My car stalls continually at low revs until it has been driven for about 5/10 minutes. I have been told it is most likely the Idle Air Control unit. Online forums tend to agree. I have a manual but there is no listing for this unit. Please advise

We don't have a manual for this vehicle because it is not offered in the USA but I tend to agree that the idle air control is the issue. Due to not having a manual, I can't verify this. I attached a picture of what I found for this part. I just don't have a repair guidance.

Here is the part number that I show for a 1.6L Megane: 7701047909 D95174.

The other possible cause is a dirty throttle body so I would suggest cleaning this as well.

Lastly, here is a guide that goes through the other basic causes of a stall at idle:
