Could be similar......
I've had a similar noise and under similar conditions - its gradually got to the point where it does it all the time and now in 2nd - but all other gears are fine - still cruises really well. Does your gear lever move as you pull off in 1st and is second beginning to become tough on the first change of the day? Mine is a PK6 6 speed box - notorious as I am beginning to find out........
Anyway now been told by local garage (which I trust) that it needs a new box and guess what - its not the first time the box has been changed. I bought at 42k and after some cunning investigation have tracked down the car's history - a complete box change under warranty at 37k and also at the same time new fly wheel and clutch. So I'm on 92k and this second box has managed only 55k miles! What a load of rubbish...so I think I've got some grounds for some help from Renault - the 6 speed box quite obviously just isn't up to the job. I'll let you know how I progress - first e-mail sent today - but I expect the normal fob off and then we'll hopefully begin to have some sensible discussions. As Yann Vincent, Senior Vice President of Quality Control (Renault) commented recently in Car Magazine August 2007 (relating to the Laguna 2 Phase 1) ***8211; ***8220;It was clearly a disaster"! Its a really interesting read for any suffering Laguna 2 Phase 1 owners! I live in France ans even here the motoring press say the Phase 1 is awful for reliability - but two years in the Phase 2 doesn't appear to be suffering from similar quality problems according to the same French motoring press.
