Re: how many gears does a meganne 1.6 vvt dynamique have

1.6 vvt engines for meganes seem to come in 2 flavours. the 100bhp version has 5 speeds,the 110 bhp version has 6 speeds.
More generally 6 speed gearshifts are usually like a 5 speed except 6th is obtained by pulling the gearshift straight back from 5th to get 6th..
Depends where reverse gear is on yours.
If its where 6th would be its a 5 speed box, if you have to select reverse by moving the gearshift outside the 5th to 6th "throw line" its more likely to be a 6 speed box.
Either way its kind of unlikely that 6th would be totally blocked off if it was 6 speed.It might not engage or balk at engaging ..

Google your cars engine bhp , quoted max speed,final drive ratio of km/mph per 1000 rpm etc. there are "tables" and spec brochures out there if you google around.
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
