    [​IMG] Hi Guys, Advice please? My mechanic has done an amazing job of a suspension oferhaul and underside light resto (pics to follow) on #249. Ihave read here before that the correct OEM rear replacement SACHs dampers are NOT black? My mechanic ordered using the correct part number. Are the ones in this pic the right ones for my trophy?

    Second Question: Anyone know the paint code for the front SACHs units?

    Thanks in advance... image1.jpeg

    It looks to me like 182 cup rear dampers have been fitted to you car, they are identifiable by the yellow and blue sticker.

    The trophy shares the same rear springs as the 182 cup but should have different dampers.

    The original Sachs were grey but the new version are black and should have a square Sachs sticker on them not that yellow and black one, look like normal/cupdampers I'm afraid.

    B&gger, thought so, how do I get the correct ones if these have come from Renault after quoting the correct PN?

    Ah, thanks:worried:

    I just realised that there is already a thread on this, sorry for creating a new one.

    Anyone know the SACHS paint code for the original front ones?[​IMG]

    @hoolio why don’t you like the company just out of interest? I’ve never used them, just interested, I usually use Renault parts direct but the Sachs rear dampers are quite a bit more on there at the moment than on your link.

    Actually just one particular guy, who is still there. But I don't know of many companies that will get an order wrong despite me giving them the part number then send the replacement and a load of other bits to the wrong address despite me giving them those details on the phone and via email and then refusing to redirect that parcel. I then had to chase for a refund after I told them where they could stick their order. It was not a small amount of money either. That's pretty useless in my book.

    Sounds like a good reason!

    IIRC Rik Perry said the differences between the rear dampers are minimal.
