thanks for the advice
how much u rekon a cambelt change would be if it hasnt been done?
and if i was to buy it and is hasnt had a cambelt change then would u recommend i get it done sraight away?
If you take it to a Renault dealer your looking around 500-600 quid markm maybe more. But at an independant garage your looking at just over half that I reckon, could be a bit more though.
Yeah, if its not been done, negotiate the price down with the seller coz of this if you can and then get it done ASAP. The consequences if you dont get it done dont bear thinking about.
To fix an engine where the cambelt has snapped your looking at 700-800 quid at an independant garage to repair !
