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???

Currently in zx7rssb's garage:
