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.

My best advice would be to go to a specialist who knows exactly what they are doing! We have had many cambelt jobs to rectify after an amature has attempted and failed!

There is no reason to go to a dealer unless you really want to pay their labour!
