    Default Renault Clio Sport 172 - Jumping out of 4th Gear

    Hi all, any clues on what could be causing my gearbox to jump out of 4th gear. I recently replaced the engine and gearbox, so could it just be adjustment of gearshift?

    Many thanks

    Try checking the dogbone mount under the car. When the bushings split it allows a lot of movement which manifests as the gear leaver waving around a lot.

    The dogbone is only held in with two bolts, no need to support the engine. Remove the stock bushings from the mount and replace them with Powerflex Purple poly bushings, not hard to do. It increases NHV a little but firms everything up very nicely.

    Haha. That was really cryptic Pete. Took me ages to work out what was going on until I read the name on the post. You know there are some days Pete, were I would give it to you ....... with pleasure.
