re: WELL IT HAD TO BE TOWED BY AA

I had noticed a radiator leak, and had been topping it up with water, it made a really bad noise the day before, and the day after brokedown and aa came and towed it away. apparently i had a 72000 service in june and maybe i have a case because it wasnt recommended

If the belt hadn't been changed prior to the service then it should have been changed along with the tensioners.

What age is your Scenic?.

The cambelt should be changed every 72k or 5 years,which ever comes first.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune,but welcome to the forum,anyway.:)
