good work mate. I have heard people have had dramas with timing belts so i think it would be best to use caution before it is fixed.

 

172's rock..

Haha! Thanks guys! The workshop charge me $770 in total for change timing belt

Is that reasonable?

And the car report said the clutch's pick up point is too high

Is it normal for clio? How much for changing an oringal clutch?

 

Anyway, its gald to be here as i had been struggling for buying a clio

That is a reasonable price. Paul@ Autoparis does some of the work going on around here.

 

Most guys will state here that the 172 clutch "bites" too high. IMO that's normal. Price for that, someone will post a price for you. :mrgreen:

 

Make sure she warmed up before you take her to the red line...

 

 

 

Safe driving, we want to read the first post. Not something else :wink:

Hey mate, u could get it done for $580 at Alpine Affair in Ringwood

 

Are you sure about that HASH?

 

What do they charge for labour?

 

The timing belt kit alone costs half that... It's a whole days work isn't it?

 

Goodluck with your car kfc!

Well done KFC, and welcome to the forum! :)

 

Don't change the clutch, you'll get used to it pretty quick, and it's totally normal. Save your $$.

Definitely get the belt changed. Sounds like you guys in Sydney have pretty good prices for that service. Here in SA, around $1K is average, and there have been reports of way more than that at our only Renault dealer!!

Yep thats how much i paid, the owner Colin said that the guy who does the timing belts on the renault's has done so many now he can do them in about 3 hours so thats the main reason he can charge that cost.
