    Hoping someone might be able to put me in the direction of a place where I can buy Renault parts at a decent price.

    (Not the main stealer - Renault want £61.11 + VAT!)

    Could I get away with one from ECP? They have them as cheap as £47.00

    Wifes Clio still missfiring when pulling away but not when being driven along - its getting worse and I think from my research it’s a coil pack.

    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers

    GSF - German Swedish and French, are worth a call

    ECP or GSF as has been said, unless you decipher a OEM part number on the original part [ e.g. Bosch?] and order direct from a Bosch service centre?

    I had to get rid of my wife's old car because Renault were soooooo expensive for spares. I used GSF, but they were still expensive

    My OH has a Clio and yes, chances are it's a coil pack.

    Bear in mind that if one goes another often follows soon-ish.

    I think we've replaced three now.

    Can't remember who supplied them, sorry.

    Also bear in mind that if you replace them piecemeal and you get different types it can look a bit of a mess when you open the bonnet (if you are bothered).

    Looking at it I can see only a single pack with the 4 ht leads leading to the pencils coming off it.

    It seems its bought as one piece.

    Its a 1.2 16V (2004)

    Perhaps your OH has a different model with more packs?

    Coil packs from GSF are about £25 each. I just bought 4 for my partners Megane.
