Steering Rack, Cam belt etc etc
Just taken my Knaus (built on a Renault Master) in for a service and MOT, and have been told that it needs:
- a new cam belt
- a new steering rack
- new rear discs and pads
Is this normal on a 6 year-old vehicle that has only done 22,000 miles?
OK, cam belt is an 'advisory' - they tell me it is recommended after 6 years, and I'm not taking any chances with the brakes, but is it really necessary to replace the whole steering rack (cost £1,000)?
Back in my day you just changed the seals, but the bloke was adamant that it'd fail the MOT unless it was replaced.
Just wondering whether anyone has had similar experiences with a Renault Master-based vehicle?
