    I assume you’ve checked out the information in the owners register? There’s an entire thread dedicated to #192, not sure you’re likely to get more info than what you find there but you never know!

    Thanks Claude. I searched on 192 but found nothing! To the uneducated (me) do I need the # ?

    Cheers

    If you search for ‘Renaultspeed’ you should find the thread.

    I agree, although I didn’t see any mention of the aux belt being changed. Worthy of a check as they’re every 36k / 3 years I think.

    Assuming it was done in Jan 2016 when the cam belt was changed then it’ll need doing soon.

    Assuming it wasn't changed when it was supposed to have been (Jan 16) would you be walking away or thinking, OK they got lucky and change it now?

    On re-reading it looks like it probably was done in Jan ‘16.

    No reason to walk away, just a consideration that it needs doing soonish.

    Where did you read that Claude?

    Timing belts were changed by Wests at 54,694 in 2010 and later at 106,942 by Rentech Ltd which included the dephaser unit

    ?

    Thanks

    ‘belts’ not ‘belt’ was my interpretation, plus a specialist like Rentech is unlikely to do cam belt without aux belt I would have thought.

    Not sure how relevant it is, if it was me I’d get it done ASAP whether it was done in Jan 16 or not.

    Agree. I didn't see anything about the Sachs?

    Thoughts on the price. They are defo going up! (Been a couple of years since I looked)

    Thanks.

    After checking with Renault, the belts are due every 70k miles or 5 years

    Cam belt yes.

    Aux belt, I still believe is 36k / 3 years. It was originally higher but was revised down. That’s my understanding.
