 11 years, gave up after only half an hour.
<br>Obviously Renault could shove their inflated prices, so I took my car to local garage and the bulb was changed in 25 minutes of gymnastic activity, via the small access apertures. Most importantly however, this particular fitter, had a Megane himself, and had had his own car apart to change the bulb the first time his went, so had had the opportunity to visualise previously what he had to do, as I'm sure you appreciate, you certainly can't see what you're doing through the side of the car!
<br>As I say, if you work for Renault, take action on the problem, if not, you are I'm afraid misguided!
<br>Many thanks for your interest
