Roof Key Dimensions

Post by Sandancer on Sun 13 Nov 2016 - 20:50

Can someone please post dimensions of the roof key. I don't appear to have one. If its just a long allen key, could you please advise the size.
Many thanks

Yes, it is just an allen key.  Not having the car any more, I cannot give you the size, but if you remove the rear Renault diamond, and the black plastic cover underneath, you'll see the hexagonal hole.  You may need a long series allen key to get to it, but if you have a set of keys, you should then be able to reach.

If you don't have a set, then these are cheap enough if someone else can't measure their key for you. Smile

Please don't leave it in the boot when you get one. If you NEED it, you can't open the boot to get it....

The Allen or Hex key needed in an emergency to raise / lower the boot lid if the power system stops for any reason is a 4mm Allen Key x approx 10cm in length. Nothing special about it.

Unless your roof fails, then the key is special. The noise it makes when not fully open or shut is really annoying.
