Re: Espace V6 Cam Belt


Has anyone done this themselves?

I've bought a 2003 V6 that's done 124,000 miles and has no record of a timing belt being done in the service history (which is otherwise excellent).

I'm good with spanners but don't have anywhere undercover to work, or any engine lifting equipment (could hire possibly).

I've seen people saying it's 10 hours labour to do the job, is this the Renault number, or is it what indpendents have charged? My local garage charges 40 an hour, with the kit at 180 that's close to 600 for the job, not too bad as I got the car very, very, cheaply but if the work can be done in less than 10 hours with some black magic then I'm open to suggestions
