Renault, Faurecia collaborate to extend lifespan of electronic parts
In-vehicle infotainment, ECUs, dashboard systems – all these electronic assemblies in millions of cars are now typically disposed of when they no longer function properly. To put an end to this environmentally harmful practice, Renault and Faurecia have signed an agreement to repair such defective components. The agreement applies to all brands.

Through this partnership, Renault will be able to provide its garage and repair partners with access to the repair of more than 1,000 products on 23 vehicle brands, including the entire electronics repair catalog of the business specializing in onboard electronics. Customers will thus be able to have a very competitive alternative choice compared to equivalent new parts.

Each product entrusted by Renault to Faurecia Clarion Electronics will be diagnosed, repaired and finally checked before being returned to the garage within three to five days on average, the agreement enshrines.

This activity is in line with the circular economy as it considerably reduces the use of resources and energy by extending the life of original equipment, the partners assure. "In addition to our remanufacturing and repair activities, which will be developed within the Re-Factory in Flins, we wanted to integrate a multi-brand electronic parts repair offer in Europe into our networks, in order to meet the needs of our customers looking for an economic and responsible offer”, explains Xavier Kaufman, Director of Parts and Accessories Program of Groupe Renault. “The development of the sale of services and spare parts from the circular economy is key to preserving resources and reducing the environmental footprint. It is an important part of the Groupe Renault's commitment to carbon neutrality."
