I had a quote from local independent for 165 ish, all in including pump. Maybe they were just being nice.

Re: clio cambelt?

About every 36000 ~ 40000 miles is the general rule, so if you're up to 117k after it was last done at 80k you're smack bang in the target zone.

I'd reckon a couple hundred quid or so depending on where you take it (dealership will of course rip you a new one, but be wary of chain or backstreet garages offering too-good-to-be-true prices). It's a bit of a hit, but totally worth it to avoid a failure that would basically kill the car - little value in rebuilding the top end of a low capacity, high mileage Clio engine.

Unless you've read the method and feel up to doing it yourself that is... done it on other cars before but wouldn't be confident on a Renault with amateur tools because the sprocket alignments are just friction based rather than keyed O_O...
