Re: Renault Scenic - Engines - Cam Belt Change


I've got Scenic 2005 with 52000 on clock and dealer service history/stamps in book from the M... in S.London.
An interesting thing, apparently it hasn't got the cambelt changed yet and after I asked seller why, as even if 72K not reached it's passed 5th year, the seller called the dealer and asked himself.
The dealer told him "because it hasn't reached 72000 miles)" and without mentioning the second rule of 5 years.

I wonder, why an authorized dealer wouldn't mentioned that, a just dealers' sloppiness?
Having longish experience with Skoda dealers in London, I'd expect dealers to drag clients in for cambelt change even if it is not necessary yet

No wonder I can't find any of the London dealers on the Recommended garages list

I'm going to replace it ASAP anyway (kudos to very honest seller who cut off 250 from the car price as he understood something is not right, we need more fair play like that these days!)

Can anyone recommend where to replace the cambelt in/around North London (the area apparently not covered by the Recommended garages)?
Unfortunately, my old-good local mechanic is strictly VAG specialist :-(

Currently in mloskot's garage:
2005 Renault Scenic II Dynamique 2.0 VVT
