Just bought a Renault Scenic RX4 with a locked up gearbox.
Was a serious noise when we moved it in the street then it jammed in gear and now can't get it out of gear.
It's on a hill so i jacked a wheel up to unlock it but it must be in the gearbox casing.
Does the 4WD box use any bits from the 2WD box?
There is no oil on the ground so the diff hasn't torn a hole in the casing, no mainshaft noise with clutch in.
*Gearlever won't get you into neutral.
It did when i first started it to move/test it .
Some say 5th gear comes lose or selector fork problem like on Peugeot 206 boxes?
The problem becomes is it just better to convert it to 2WD?
Renault Scenic RX 4 gearbox problems
I know why Renault RX4.
The fifth gear broke and damage some of the other gears.
I have received quotes of +R20 000 on a second hand gearbox and R46000 on a new gearbox.
My question is, can I convert this vehicle into a 2 wheel drive and use the standard Renault Scenic 20litre 16v gearbox as a replacement. "
