Re: new scenic owner needs autobox advice

I would have thought the 1.6 would have a different bell housing and the gear ratios would be different, also the ecu in the scenic would have problems trying to adapt to a 1.6 box.

I have a auto box from a 99 laguna 2.0 8v, I took the box out of a doner car myself when I brought my old Laguna as a precaution to the box in that failing. As it happend I drove it over 100k without any problems, but kept the spare box when I sold it. It would be the same box that's fitted to your scenic and I would be prepared to sell for the right price!.

The hydraulic solenoid block would need swapping over with yours and the old oil drained completely out. Its been sitting for around 3 years so it would be a good Idea to fit a new filter and oil seal to the torque converter shaft.

When I took it out I was assured it worked as it should, but I only have their would for that as you only have mine!.

What area do you live in?
