PARIS/TOKYO -- The abrupt removal of Renault CEO Thierry Bollore clears away more baggage from former chief Carlos Ghosn's leadership of its alliance with Japan's Nissan Motor, leaving two new management teams to discuss changes to their partnership.

Bollore was ousted Friday by a decision of Renault's 18-member board, with three abstentions and no opposing votes.
