Many original Renault parts are no longer available, but there are aftermarket alternatives for most parts you will need. A good trick for gas engine parts is to ask your local parts supplier to look up the 1989 Eagle Medallion, as it used the same engine as the LeSharo. This is only true however for mid 89-92 Units that use the 2.2L Bendix Fuel injection system. The oil fill cap is at the back of the engine if you have a Bendix unit. If you have a gas 84-89.5, then you will have the 2.2L engine with the Bosch fuel injection system. Ask for parts from a Renault Fuego, 1983-85 for these engine parts. Note that nothing else about the LeSharo is similar or the same as either of these vehicles. The LeSharo is actually built on a Renault Trafic chassis.
For more information, go to the Yahoo groups and join the LeSharo-owners group, it is filled with good information.

BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER
Ask for 86 87 Audi 5000 Quattro, which uses a 4 port master cylinder (H-body has 5) but the internals are the same (courtesy of John Ferguson). No kits available. Buy a rebuilt Audi unit and use the internals. Rock Auto (www.Rockauto.com) is one source. Audi uses a 1" and a 15/16". You want the 15/16" like the one fitted on an Audi 5000 CS Quattro (39.99$). Audi cylinder from Advance Auto Parts (number112042), $43.92 + tax + core deposit.

Fuel Pump RelayEdit
“Fuel Pump Relay”,”The Relay" or “Control Relay”, (different names, same item) is shared with the Renault Alliance/Encore (CA), the Eagle Medallion, Renault Fuego, Medallion, R-17, R18i, and Sports Wagon. Two varieties exist: MR-76 and MR-78. They are available locally at Advance Auto Parts and probably other franchise parts houses. MR-86 and MR-87 are Advance Auto Parts numbers for the Fuel Pump Relay. Larry Schoppe’s way of doing it is to take the part to the counter guys, give them the number and then compare. The Bosch 0280 230 006, which is located near the diagnostic plug, goes for 69.00$ at www.DIYAutoparts.com.
Fuel Injection HosesEdit
Large air hose between Air Flow Meter and the Throttle Body: NAPA #825-6028 will work in a pinch. The stock one gives better power on top end. The problem is that the stock hose is no longer available
