Just joined always had diesels this is my first Renault after the previous 4 cars being the Citroen grand c4 the Kadjar was a complete change for me. I use the car to shuttle for school runs and have done just over a 1000 miles but Monday my husband noticed a smell either brakes or clutch coming from the car we took to Renault and have it booked in for a check in the new year and told nothing to worry about. But we have never had this before should I be worried the smell has lingered for the past 4 days and even when the bonnet and windows have been left open the smell still remains. We also noted that there is a symbol of clean air which shows very polluted which Renault say is nothing to do with the car but the air outside is this true? We are getting concerned as Renault advises if there is a clutch issue and found to be owner related we will have to pay costs. The kadjar is manual 6 speed diesel. My husband has driven the car on the motorway on the weekend thinking this would help if there may have been a spot of soot build up but it’s still the same. Any response gratefully appreciated.

Hi Yes it is for pollution coming in from outside suspect if you go to rural area it will show ok . Now as to smell may be clutch or brakes , has to be said most clutch issues are down to driver, now that said if you have had difficult hill start and slipped clutch for a while to get moving you may get a bad smell from clutch and it can linger for a while if clutch is working ok and not slipping you may well be ok and I personally would not let Renault pull it in bits and chance paying for it unless they are definitely calling it warranty work 🤔
