Megane cambelt

Postby paulrob100 » Fri May 11, 2018 10:02 am

A friend has a 2007 2.0 Megane convertible, & has been advised that the cambelt is due to be changed. He has been quoted £585 by his local garage. Does that sound right ? It seems a lot to me.

Be very careful who does it, on that engine they are very easy to get nearly right, and only a few people get them really right.......main dealers ......independent and specialists alike, there is a set procedure which varies away from the Renault book even IRC, and parts that should be changed whilst you're in there...........I've been in there, and depending on car that engine is in, it's a brain fryer, floating pulleys etc etc
Diamond in Nottingham would be my first choice, only from what I've heard, not from experience, but i think Cliosport forum posts will point you where else to go.

Anyone who says they're APOP..........well done , good for you. I'm an idiot.

one tooth ...just one tooth .....

Yes ...be prepared to argue it's not right if it's not right. That price I gave you is from a std garage database programme, parts + hours allowed.

Thanks for that Lee. It’s really interesting. I think the guy who’s given him the price is a general garage.
