Renault Espace 2.2 dCi timing belt problems

I own a 2001 (Y plate) Espace 2.2 DCi. I recently had the timing belt changed at 5 years (40K) as Renault recomend. During the work a bolt seized and then sheared resulting in the need to take out the engine. The garage were unable to explain why this complication happened and said they had never come across the problem.

I was wondering if anyone else had come across this problem. Renault UK refuse to comment on whether it has been reported before and simply state that since it is out of the 3 year warranty it has nothing to do with them. Reg Vardy have been unable to give me an explanation.

This virtually doubled the cost from around 700 to 1300 which seems rather high for routine maintenance.

Hello Raybrettle,welcome to the forum.

That was a mighty expensive bolt......

We've done a few dCi cambelts at work without problems,so far.I'm not aware of anyone else having this problem either,so I think you were just extremely unlucky.

Do you know which bolt broke off,exactly?.
It seems a bit strange that the engine had to come out to repair it.I'm sure access could have gained by another meens?

Sounds a good price but the Espace is an entirely different animal especially when it comes to working space in the engine bay. You are not comparing like with like.
