Exclamation Renault Espace - Engines - 2.2Dti engine - Thrust washer failure

Has Renault solved the problem that apparently blights the "previous shape" Espace 2.2 diesel, where the thrust washer on the crankshaft usually fails at around 80,000 miles resulting in a bill for a new engine? There were widespread reports of this failure a couple of years ago on many forums etc, sufficient to put me off buying an Espace (I bought a Galaxy to accompnmay the Scenic instead). I'd like a current shape Espace diesel (if I had the money!) but won't buy until I know that the problem has been fixed.
Any forum members know about this issue in more detail?

The 2.2 dCi is said to be the worst engine in the Renault range according to a lot of online discussions. HOWEVER - this is the most popular engine for fleet sales, and this fact could be quite meaningful. Hopefully, somebody with some knowledge of the problem might come across this thread - so subscribe to it to get an email alert

I've found reference to a 2.2 dCi recall to avoid some crankshaft pulley problem,but can't find any specific details. If you are looking for an Espace diesel, get the VIN number and you can check if any recall work has been done via a main dealer. There is also _supposed_ to be a panel of blue stickers inside the engine bay. If this is absent this could indicate that no recall work has been done

According to Honest John, the only recalls for the latest model Espace has been due to electronic parking brake failure. That's not accurate, I suspect, because forum member OG had his Grand Espace gearbox replaced under warranty due to some suspected fault or other

Yep - Honest John warns about this particular problem in the earlier model range, but not on the new ones. Looks like you might be Ok!

As far as I am aware, it was the 2.2dTi that suffered, the 2.2dCi engines were sorted.
