Espace V6 Cam belts or Cam chain?
I'd been led to believe that all V6 Espace's needed their cam belts changed at 72,000 miles/5 years.
Having just had my 54,000 mile service I spoke with the garage about the costs of this - so I could start to save!!!
When checking on the Renault system, it would not call up the details for my car. I was then told that at some point Renault changed the cam belts for a cam chain - and the dealer would look in to identify which engine mine was.
Obviously if mine is a cam chain engine, this would save me at least £1000.00 in servicing as it would not need to be changed like the belts.
Can anybody help me confirm independent of the Renault dealership how I confirm which type of V6 I have???
