3.0 V6 Dci - timing belt

Hi all

Have one of these and have recently received a reminder from the selling Renault Agent that the car is coming up to 5 years and the timing belt needs changing. I went straight to the service booklet to check - this specific engine and model is listed as 120,000 miles but no time specified for the change. I have since spoke to Renault Customer Service who have confirmed that the change should be done at 5 years or 120000, whichever is first.

Off now to negotiate the belt /pulleys change price!.

Merely a cautionary note for those like me who thought this expense was not about to hit them!
