Re: Renault Clio 2 - 1.2 16 Valve Engine Noise*FIXED*

I have the same issue. I recently bought my 1999 Clio 1.2 off my sister as she'd had it from new and I thought it'd been fairly well looked after. It's done 105,000 miles and has the same issue as above.

Worried, I asked her if she'd had the cam belt done to which she can't remember and has no recepit for it. So I'm bricking it now.

How much would I be looking at for changing the cam belt??

Can anyone tell me what engine I have in my clio? Is the timing belt a job which can be done at home? Or does it require specialist tools?
I've looked at the D4F engine belt replacement which doesn't seem too bad, I just don't know if that's the same engine I have?

THanks for the help,
