Megane Cambelt - Fibbing Dealer?? - stevehunt

I recently had the Cam Belt changed on my 1997 Renault Megane by the local Dealership. Shortly after the car came back I noticed that a bolt was missing from near the cam belt, I took this up with the dealer and they said that the bolt was just to hold the adjuster whilst they fitted the belt and they had kept the bolt off as they had been known to come loose and tear the belt.

It seems a little suspicious that they never mentioned this when I picked the car up - has anyone heard of this happening before or is it a ploy so only a dealer can change the belt in the future?.

Is the bolt in question near the top of the belt cover pointing towards the bulkhead in front of the driver? If so then I suspect they are being truthful.
