Renault scenic 2007 front passenger door not sitting in flush to car - possible attempted break in but no other damage?! Still locks but definitely space between door and body of car - looks as though on first catch instead of fully shut...how do I fix this please? Thanks.

Most door latch mechanisms can be adjusted up-down-left right a little bit..done by loosening the mounting bolts(body shop will point them out if you inquire, or parts store counter person will maybe show you these)..sometimes a strong wind will pull the door open suddenly and actually bend the sheet metal the door hinges are mounted on and this will "spring" the car door.. you can bend it back usually with some sort of a crowbar, or one of these hydraulic body jacks like a porta-power tool..it looks like a big grease gun with a hose and attachments that yuo can get someone to use to relocate the door with hydraulic pressure and they usually do thejob with little effort..remember these newer vehicles are make with thinner metals nowadays due to weight restrictions and fuel economy so getting bent is kind of easy to do now...take your time to work with tis and it should close almost as it did before...good luck

    Hi Jerome, I managed to move the door catch slightly inwards and this means it is more secure and only slightly proud of the rear door behind it. Many thanks for your swift advice. Regards, Angela.

SOURCE: inner door panel removal, renault megane scenic

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls

Passenger front floor is getting wet?


Hi Deborah:
Time to trouble shoot..........
- Does the wet only happen when it is raining or when you wash the car? Possible windshield seal problem.
- Does the wet smell like anti-freeze or engine coolant (Heater core)
- Where does the dog lie after it has been swimming?

My rear passenger door wont lock on my v reg scenic


Try taking out the lock-mecanism and "grease" with contact-spray. Make sure all electrical-connectors are in good shape at the same time.
Just an idea..

How to lock doors on renault laguna estate 53 plate


think only way is to use your main keycard.should have a cover that pulls off with a master key inside.this locks passenger door not drivers.think there is a cover or something on passenger door handle that this key fits in.this door can then be locked.you may have to get into car.lock drivers door from inside then use the master key to lock passenger door.you can only get back in car though passenger door.try new battery in keycard.coommon fault .switch on keycard breaks off inside keycard.can be soldered back on.think there are replacement switch kits on ebay with instructions how to fix otherwise new card from renault .has to be programed by them.
