    I don’t understand what your point is is, there is no problem I am asking what or why this is there not the fact of never seening any before or not?

    Had something similar on my 275 Cup-S, the rear seat belt message on startup would display in an Arabic type face instead of English.

    Never too much of a big deal, as rear seatbelt message disappears after a few seconds anyway, but had it sorted under warranty without a problem.

    As above, take into to the dealer and they should be able to sort it.

    From the mileage/mileage done screen, press the top stalk button twice, then hold both together, this should get you into the setting menu. Go down the menu until tick boxes turn into a circle, the first one should be the chineese writting=then a number, go down again, then press both stalk buttons again, this should bring up the language menu with tick boxes, press up or down until you see english, then press and hold both stalk buttons again, this should change it to english.

    Hope this helps.

    Well I took it to Renault and they said you’ll have to book it in, which is a joke as I’ve just followed your guide and hey presto it worked thank you very much
