Just got this done at the local Renault place that now services EVs.

€88 all in. Not sure exactly what was done.

Appears there was some recall for the ‘Central Habitation Unit’.

Apparently the first service involves changing the cabin air filter and an "A" service, which is:-
  • Check the levels, condition and sealing of the brake circuit
  • Check the exterior lighting and signals
  • Check the condition and sealing of the shock absorbers
  • Check condition and pressure of the tyres and road wheel security
  • Check the presence of the wheel valve caps
  • Check the wear of the brake discs and pads
  • Check the wiper blades and screen washer fluid level
  • Check the 12V battery with test tool
  • Check the computers with the diagnostic tool
  • Reinitialise the maintenance service display
  • Documentation and positioning of the maintenance label
Next year will be a "B" service which includes the above items and adds
  • Check the interior lighting
  • Anti-corrosion check
  • Check and lubricate the bonnet lock
  • Check the levels, condition and sealing of the coolant circuit
  • Check the condition and sealing of the gaiters, rubber mountings, ball joints and shock absorbers
  • Check the condition of the windscreen and door mirrors
  • Check the presence of the airbag and engine compartment labels
  • Check the operation of the instrument panel warning lights
"Central Habitation Unit"? Could be the hardware version of the pre-conditioning fix, I guess?

I always find these EV service regimes laughable. Pretty much ALL of the items listed above , an owner can do outside their own home. And I am pretty much sure on a busy day at the dealership hardly any of that lot will be done by the Renault technicians either. And we get to pay for the privilege!

It’s just a Renault tax to keep the warranty going.

At €88 I think that’s fair enough.

I will check to see if the cabin filter has been changed.

As I said, I don’t know what they actually did, but apparently they did do a software update.
