Renault Avantime - Auto Gearbox Differences

My Avantime needs a new auto gearbox. It's a 3 litre auto.

I have found a box - an SU1 002 box. This is found on the laguna 3 litre 2002-2006 I think.

The Renault dealership say it needs an SU1 012 box.

What is the difference between the two boxes?


Cheers

Hugh

Re: Renault Avantime - Auto Gearbox Differences

Hello Hugh.

I am in no way an auto box expert,but the differences between Renault box types can either be a subtle ratio difference which doesn't effect the fitting of a different box at all,or it can mean that the casing is different meaning that it won't fit.I would hazard a guess that an Espace box from a similar aged model would be a better match than a Laguna box as the mounting places and ratio's should be similar,but thats only a guess.Hopefully someone can give you a more definative answer soon.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Hi
In which part of UK are you as I might know where to find a gearbox from an Espace v6. I will try to contact the bloke and ask him to check the numbers tomorrow weather permitting.

Re: Renault Avantime - Auto Gearbox Differences

I recon the laguna box would fit as i have seen 1 in a v6 laguna and it looks like the newer v6 espace one

Older v6 espace and lagunas had the same box codes may well have been different but box was the same

Is your v6 the later type if so then that is what was in the laguna i seen
