Renault specialists or Forums....

hiya all

need a hand if possible

my mum has a renault espace v6 and the cambelt needs changing. her regular garage said that they cant do it but Renault dealers want around 1300 for it and the spark plug change (plugs alone take 3 hoours apparently...)

anyway, does anoyone know of a renault specialist in the South East or of any good Renault forums that will be able to help?

Re: Renault specialists or Forums....

Just done a quick search and that price seems what it costs due to it being an engine out job...Don't know any Renault specialists but there are plenty out there.
