    Hey, I'm having a problem with my Renault Clio III DCI 1.5 2008. It appears that the gearbox is stuck in 4th or 5th Gear where neutral should be. To even start the engine you have to depress the clutch and when you release the clutch it feels like it's stuck in 4th or 5th gear. The gear...

    I have a 2001 Scenic RX4 Diesel 1.9 DCI I always try to use 5th gear when cruising slowly, but sometimes I have to keep going down a gear so the engine runs smoother. Does the 1.9dci require a faster speed to engage 5th gear?
  13. scenic missing 1st, 3rd & 5th. ***Fixed***

    Could still get 2nd, 4th, 6th & reverse. I removed the battery, tray and ECU. This gave reasonable access to the cable which had come out of a clip. I refitted the cable into the u shaped clip, cable tied it into place and refitted the ECU, tray and battery. Worked a treat! Hopefully somebody...
