Re: Renault Scenic - Engines - Cam Belt Change

As a rule of thumb, I've always taken the view that if a car has done more than 45k miles in a previous ownership, get the cambelt and the tensioner etc replaced.
The cost repairing the damage caused by a snapped belt is several times the cost of a belt replacement. As to when a belt should be changed it dependes how old the vehicle is ,mileage and how it is driven- How long is a piece of string??
