Re: Buying 2nd Hand Megane

Mk1 or Mk2

Unless it can be proved otherwise a cam belt and water pump change will not be long before its due NOT AT ALL CHEAP, & catastrophic if ignored.

If it's a Mk 2
I'd want to hear the engine started up from stone cold, the first start of the day would be good, listen for a bag of nails that may go away when the engine gets warm in which case the dephaser pulley could be on the way out, this is not cheap either.
Currently in hondo's garage:
