The Renault owners club have a number of tools that may be of use to the member. These have been collected by donation in most instances as most tools are more common than the cars they belong to. However in most cases when they are needed they are hard to find or already in enthusiasts hands who may not wish to risk damage by loan.

The club operates a simple system, the person who wishes to borrow a tool pays for all the carriage (or can collect and return at shows), we recommend this is insured as some tools are large. They pay a £50 deposit against loss or damage and £10 a month for the hire. Although the deposit is not likely to cover the tool if it is lost it is likely to allow us to buy a lot more tools. If you have spare tools to donate, these are always welcome.

A list of the tools we have is below, please contact anyone on the committee to hire them. They are on a first come first served basis. When they are hired we will check in the manual it is the right one but we will try and include the use below. 1 Months hire fee is waived if the tool is returned within 1 month with a detailed article (with photos) on the repair for the magazine.

This service is for members only. The tool will come with a copy of the recommended instructions although the club is not responsible for it's use as they have no idea of the competency of the hirer. We have included some tools that are incomplete as well in case people have parts to make the up. These are marked . Items marked belong to members but may be used by discussion.
