Thumbs up Clio 1.2 8v ***8211; Cambelt Replacement

hi all.

i am new to this forum and am after some advise please asap.

i am thinking of doing this job for a friend but need some info first or advise before i do this job.

apparently the person was driving the car at about 65 to 70mph then the car seem to die and stall ,no noises bangs etc , was recovered by recovery people.
suggested cambelt failure, as was not checked and over mileage for due change.
does anyone know on a 03 plate if cambelt has snapped will it do the valves damage too? or can we be lucky with changing the belt only?
anyone got a service manual please i can have for a 1.2 16v renault clio 03 plate authentique model.
thankyou to all whi reply and help me.

The chances of there being no valve damage after a timing belt breaks it about one in a million I'm afraid. But you'll not know the extent until you inspect the engine for damage.

When you mean "service manual" are you referring to the drivers handbook or a repair manual

A "Haynes" manual may be what you are after.
