    Default Laguna 2 2.2dci timing belt costs

    Hey all,

    Advertisement


    Im looking at a used 2.2dci laguna. Its done 100000ks year 2006. Owner doesnt think the timing belts been done so if I buy it I should get it done.

    Anyone got any idea on the rough price I should be paying to get this done?

    For peace of mind I'd estimate around a grand, if Scenics are anything to go by........anyone else?
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    If the owner "doesn't think the timing belt's been done" you can be sure it hasn't.
    If it's been done the workshop will put a sticker on the belt cover or the radiator support panel with the mileage and date it was changed. A 10 year old car should have been replaced a couple of times by now.

    What Kim said, about a grand if it's the belt/idlers only.
    Not sure if the 2.2 diesel has the water pump running off the timing belt but if it is you'll probably have to replace that as well which of course will be extra.

    Cheers

    Ummm.
    Why don't you call your local dealer and ask for an estimate??

    G'day Dbol, I just recently did the timing belt on my R19. I replaced the belt, idler bearing and the adjuster bearing. The parts cost me around $180 from memory. Like Ren said, chances are it hasn't been replaced. I was in the same boat. I had no idea when the belt had or hadn't been replaced. For my own peace of mind I decided to do it regardless. I found the job fairly easy to do and had enough access without having to remove anything. If I'd taken it to a mechanic I would have expected to be up for some $400/600 in labour. Yours Sincerely Shane.

    Come on fellas, I am trying to be polite here.
    I know we are all trying to give some sort of advice to Dbol...but...
    A 2.2 DCI is TOTALLY different to other engines.
    e.g. does it have a cam belt at all? Should the harmonic balancer be replaced? etc.etc.
    The logical thing to do is ask the intended mechanic for an estimate...NON??
    And please, Dbol don't entrust anyone who hasn't done the exact same job before.

    There ya go...
    Just Googled a couple of youtube videos of a 2.2 Espace.
    Does have a cambelt, needs special tools - i.e. locking pins etc.
    Also has timing gears which supposedly can give trouble and
    should also be renewed.
    Simple reaaly...

    Barely relevant but my 2007 Scenic belt kit cost about $250. Total job including water pump change, coolant and accessory belt around $1000. Mine had never been changed either! Cheap insurance I reckon.

    A tutorial here, too:

    [Laguna II] 2.2DCI-150cv-Echange courroie de distribution. -P0 :: Plančte Renault

    The author only touches on it, but the motor apparently has a bolt you can remove to mechanically pin/confirm TDC ("PMH") near the oil filter.

    Different motor but my Scenic hadn't been changed either and it cost $800 and a bit by local Renault agent. They said the water pump was ok so it wasn't done.

    Essentially the same cost then.
