    Hi all I have recently bought a 1.4 16v megane. It has full service history but no history on a cam belt change so I thought I would change it. All went well apart from the camshaft pulleys where very slightly out but I got it to fit, I thought this would be ok as it seemed to be running ok...

    Being a careful type at the end of Feb this year I had my cam belt and tensioners replaced on my scenic 1.9 dci having covered just over 50k (£300 +). Last week my car suddenly stopped.
