    Default Renault Engine Belt Change

    Hi owners of Renault cars with engines F4R K7M K9K 1999-2007,there is a change from 6PK to 5PK drive belts,evidently there can be some serious engine damage if the the new-recommended 5PK is not fitted in the correct grooves in various applications.
    I got this info from a Gates info bulletin,so consult your local Gates dealer for the details.
    Last time I said that I wouldn't post again but is important,so if there is any smart arsed backyard expert out there ready to yap--take Gates on this time.baz

    My Scenic was rejected in a roadworthy inspection recently because the inspector noticed the 5PK belt and said it had to be 6PK! I told him the belt was correct but I don't know if he believed me.

    What??????
    That's like saying I'm going to fail you on your roadworthy because you have the wrong oil in it.
    Madness.

    Powering Progress? in belts, hose & hydraulics 5PK Micro-V AT Belt Change on Renault Engines.
    This link may work-I don't care if it doesn't.
    Mr Feugo,you are one of the ones I was worrying about,buy a Hyundai it fits your skill level.
    I never cease to be surprised-even after over 50 years in the motor repair business how many people seem to be constantly displaying their lack of real mechanical ability,they should keep away from all but very basic cars especially European makes,these need to be serviced and repaired by genuine and dedicated mechs.Or people who do lots of homework and have an affinity for gaining and retaining knowledge.

    How can one tell ones skill level by looking at a screen?
    Been working on cars for yonks.
    My answer alluded to "mechanic mind your own business, give me a roadworthy, not a critique on what's been done".
    Sounds like an Brussels/EU method of telling people how to do things.

    Shonky mechanics - that's another matter.

    In some respects, I can understand why. You only need to be caught out once performing an overtaking situation to then have the wrong spec belt fail at the most inconvenient time.
