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!
Can I ask how much the belt change cost? Mine is an 03 and even though its just done 66k, its 5 years old this month and I guess I should bite this bullet.
