Re: Laguna 1 Gearbox Mount
I can be tootling along at say 30-40mph and then put my toe down to accelerate more and the car picks up slightly but the revs shoot up too - almost like it's not in gear.
Definitely sounds like a clutch issue.
The longer you run it with it slipping, so the more wear you will put into it, and risk an expensive repair.
Look at the clutch release lever, and see what it is impacting on (when accelerating) and this movement is the one you want to try to replicate (pull the engine, etc) so as to find out which mount is moving too much.
Depends on which mount it is, as to how hard it is to change. Some are simple torque links, some are fully load-bearing mounts. Let us know when you've found out the mount that is moving too much..
