Gear linkage bush

Postby paulrob100 » Sat Apr 09, 2016 8:30 am

I think I can remember reading somewhere that the GTA gear linkage bush (the one at the gearbox end) is prone to collapsing & thus meaning a gear cannot be selected. Is this correct ? If so is it worth replacing the bush while I have the car off the ground. Mine seems to be ok but I would rather change it while I can, rather than be stranded if it fails. OR am I being paranoid ? :crazy

Paul, ..... as you are a Full member and have access to the RAOC Members Area, if you go to page 2, and scroll down, you will find a comprehensive explanation entitled "Gear Shift Bush Replacement" dated April 15th 2013. You might find that helpful. :up
If this bush has never been changed, you would be wise to do it whilst you have the chance .... they are not expensive and available from Renault ...... around £5 or thereabouts.
This info is only available to Full Members ....... non members can access this info by becoming Fully paid up members. :wave

I've got the same issue - had my gearshift come completely loose from the linkage and now the car won't get in gear at all. I live in Canada, but I can call up Renault and order some bushings - do either of you know the part # or what I should ask for when I get in touch?

Thanks a lot!
