Renault Modus Electric Power Steering Column Problems
The 2004 onwards models of the Renault Modus is fitted with the Electric Power steering column which unfortunately is known to be a common failing part. The electric power steering columns replaces the earlier conventional hydraulic power steering system that was fitted to earlier models and although this worked great when it was working correctly, it was very expensive to repair and replace as it was such a common failing part.
1. Heavy steering in both directions.
2. Intermittent loss of steering.
3. Complete loss of power steering.
4. Power steering light illuminating on the dash.
If you experience intermittent loss of steering or it goes heavy in either one or mostly both directions, it will follow with the steering light illuminating on the dash but then this will go out itself. When the problem is ignored, it starts to get more serious and causes the steering to fail completely, which results in complete loss of power steering and the light will remain illuminated on the dash.
Once the Electric Steering Column becomes faulty, you will be charged in excess of £800 +VAT (plus labour + coding) for a replacement from a main dealer and this will only come with a limited 12 month warranty. You could settle with a second had used part as it will definitely be cheaper and will come with a 30-90 day warranty, but you will not have the peace of mind knowing the history of the part and whether it was well maintained when fitted to the previous vehicle or how many miles the used part had already covered. Not only this but there is no real guarantee that it will last as being such a common fault, it will probably fail again at some point!
