Possible accesory power relay staying on due to an internal fault. It is above the fuses in the glovebox. Try sitting in the car, locking it then giving the relay a tap

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.

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.
