The official answer would be yes, but I have changed a few Renault belts with no problems. I just used the old rule of being able to turn the belt through 90 degs at its longest point.
Remember though you are doing this AT YOUR OWN RISK . If you want to be sure then get Renault to check....
Hope this helps. Kind regards Oily.
