Re: Renault Scenic service query

Agreed with all been said.
The damning thing would be to exceed the 72K/5 years between belts. Not to go past a nominal figure when it is solely written in the book assuming that the belt would not have been changed earlier.
You still need your 72K service and all it entails but not the belt. And if same garage who did the belt they could easily add a note to the service sheet that belt was not changed due to change at XXX miles and not required.

As for good practice, bet they'd have argued it was a necessity should you not have replaced belt and it had failed.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
