    Whats a rough estimate to cost, i think it may need doing soon

    Its just a standard 1.4 2000 clio

    and are most mechanics capable of doing it, or should it be best left to some specialists such as renault themselves (although i would get bummed on the price no doubt)

    hey, best bet is just to phone around local garages and ask.

    i recently had my 1.2 2001 clio cambelt, waterpump, alternator belt and all tensioners changed for £267 and the garage seem to have dont a great job, they were just a run of the mill garage.

    hope thats of some help, russ

    3.1 hours or so to do.

    I'd take it to someone with the right tools.

    Parts are about £100.

    Ring local Renault dealers though for a price I'd recon you'd get it done for £300 or so from a dealer

    is this this same sort of idea for 1.6 16v? (k4m)

    mine is getting done soon

    surely any decent garage can do it?

    Anywhere with the Renault tools yes to many engine have been ruined by places using hand made tools or having a go.

    Same thing for a 1.6 though same engine as the 1.4 realy.

    If you use a garage who don't have the right Renault tools your asking for a new engine. Go drive somwhere if you want it doing and don't trust local dealers.
    Thats way to check thats not including tensioners Belt along from motorpart places can be got for £30 or so then a few hours fitting which sounds like what your being charged. you need to chnage the tensiooners which comes in a kit from Renault. Renault don't sell the belt seperate.

    Not chnging the tensioners is tpuid not much more money plus Renault tensioners are terrible anyway so not chnaging them asking for them to fail or need changing agaianw hcih is a belt off job in which case you need to replace the belt again.
