Estate rear door

Postby scooper1000 » Tue May 01, 2018 3:14 pm

Hi can anybody help me i have a 2006 Megane Estate and my high brake light does not work so i want to remove it to check it out and possibly replace it. BUT my haynes manual is very vague as to how this happens, i have removed the plastic window surround and removed the 2 torx screws which fasten the top cover and it is now very loose and can be moved a bit. The cover seems to be held in by three pieces of plastic which i do not want to use force incase i damage it....could anybody confirm these three pieces of plastic either have to be forced out or do they move in another direction...thanks

Hi scooper1000,

The three pieces of plastic have been installed as part of a safety recall by Renault and stops the spoiler (where the high level brake light is screwed into) falling off at high speed. Its why you cannot easily remove the spoiler. Its all down to the fact that the plastic lugs of the spoiler where the torx screws screw into are very weak and break off - so be careful when you do them up again!
If you cannot find a way to jiggle the spoiler free then the only way to remove it is to remove one (try one first) black plastic piece. There are 6 torx screws holding the spoiler in place and 2 torx screws holding the brake light in place.
Re-assembly is straight forward, just be careful tightening up the screws. You will have to re-stick the removed black plastic pieces with super glue.
I know this because I had to change the same brake light on my car after Renault performed the safety recall work.
All the best.
