I'm new to the forum, but my RX4 forced me to look for places like these.
I have an issue with my RX4, when I select 5th gear, the gear lever goes to the 5th gear position, but when I let the foot off the clutch, it's as if the car is in neutral. I have searched the forum for the 5th gear issues, but all the threads I found were about 5th gear jumping out and that is not the case with mine. Will I physically see the lever jumping out of 5th as the other cars or is it different with Renault ? Even if I put the car in 5th and start it, it starts as if the car is in neutral. Please help!

Morning my good people.
My mech opened the gearbox and found out that 5th gear is broken and needs to be replaced. Any place to get the 5th gear set from ?

Well 5th is going to be meshing with other shafts also so they may not be in great shape either :(
Did your mech guy not suggest a reconditioned gearbox or similar?

Thanks coup.
He didn't mention anything about a recon box.
He said if we get the 5th gear set, we should be good to go as the teeth are broken on 5th. I can shift and drive fine in other gears.
