Renault Megane - Engines - Auto answers?

I've taken the sick Megane in for a look-see at the gearbox. Which has lost 3rd and 4th intermittently (this morning it was back to normal at first, then as it warmed up it jumped into 2nd with a thump and stayed there).

The error code suggests a solenoid has packed up. I don't really understand autos, but I presume that's to open and close a valve somewhere? Luckily it's all under warranty.

It's going to our local auto expert in Weston, who reckons he can fix it without having to drop the box out of the car. I will insist on fresh lube while he's at it. Since he's got it at least partly apart anyway, is there anything else in there that commonly packs up that I could have replaced now?

And what exactly is 'safe mode'?
