Re: Renault Espace - Gearbox Recall On Late Models

I once had the differential explode on a BL Metro 1.3. The differential pin came loose, then when I took a left-hand bend the wheel speeds changed and the pin got rammed between the gears with a huge BANG.

The car stopped of course leaving a trail of oil . The bang was so loud people came out of their houses to see what had caused it.

If the Renault problem was anything similar, I don't blame them for doing a recall.
Currently in Ben Detoy's garage:
Espace 2,0T (2005) - BMW R1200GS Adventure (2008) - Suzuki GT750 "Kettle" (1976) - Cannondale Jekyll 1000 (2004)
