Hello and welcome to the forum.

I can't help on many questions in your posts as I am not an Espace expert,but I can tell you that 700 to have the belt changed is a very good price.As far as I know the engine has to be removed to changed it and the labour charge can be huge,so 700 is a bargain..If your in any doubt as to whether the belts been done and you plan to keep the car then I would bite the bullet and have it done.

The spare key may need reprogramming if the battery has been flat in it for any period of time,I'll have a look and see if this possible to or a Renault only job and get back to you.

Edit;My info on the keys is a bit hit and miss to be honest,so I'd try a new battery,if that doesn't work then get back to us and we'll try and give you some more specific info.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
