Gear Box gone....
« on: 16:14, Mon 16 June 2008 »
Does anyone know if any other boxes fitted to anything other than just the turbo are the same....Such as the 1.4 non turbo or any clio boxes?

Mine has just gone, but I was also about to put the car up for sale so don't really want to have to make any modifications to get one to fit.

Cheers

I think most of the JB range of gearboxes fit the 5 it's a case of the different ratios that will be the problem.

172 clio,
valver,
R5 / clio diesel,

The Clio 16V box looks the same on the outside. What hp/tq are the boxes good for before letting go?? Are there any strong ones?

I only asked as. I fitted a second hand gearbox to the charade gtti i had before. Bought it picked it up got it home, spent half a day fitting it to find that second gear wouldn't engage. I was thinking that a lower milage box out of something newer may be the way to go, compared to a box out of a 5 turbo with probably similar milage to the one that has just gone on mine.

Thanks for the advice.

Make sure your shift linkage is put together properly.

I used a Renault 19 16v box for a longer fifth gear, and can't remeber any problems with it, but was a while ago.

I heard that the Clio 16V had more acceleration but less top end. Is that true?
