Hi. First up from my experienece Renault gearboxes are not there strongest point, I have had 3 renaults and had to replace 2 gearboxes. The Megane 'box won't fit onto a Laguna, although there are now several about in scrap yards so finding one should'nt be difficult. Expect to pay 50 - 100 for a good one. Again from my experience try to buy one with a warranty. It just gives a little piece of mind, although this wiil be a little more expensive it is worth it. A typical warranty period is 3 months.
Hope this helps.
