Re: Renault Scenic - Replacing The Manual Gearbox Oil

I was looking into replacing the oil in the wifes Scenic and thought the 3.1 litres Halfords quoted was quite a bit but see that's it's probably right then! Why they can't put this information in the hand book or even the Haynes manual is beyond me

I see mention of a whine in a post above that is noticable in 4th gear only, now, I get a whine under harsh(er) acceleration in 1st gear and very occasionally in 2nd gear. At first I thought the noise sounded like air being forcably sucked into something as it appeared to be coming from the drivers side of the dash/engine bay area??

I shall change the gearbox oil and see if that cures it, failing that I've just rectified some noises on the Scoob that I thought was the gearbox and now I gotta start worrying about the Scenics

Re: Renault Scenic - Replacing The Manual Gearbox Oil

I assume it's not mentioned in the handbook, or Haynes manual, because the gear box oil doesn't need to be changed under normal servicing, just checking the level and topping up if necessary. However, I agree it would do no harm to tell owners the gear box oil capacity.
