What would you like to do?
The top timing marks (Cam and injection pump) are easy to find. The cam has a hole for a timing pin to be inserted, and a mark on the pulley. Similar for the injection pump, there's a mark on the sprocket. These marks align with factory white marks on the belt (I used a Gates Powergrip one) The bottom pulley is a pig to align, as the serpentine drive belt pulley is not keyed to the crankshaft, so you need to get this off, set the timing at TDC, and MARK EVERYTHING CAREFULLY before removing the old timing belt. Hope this helps, Paul.

Thanks for the feedback!
could be egr valve, could be tdc sensor, could be fuel pump failing check for signs of this by sawing fuel filter in half and looking for metal filings with magnet basically f…rench rubbish with never ending rollercoaster ride of problem after problem wouldn't surprise me if a pound coin down the back seat caused it. as you can tell i own one. sorry for anger but my ca has been in th dealership longer since i bought it than before search the net and you will find i am not alone
Timing belts last 60 to 100 thousand miles, and should be changed accordingly. The easiest way to make sure your timing belt is in working order is to bring it to a local mech…anic.
Timing belts on a Renault Megane 1.5 diesel should be changed every 72000 miles or every 5 years, whichever comes first.
the fuel filter is located on the front left handside of engine near washer top up in the wing and yes you have to take halfn the engine to get to it. Driver side remove …front wheel remove plastic trim engine side and there is the fuel filter .

ive just purchased an 06 and it was carried out at 78,000. hope this helps,
Be very careful before you loosen the pulley bolt on the crankshaft. Most of these engines DO NOT have a woodruff key in the crank and once the bolt is loose the crank spocket… is free to move independantly of the crank. Make sure you have the locking pin set (3 pins, one of which is threaded) One goes in the camshaft at around 10 o clock, One in the injector pump. But the most important one is the one that goes into the block just under the starter motor. There is a male torx bolt to undo (fiddly) then the pin is screwed into the block as far as it will go. Now turn the crank shaft clock wise until the crank web just touches the pin and that's tdc. (I find taking the starter out makes it easier to lock the flywheel and mark it for tdc) To loosen the bolt on the crank pulley don't leae any pins in or you'll bend them. Use an air impact driver with the car in first and someone pressing the brake pedal. You can use a long bar but it's tight and you don't want to move the crank too much. Once you have done one it's easy. Sealy make the timing pin kits and some sell on eBay for around 13-15 quid. If your doing a belt then change the tensioner as well.

no you need timing tools put a timing pin in the block to lock the crankshaft and use the timing tool to lock the cams

Follow the clutch pipeline to where it ends at the gearbox. Push down on the clip closest to engine and open up the bleed nipple gently push down on clutch pedal few times til…l u see only fluid passing through. Repeat the process couple of times you should have a nice soft pedal. Its a silly design by the french auto once you know How u can excuse erm.
