Espace 2.2 DT servicing


I am currently looking at this car on ebay : Click me.

So it reads that it has a problem with the exhaust, so i thought i would ring my local dealer and establish how much a compleate replacement would be, including cat. While i was there i added a few things to the shopping list to see what future costs i may be looking at:

72k Service [includes all fluids] 370.00
Cambelt change 842
Cat back exhaust 471
Cat 541
Front and rear discs and pads fitted 660
x4 new tyre's premium brand 400
Air con re-gas 80

Total cost for a 'few bits' 3364

Suddenly the car appears less of a desirable used car. I will consider all my options before buying but it is amazing how quickly things add up with a few replacement parts!

Be aware buyers

I doubt you'd pay anywhere near that at an independant though!

When I had the discs and pads replaced on the 911 it cost less than that

Maybe one of our Renault indy friends could give you an idea of costs

Espace 2.2 DT servicing

Just bought a 1998 Espace 2.2RXE and decided to have the cambelt changed, the local Renault dealer wanted £701.19, another dealer (different town) wanted £519.75. Renault Specialist (Gloucester) wanted £390 which included the other belts.So I took that one and all was fine. They charge £60 for regas which includes a system cleaner & a dye to see if there are leaks. Another mobile mechanic I had before also did the same for £60, he also does a service for £149 and substituted fuel filter for spark plugs. I was in Halfords the other day and they charge around £60 for a regas as well.

I'm going with MjmPropman here. My RXE has 140,000 and the original front brake disks are still init. AND my MOT man says they are fine. I broke my cam belt last week. It was fixed in TK Engineering of Dagenham for 1100 squids of which £325 represented a 'normal' cambelt change, £325 represented a new camshaft [you just wanna see the state of the old one which had NOTHING to do with the cambelt. It was just worn out. ]£325 represented all the work TK did. AND Gordon Brown got £120 at the end of the job for his VAT.
BTW, London and home counties Espace owners! TK are very experienced at this engine and this job!
