    Icon5 Renault Clio Sport 172 - 2003 Gearbox rebuild

    Hi all, can anyone recommend a good Auto Shop to rebuild the gearbox in my Renault Clio Sport 172, in the Brisbane, Gold Coast area. Synchro is failing in 5th gear on up change.

    Do you actually need a rebuild?
    If all your other synchros are OK and all is well otherwise, the problem could be confined
    to 5'th gear only. Any gear whine in 5'th?
    I would have expected synchro on the upshift to 5'th from 4'th to be dead easay.
    Have you got someone who knows Renault to diagnose?
    Correct oil? etc.
    You can access 5'th gears and synchro within the steel housing without necessitating gearbox
    removal from the car. If the gearbox has been previously been apart, check that the oil feeder
    is still intact. This innocent piece of plastic can often be overlooked. Its job is to pick up oil
    spun off the gears and redirect it back to the right areas.
    I have also seen the gear train locknuts come loose and cause terrible sounding gear noises.
    You never know your luck!
