Phew! You had me in a sweat already... I had visions of having to get my toolbox out again.

So for an Espace at renault, it's ten quid for the belt and a grand for labour. Hmmm! plus the smash

Hi droidgolf

Please do not take this as advise, but just a statement of fact.

My 3.0 V6 24V has now done 81K and the belt has not been changed.

I do not intend to change the belt as quotes I have had are all around 2500 and that about the book value of the car.

I figure that if I have to take the engine out to replace the belt, I might as well wait until the belt breaks and get a good recon engine fitted for the money.

Red face Espace - servicing aboard?

Or simply drive the Espace to France - and get it serviced with the cambelt replaced over there. Heard its a lot cheaper over there for labour costs, compared to UK / London charges.

If I recall correctly, my local specialist in SE London wanted 600+ to do the job (yes, he said 10.5 hours) plus parts.

Anyone know the servicing costs aboard? Or the cost of replacing the cambelt, all inclusive? I couldn't find any detailed thread in the RenaultForums. If nobody know, I might post a reply in one or two months time after I've popped over to France for a 2-day break.

Drives a V3.0 Grand Espace RXE. Previous seller claimed that the cambelt was replaced just before I bought the car an year ago but would not supply any proof (e.g. receipts). Simply said that a mate did the job. Still not sure if I want to fork out to do this cambelt job this year whilst aboard, or just leave it as it is - and hope it'll be OK for the next few years (holding the previous seller's written claim on record, he stated that clearly on his eBay .uk auction description).

I know this thread is a bit old, but I'll try anyway...

I need the cam belt chaning in a 2001 3.0 V6. Renault have quoted 1,800 and a local garage I've never used 995.

I should also get the water pump replaced and the plugs chanegd.

Can anyone recommend a garage in London for doing this job? I was hoping to get it done for 600-700.

Espace V6 Cam Belt

Does anybody have advice on cam belt changes for a 3.0 v6 Diesel (2003 onwards) espace? the owners manual suggests 120K miles it could be argued it also suggets 5 years, the vehicle i have has full history but no record of a cam belt. i bought it with 30,000 miles on and it seems to me that if the first assumption is followed that i may never under normal circumstance need to change it...

any opinions gratefully recieved.
