New member first post.

I've just bought a 2 year old sport tourer which has now got 45k on the clock.

The gearbox seems to be graunchy especially getting into 3rd gear, 2nd is not much better!

Anybody else had similar?

I will take the car into the local dealer as it is still under warranty but I was just wondering if it is a common fault.

Cheers

Bought my Lag at 49k and my gearbox sounds like a bag of [email protected]# too, particualrly if you drop down from 5th to 4th and back to 5th again, oh and 1st is sometimes difficult to select.

(dont know why i just didn't buy a Mondeo TDCi)

I also have similar experiance with my 52 1.9dCi.

I find that when the engine is warm AND you drive it hard then the gear selection is OK. However, when driving from cold and in-town, the gearbox is very clunky and feels like you're damadging the gearbox by selecting gears...

My PK6 back in gear

I'v been having problems with my PK6 six speed box to. When changing up, mainly 3'rd, the gears would crash and grind, over the past month it's been getting much worse, like 3'rd i would have to put a lot of quick force to ram it in gear, so thismorning I had the box oil changed. The box is so much smoother now, if feels like a new one, no more crunching, just floats into gear, wow.
I brought 3l of TransElf TRP 75-80 just under £50 from a dealer and paid £10 for an independent garage to change the oil.

I drive a 2003 Laguna II and my gearbox went totally at 50k miles. It started with crunching in 3rd gear.I will never buy a renault again after this one.
