Re: Timing Belt service and what to replace?
I have taken a look at the water pump that was removed. This was an orignal Renaul Water Pump from a Clio 1.5 DCI 2002, with 83,000 miles on the clock.
Its in Prime condition, nothing wrong with it.
I have found the garage has put a Circoli water pump in it, which I am not sure if this will last as long as the renault one, being the eurocarparts source Circoli from global suplliers, so cannot confirm:
1) the origin of the part
2) the make
3) if it conforms to OE
So my advise is spend the extra £35 on a Renault one = £65, and get them to fit this part.
Then you will have safe motoirng for another 10 years.
I have also examined the Conit. Cambelt and tenisioner, and again this was in prime condition after doing 35,000 miles and 5 years.
But then again I do drive my clio like a grandad now, getting 73 MPG even in this weather conditions.
Hope this helps other people out there.
