Hello johners and welcome to the Renault Forums :)

Does your car have VVT? if it does the dephaser pulley doesn't have a guard. I would think that the damage to the guard is probably as a consequence of the belt failing. It's the crank shaft sprocket that usually tracks the timing belt. This is a 2.0 cylinder head and is very similar to the 1.6. I would straighten the bent one out the best you can and re-use.
