Can the clutch wear out on a Renualt Trafic if the hydraulic robot control unit is faulty?

Asked by Russell

I have a 2014 Renault Trafic automatic that needed to have the hydraulic robot control unit from the transmission replaced after 80,000 km. The Renault dealer replaced this under warranty even though it was past the three
years, as it was a known problem. However, the clutch and flywheel had to be replaced costing $5500 at my cost. This was deemed wear and tear and my fault because I used the van for courier work. This van was not used for
courier work. Are these two issues related? Could the clutch wear out because the robot was faulty?

Clutches are deemed wear and tear items, which is why they wouldn’t cover the replacement cost. While 80,000 km is not a lot of kilometres for a clutch replacement it is getting near the kilometres that you would anticipate it. The two things shouldn’t be related, I would guess that they saw the clutch was nearly worn-out and it was deemed best to replace it now.
