Re: clio cambelt?

Same question really.

Brought our daughter a 2005 Clio 1.2 16v last week. Fully serviced the engine today, and gave it a good going over.
To me it looks as if this engine is a timing chain ?.
When I looked up Clio on Wikipedia, it says the late 2004 and on has a new engine by Nissan. Aka the Micra engine.

Can anyone confirm this for me ?.
When I had the huge air box off to change the plugs etc, the end of the engine looks all enclosed in Alloy. Just like a Timing chain engine would.
