You maybe already aware, its a job lot.

Cambelt, auxiliary belt + rollers tensioner, & water pump.

Renault ATM charge 398 & this is without the water pump

Re: Possible Grande Espace Owner

Would it be possible to fit a mk4 Espace rear chair (with its integral 3-point seatbelt) into the foot track locators of a mk3?

Ello, I'm afraid I can't help with that idea, my Grande had the less exclusive 3-position seats ;-) if you can get a measurement I can check it against mine and maybe post you a picture of the tracks and the holes into which the seats lock?

Re: Possible Grande Espace Owner

If the cam belt is old it could fail any time so get a disclaimer signed if you borrow the car to try it out. If I were buying anything with a dodgy cam belt it would not turn a wheel until the belt is changed. Over cautious? maybe but Ive experienced new toy syndrome (not a Renault) and a broken belt after 2 days.

Also check the air con and alectric hand brake work properly. If OK then its likely to have been reasonably well looked after (if not by current owner).
