Re: Renault Scenic - Engines - Cam Belt Change

We've just had our cambelt done despite the service book saying it had been replaced 5 months ago by the previous owner...

We'd spotted an oil leak coming from behind the cambelt cover, and when this was removed, we discovered the hole wasn't mounted over the pin and the locking keyway had sheared off
Also, the garage who carried the work out hadn't used new bolts, which apparently is important as the bolts stretch and need replacing along with fitting a new cambelt.
Currently in lovethymini's garage:
2002 Renault Scenic 1.9dci, 1998 Rover Mini Cooper, Victory 8 Ball, BMW K100
