    Usually not too bad, but what caused it to do that would concern me. Either one big bolt in center, or numerous around inside of it. has anybody been playing around that you know of?

Don't let it go, or you'll be sorry, it will cause a lot of damage if it comes off, plus wobbling on crankshaft is not a good thing either.

you need to establish if its bottom end or top end. if bottom end big end bearings have gone then its a big job ( easier to replace engine ) and if its top end ( cam ) then its a mornings job. big difference. hope this helps

Is fixing the alternator belt on a renault scenic an easy job?

No timing involved with the belt. Something caused it to come off if didn't break one of the pulleys it runs on can be locked up or worn so that it wobbles. Water pump pulley is most common cause of trouble.

How to change timing belt

This is how 2.8TD.Remove the belts (fan and power steering)with a 10mm socket un-screw the plastic cover. To remove the bottom pully their is 3 small screws inside the pully (10mm or 12mm) unscrew them and take off the pully. Do not try to remove the big nut. Remove the plastic cover. Their is a small hole in all the drive wheel's their is a treaded hole in the engine block behind each one and a mark on the crank shaft. Turn the engine until the mark on the crankshaft is at the top then push the bolts ( metric course tread 12 or 13 mm head 4 to 5 ins long) through the holes in the drive wheel's and try to screw them in if they dont line up first time turn the crankshaft 1 turn and try again. When they all line up screw in the bolds this keeps the timing in place. Release the tention pully (the one with no tracks on and pushing against the back of the belt) remove the old belt replace. To tighten the tention pully put a small socket bar in the square hole turn until the belt is tight hold the preasure on the socket bar ant tighten the locking screw. Remove the screws job done.

The large bolt holds on the lower crankshaft pulley for timing belt, the six small bolts hold the larger pulley that drive the alternator, power steering etc. It sounds correct.

Timing cover seal

You have to remove the belt, the power steering pump i think and depending on build date may have to remove the motor mount thats attached to the belt side of the engine. Also need to remove the harmonic balancer. Thats the big pully on the bottom of the engine. Gotta be care full to cause under that is a sensor called the crank sensor. They are very fragile and expensive. If you hit it while taking the balancer off or putting it back on the car will not run right. I would reccomend against doing it yourself as its a pretty serious job to do without special training.
