I contacted several online car breakers on Friday and had a reply today from one. They give a 90 day guarantee so hopefully the component will work once installed and if not I'll get a refund - they had good reviews, so sound reputable. Was about £17 including next day delivery - fingers crossed I can actually get it installed ok!
jonnypb, did you find it difficult to remove? Any tips?!
Funnily enough, as I said in a previous comment, I took the old one to a party last night to try and test it. I met my host's son who had trained as a motor racing mechanic a few years ago and then was the manager of a garage. He said that those parts all seem to go wrong on any make of car, particularly Renaults, I think. As I was showing it to him, another party guest said he'd just replaced something that looked the same in his daughter's VW. The ex-mechanic said that a garage might have to remove the whole dash assembly to replace it if they weren't able to do it by fiddling about the way we have - so would probably cost an arm and a leg as well as the cost of the part!
