Default fan belt shredded into timing belt

fan belt shredded tonight. problem is a bit went into the timing belt. i know there's damage don't know how much? it's a 2.5tdi 102 bhp. My friend is a fitter for renault he wanted me to ask if these engines bend valves? some of the renault engines don't do it. if they do bend valves then it's a big job head off, if not i could get away with new belt and set timing. Thanks for your help

you dont say if the timing belt has susequently failed ,if it has then valve damage will occur.

if its a case of the belt is contaminated with bits of drive/fan belt then get the timing belt changed and see how it goes from there..

and dont drive it till the belt is changed.

We had a cambelt snap on one whilst it was stationary, thankfully no damage done. Typical as it was on it's wasy to have cambelt change!! Towed it in, timed it up and thankfully it has been fine ever since. Another one went whilst the van was moving and bent 10 valves!!

I cannot stress how much we recommend changing belts regularly and straight away whenever you have a new van, it jus is not worth the risk!!

both belts were replaced by a diesel garage in swansea six months ago months ago! i was advised at the time that my power assist pump had a slightly bent shaft. this is what has caused the problem.

My mate had one of keys holding the pulleys on the timing belt go on a 1,9td and it killed the head but he was doing 90 on the m2.I had to tow him home.
