£700 to £750 - which is a pile of cash, mine is being at a main dealer but my local garage would not be much less - He's said it's a real pig of a job.There is a nasty suprise, if the gasket has failed because the head has warped then it will need skimming but you can't tell until the head is off.i got mine done for 200 at a garage in notts called skeavington

seven hours of labour at £39 per hour is what I was charged at my local garage to change the clutch in our Renault Scenic. Comments anyone?

The symbol used on the Renault Scenic for a problem with the radiator is a thermometer. There should also be a temperature gauge on the dash that shows the current temperature of the radiator fluid.

The egr valve should be in the top of one of your valae covers.

This should be done every 36000mil or 60000 km to be sure, they are rated to last as long as 100km but you needs to take driving habits into consideration.

If you needed a gasket and they replaced it then yes you would be charged for the gasket.

To change the passenger headlight on a Renault Clio, one should open the compartment and remove the rubber seal from the back. From there, the bulb holder should be removed by twisting, then a new bulb should be inserted into the holder.

It depends on what model you have it should be in the complex plumbing on the right as you look at the engine inside a metal or plastic housing on the end of the cylinder head. Hope this helps.

if its Scenic 2 - just pull back the break (left to steering wheel (for European cars)) and it should show you on display that break is on. start driving and it will release itself! if its Scenic 2 - just pull back the break (left to steering wheel (for European cars)) and it should show you on display that break is on. start driving and it will release itself!

This is an answer in general not just for a Renault. In general a camshaft does not wear out very fast. A camshaft should last for the entire life of the engine. If you ever take the engine apart for a rebuild you could inspect the camshaft then for wear.

The service engine warning indicator, on the instrument panel, is an indication that the oil needs to be changed. Change the motor oil and the warning light should go off.

There is a simple solution for this.First disconnect the battery terminals and then reconnect them this should reset all faults and errors.

Get somebody to push on the bonnet whilst you are trying to pull lever. This should do the trick then lubricate all moving parts of the catch mechanism.

The fan belt cannot be tightened. The scenic has a tention pulley that automatically adjusts the belt. If the belt is slack, it is either the wrong size or it is stretched and needs to be replaced immediately as serious damage can occur in the event that the belt should slip off.

Possibly but only very slightly. When you turn on A/C it should idle up a bit, and the vacuum will advance ever so little

Remove the old filter and make sure you remove the old gasket, there should only be 1 gasket.
