Re: car will start and go in gear but wont move

hi and welcome to the forums

hmmm.... the gearbox Differential may have failed, any rattely noises at all ?
its that or a internal bearing has failed.
yes its repairable, but will probably be about the same as a secondhand gearbox.
part cost approx(for a secondhand one) 100 or so and 150-300 to fit.

Spare parts available for 2001 Scenic 1.9Dci, 97 Lag1, 02 Lag2.
everythings gotta go....
cheap prices...
Currently in mord's garage:

Re: car will start and go in gear but wont move

what part of the UK are you, someone might be able to suggest a breakers yard with 90's laguna's in.
the older ones are tending to be squashed as they come in.
you do also need to find out what you have, you need to match engine to gearbox as there are variations.
