Hi I have a Renault Clio 1.2 Biarritz, Mk 1, phase 3, early 1998

(I believe the engine type is D-type, 1149cc, .. 'open valve/8 valve?')

The car has 62,000 miles on it so i am thinking of getting the cam belt changed. the thing is, i took it to a local mechanic and he said i dont have a cam belt! after the initial shock i asked him if he was 'nuts' (he didn't like that comment..) anyway, he then told me i have a 'chain', not a typical cam belt.

I'm thinking he made a mistake, so i was wondering can anyone confirm that i do indeed have a normal cam belt and not a chain? and if so i'm assuming i should change it since the car is nearly 10 years old and has over 60,000 miles on the clock

im not sure how to proceed, any thoughts anyone please?

Yes,your engine has a belt,and yes,if it hasn't ever been changed I'd get it done asap!

And yes,I'd find yourself another mechanic!:d
