thanks Little Daz, that is useful to know for future things.

It is indeed all sorted.

When I went to the garage, they did make me feel better about spending money though because apparently a bloke had been in before me and had a Renault Espace and needed a Cam belt change and Renault had quoted him £2k to do this because the design meant that the engine had to be removed to do this! What a bad design.

Thank goodness we all have galaxies!

(in the end the garage I went to drilled a hole through the body work to release the nut and bolt (the only reason why you had to take the engine out) and did it for £500)

 Hi  Daz

I've always thought myself lucky that I've never had a car with a cambelt.  Am I right in thinking that my camshaft is chain driven?

I would love to take my car to little Daz but I need it to drive to Liverpool (120 mile round trip from my house) most days so I can't really fit in the travel.  I have to take car to garage on a day I can squeeze it in and then get it back ready for next day (whilst working at home in between)

We do have loan cars available for situations like this Hannah Wink.

As long as you are sorted, that is all that matters.

When i come for my service /mot any chance of an R8 for the day Blush Thumbs Up Cry Laugh

Errrrm!! Not to be too blunt.......not a chance! Grin

On a serious note though Ray, if you do need transport (A3, A4 or A6, depending on what's available on the day), make sure you give the service advisors enough prior notice, 'cos they book up fairly quickly! Wink
