    Clio 197 36k service... WTF!!

    I have just been quoted 400 for the service and then 270 for the aux belt. Er... WTF?

    Told them that was ludicrous... So he was ever so kind and said he would do it all for 600.

    Surely this is well overpriced? Anyone from Renault advise on this or members who've had a 197 36k service?

    Rang another dealer who quoted 315.65 for 36k service. They said the aux belt didn't changing...

    The service book says it doesn't changing until 72k...

    From what I have read on this forum everyone says the aux is to be changed at 36k...

    I rang Renault uk who said it was needed at 4 years and then changed his mind to 5 years or 72k...

    Jesus wept... Are we right or Renault uk right? I am sure we are right with 36k but someone needs to clarify this...

    Pretty sure it's an inspection of the belt at 36k.

    I work for Renault aftersales, and according to Renault the aux belt doesn't need changing till 72k on a 197.
    I have just looked up a 36k on a 197 and it comes to 380 INC parts labour and vat.

    What actually needs doing at 36k then?

    Also Alex, any chance of looking up what a 1st service SHOULD cost.

    Get it serviced in a National or kwik fit type place under 100 quid. Out of warranty anyway I presume?

    You would be better off not bothering at all, they will put the wrong oil in.

    Just make sure they use genuine parts, I know everyone says they do but most don't. That because most have a much lower labour rate and charge less for the oil, the spark plugs though are 67 + vat!!

    yep I know. It was either at 3 year service, or if you achieved 72k before 3 years it was at 72k miles.
