Can anyone give me an indication of the cost to change a cam belt on a clio 172 (2002)?

I phoned my local renault dealer (wolverhampton) and he said most cam belts cost around £400 but the clio 172 is £700 (which is more than my mortgage!):( are they trying to rip me off?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to the forum!

Not sure they're trying to rip you off - Renault belt changes are not cheap! Some are as much as £1200!! They do not build them to be user / service friendly - some cars need the bumper removed to change a bulb!!

I'm sure someone will be along to advise you soon!

Good luck and welcome to the forum!

The 172/182 cambelt change is not easy, due to a cramped engine bay.. So the price you have been quoted is pretty reasonable..

Thanks for the response

Thanks for the response. If the £700 is a fair cost then I can have no complaints.

Your advice is appreciated.

Yes this is a very reasonable price, I have just been quoted £680 from the Oldham Renault, Paul at RS Tuning has quoted me £429.
