I have always done all my maintenance myself and intend to do so on this car aswell.Not getting the service book stamped doesn't bother me too much as i will keep the car till it won't be worth much anyway.I gave up caring much about any car since the second non fault accident when some T**t T-boned me.I look after and service what iv'e got but certainly never buy a new one.I looked back at your posts and noticed a mention of tow bars for this car.I need one cos i am going to tow a caravan.Any idea how much a new bar fitted would be ? I priced fitting one to my old 2L petrol Espace and i couldnt buy one cheaper than 180 so i gave up and had it fitted for 200.It was not worth bothering myself.

Re: Renault Espace - Engines - 2.2Dti engine - Thrust washer failure

i have a dti 98(r)reg 2.2 espace mk3 with 195,000 on it,it gets well used daily with dogs kids,even had king size matress folded inside with four of us in it along with two peoples luggage.what a unrivelled versatile car,id be lost without it,"touch wood" the engine seems fine,just had to replace drop link,heater plugs (thanks to this forum i didnt have to remove inlet manifold) and put cv boots on for mot,along with small weld to inner sill where previous owner went over large rock which creased and eventually rotted the failed area,sounds alot but great for the 500 quid i paid for it,hope yours brings you the joy and help that mine has,good luck. martyn.
