Basically locate the tensioner which is a round black plastic pulley,
it should have a 13mm bolt through the middle of which, and an allen
key hole as well? This hole may also be in the form of a torx ?
There are so many difference types of engine it would be difficult to explain all of them.
On some tensioners you must put your 13mm (long) spanner onto the bolt and lever it toward yourself (from front of vehicle), this will allow slack on the belt, dont let go, have your assistant pull the belt off whilst you hold the tensioner off.
Then simply refit the belt / fit a new one. Dont forget the way it is routed, i.e draw picture of how the belt sits around each pulley.

Hi - the way to enable code mode is to turn off the radio - then hold down 2&5 & press the on button - this will bring you into the 0000 code mode.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls

not difficult with the right equipment ,firstly you will need a special tool to lock the crankshaft in place ,then another special tool than aligns the tdc this goes through the cylinder block at the front right hand side by taking a bolt out in the block thats just in front of the bell housing .The special tools cost an arm and a leg trust me and then the pulley bolt has to be pulled up to 130lbs ,the bottom pulley does not have a keyway so without the right tools its very easy to let the engine turn and clout the valves which breaks the camshaft bearing caps with relative ease .the kit you need can be bought and its kit number AST4390 plus the locking pieces for the flywheel .This is not a weekend mechanic type job ,yes its easy with the right tools but even myself will slacken tensioner and remove the cam before i start so valves cannot catch when i turn engine over on starter with a big bar on the pulley nut ,then change the belt then with assistant holding a snap on heel bar in the flywheel ring gear whilst i hammer the bottom pulley bolt with the air wrench ,then use the 80cm knuckle bar and have a good grunch to make sure its really tight or it WILL TURN and the valves hit and break and imbed themselves in the pistons and smash the cam bearing caps .This is not a job for the faint hearted ,their is a timing mark on the flywheel looking from the top through a elongated hole and TDC is a longer tooth ,the inspection slot is about 3cms down from the crank sensor

SOURCE: WHEN TO CHANGE TIMING BELT
The Renault schedule for timing belts on the Scenic is 72,000 miles or 5 years. This applies to both the petrol and DCI models as both have timing belts not chains.
However, please be aware that it is common knowledge in the trade not to let the interval go past 40,000 miles because these engines are renowned for snapping belts at any time after 40k resulting in serious engine damage.
Haynes (who are renowned for their service manuals on many models) recommend a maximum interval of 36,000 miles between belts on this model which is exactly half that of what Renault say!
This information from Haynes is backed up by experience and reports from the trade on the common and unfortunate experiences of customers experiencing belt breakage at 45 k and below.
Hope this helps. Please do leave a vote for the solution. Thanks.
