Clio g/box the final diagnosis
OK here goes.
Finally managed to get hold of a local auto specialist who can do Renaults.
Problem diagnosed as follows:
gearbox is indeed a 3 spd auto with very little electronic control (hence the electronics warning light not operating). This gear bos has a dual clutch system (one controls forward, one for reverse), the forward clutch has failed.
I am being quoted £650 - £700 for a rebuild does this sound resonable?
Hope this may prove useful to others who may experience similar problems.
