Renault Timing Chain, Timing Belt and Cam Belt repair, replacement, maintenance and service


The timing chain, timing belt and cam belt are a crucial part of your Renault engine. If these components fail your Renault car or Renault vehicle will come to a grinding halt. Sudden engine stops when the timing chain, timing belt or cam belt fail can lead to expensive engine damage.

Renault Timing Chain, Timing Belt and Cam Belt replacement, change, maintenance, repair and servicing from our garage workshop 

Here are a few helpful tips to help you recognise when you need to bring your Renault car or Renault vehicle in for a timing belt, timing chain or cam belt maintenance and service.


– It is advised that when your Renault car hit’s 40,000 miles when out on the road you should get your timing chain, timing belt or cam belt checked over. Leaving these components clock more miles without being checked can lead to failure causing more damage to your Renault car or Renault vehicle.

– If you are hearing big clunky noises coming from the engine then this is a sign that you have a timing chain, timing belt or cam belt problem on the engine.

– If your Renault car or Renault vehicle comes to a grinding halt, then sadly the likelihood is the timing chain, timing belt or cam belt has snapped and this is the cause for loss of drive.

– Heavy vibrations are a classic sign that you are having problems with the timing chain, timing belt or cam belt.


We service hundreds of Renault timing chains, timing belts and cam belts every year. If you think you have a problem then get in touch, we are here to help.
