    I've just noticed that the dark blue finish is beginning to crack, leaving the white plastic exposed.

    Does anyone know the part number for this ventilation control panel and how easy it is to replace please?

    I am afraid you need too take it apart 1st to see what unit you have fitted, as it would be far to simple for renault to fit the same ones

    When I get home I will give you the OE part number.
    these are NOT cheap and even second hand go for around £30/50

    Part number - 7701 067 035
    Price - £112.63 + vat

    When i put in the Clio 182 Trophy Reg no matter if its mine or one i have googled there comes up with a choice of 3 control panels.

    Denso
    Magneti Mareli
    Valeo

    When i click on the denso one it is not is not listed of my chassis.
    When i click on the Magneti Mareli it gives no information.
    When i click on the valeo it gives me full part number and price so its listed for my car.
    There was a few heater panels listed and as it is a Mk2 clio generic part there would have been loads made for MK2 clios all over with different versions of this part as some come with re-circ and some don't, Some come with A/C and some don't.

    I have also changed mine and i can also confirm that the part was 100% a valeo part and i bought mine second hand.

    This is also the exact one you want altho the part number is different as it have been superseded -

    Sounds complicated!

    The panel isn't that bad so a second hand one would probably be worse than mine tbh but I want it back to sparkling factory condition so a new one it is.

    Thanks for the info MarcR.
    So you think the below is the correct one for all T's:
    Part number - 7701 067 035
    Price - £112.63 + vat

    Mine went the same replaced with a second hand one as it was in perfect condition, paid £20 but bit of a ball ache to replace.

    i would not risk a 2nd hand one as chances are they are the same age and will go the same way, although at £20 you could buy 6 for the price of a new one and replace it every year :rolleyes:
