Re: What to look for on buying Megane 225

On the assumption that the 225 has got both a cambelt & dephaser pulley I'd double check that they've both been replaced.

At Renault price you're looking @ around 400 for the cambelt + roller + tensioner.

No idea what the dephaser pulley would cost to buy, but IMO @ that mileage they both need changing, oh damn it, & the water pump too, this is to save the duplicated cost of labour later.
