Re: Renault Trafic gearbox problems
Having had the (dis)pleasure of repairing a PK6 box, I'd say make sure the gearlever doesn't move forwards/backwards as you take up the drive in any gear, as this is a sure sign that the shafts are moving around, which they shouldn't!
Oil level is critical on these, as is the correct (expensive) oil, so check for leaks around the driveshafts etc which could indicate low oil level..
Having said all that, once the box is out, it's a relatively simple repair to replace the problem bearings with new ones, from memory it cost me around £50 in parts to replace both sets..
