Does anyone know the spring colour codes? I had a search on here and can only find codes for cup chassis springs. I'm after colour codes for standard springs.

Any ideas?

Cheers.

I'm a bit confused how people order replacement springs. I've read a few have snapped. Rang Renault Parts and they asked me to check a friends car to see the colour code? Is this normal?

If you ring your local renault dealer they should be able to do an ICM check on it and tell you exactly what it came out of the factory with. Whether it had standard springs or the extra option cup pack springs.

Martins Renault Basingstoke say no way too look it up. Has anyone managed to do this?

There are two types - cup and "non-cup". Cup springs have a purple dot on them, the standard springs don't. Cup springs are a fair bit firmer.

Fish brothers Renault say there are about 20 springs, all with different colours codes. I just want non-cup springs. They have a colour, but no one, including Renault main dealers and Renault uk can tell me what colour code they should have. WTF??!

Speak to Chris at fish bros And say I've sent you. Cup springs are normally listed as Extreme on the renault parts system.

Talked to Chris, same story, need to give them colour codes.
Can anyone poke their head under their car and have a look for me?
Non-cup is what I want.

has anyone ever managed to work out what the dot colourings are meant to be on the standard RS (non cup) front and rear springs? trying to get to the bottom of this once and for all to help customers, but there seems to be no information out there, and is difficult without a car to look at ourselves

my hunch is that it is a yellow dot on the rear spring and orange, yellow and violet dots on the front, but it would be great if could confirm this..

actually it now looks like the spring option originally marked as orange / yellow / violet on their system is now showing on there as Light orange colour / Yellow colour which tallies up with post above..
