Is it a big job and am i likely 2 encounter other connected problems in the near future? My ex husband thinks im mad but i really love ESPACES unfortunately im on a tight budget. Any feedback would be most appreciated THANK YOU

If your buying an Espace on a budget and you don't buy a good one your going to be in for a long rough expensive trip but on the other hand if you buy a good one thats been well looked after and well serviced then you could have a fairytale ownership so check this car over with a fine tooth comb yourself or have it done by somebody that knows what there looking for,i hope i have not put you off just a kind word of warning,what i will say is i have now had My 2002 MK III 2.0 16V Espace Expression for nearly 3 years and other than wear and tear parts this car had been good to me but then again i bought it with low mileage and Full Renault Service History so as i said History goes along way to help,

Now with regards to this DEPHASER SOLENOID i have no idea at the price of this part or the time it takes to replace but iam sure another member will be along soon to help,

All the best Donald
