I have just bought a 2010 Renault Clio expression, and 1st gear is absolutely terrible. It just doesn't go in properly and also it has popped bk into neutral about 3 times.

Is this an easy fix??? the other gears are fine.

Could mean that selector fork is naffed or helical gear is shot..can also be that the rear dog bone mount is shot so I would check that out first

I'm taking it to a garage on Friday but the problem lies with 1st gear the rest seem to be fine. Just wondered if this was a common fault?? or if it was expensive to fix??

Yes a common fault and if they are checking it make sure your with them when they check for a broken dogbone mount..reason being some unscrupulous garages would be happy to supply and fit a new box when its only a broken mount which of course they will swap anyway to cover themselves..do I trust many garages..short answer..NO!!!
