Hi all,

I have a question that is worrying me, but I've got to ask this question anyways because according to 1 place, this is a 'known' issue but anyways.

My girlfriends bother has a older Renault Clio, I think it's the MK1 version, anyways, recently, not to long ago, his Clio had a issue and is now being repaired.

I asked the place to let me know what the problem was so maybe I can help make sure it does not happen to me.

This is what they said;

It is the guide plate that stops the cambelt from jumping of the pulley that broke and caused the cambelt to slip a few teeth and he bend the 8 of exhaust valves

Is this something common? How can I avoid this happening to my MK2 ?

If his car was a Mk2 phase1 Clio 1.4 / 1.6 with a twin cam 16v engine then yes, they have a guide ring on the cam pulley that can fail.
All the models with similar engine can have the same problem

Yours is a 1.2 16v using only a single camshaft and you don't have a guide ring on your cam pulley.

Not seen anyone on the forum mention a problem about a pulley ring on a Mk2 1.2 engine.
