2005 Renault Clio Two Wheel Drive Manual 46000 miles
Hello. Having had my car in for MOT today I was advised that my there is a squeaking noise coming from the engine area. The advice is that this is likely to be the water pump and that it should be replaced with some urgency, as a failed water pump could also cause the timing belt to fail. They go on to advise that if the water pump is to be replaced, that I might as well get the timing belt replaced at the same time since there is not much more labour involved. Can you tell me if this all seems like sound advice. Having had my car serviced just over a month ago and been advised that they believe the very slight noise is likely to be an alternator fault which can be left to develop, and that otherwise the car is absolutely fine and that my car has a chain not a rubber belt in - it's difficult to know who to believe and the suggested work is not cheap. Thanks.
have the same problem?
