I think the cam belt needs done at 5 yrs or 72k, whichever is sooner. I'd just get it done if it's almost 5 yrs old. Can be very, very expensive if it goes - I was over £1000 for repairs when it went on a BMW before the specified time......
AGE is the factor on a cam belt ... rubber deteriorates - cam belts can go at any time with no warning. Put your hands in your pocket ..... I certainly wont buy a car off someone who couldnt afford to have the cam belt done on time... what other things has he been putting off???????
get it done but not by renault, probably £250 or so from an independant garage, I paid £75 3 years ago to get my 205gti timing belt done, turned out it had been done already, its like an insurance policy, piece of mind.
