Hi everyone I am looking to buy another Renault Wind and it needs the Cam belt/Chain replacing. I have been told by the dealerships mechanic that it dose not have a cam belt it has a Timing Chain is this correct as I have looked everywhere and I keep coming up with it being a Belt NOT a Chain.
It is a 1.2 TCE year 2010. is the mechanic correct that its a timing chain or is it really a Cam Belt. Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

I recently had the Cam belt and water pump changed on my 1.2 and it cost £400 all in, and took 5 hours to complete 😊

I'd be very worried about entrusting my car to anyone who didn't know it has a belt NOT a chain.

Was that from an official Renault dealership?

Hi Royston. Did you get your Cam belt (not chain😂), and water pump replaced at that garage in the end ?
