Thanks for that diagram mate it's ideal
Got this off yanoo a while ago.....
Hi mate any chance you can price up for all the moving/wear parts in the above diagram and also the rod itself to the gearstick and a brand new gearstick assembly? Any chance you can pm me the prices and also screenshot of the parts so I know what the price are for? Thanksno 12 is a common bit to wear
Thanks it could be, We have tried eliminating various things and can't seem to make it any better so just going to try a full refresh I think and hope for the best!Surely the main wear is actually on the gear linkage rod from gear lever to box? Because it has 2 plastic/rubber bushes either side which wear down which then gives the lever a more of a sloppy feel ?
Item 12 can cause huge play in the whole linkage if it's worn. If in doubt it's suggested to change it (its ref. number: 77 00 872 205 and approx £4 from Renault). As Danny said, Item 10 sometimes also can cause play if its bigger ball is worn or snapped. Only older Renaults use rigid plastic ball (it tends to snap or wear off), the newer ones use a flexible resin ball. Common problem that the bush of this small rod gets worn and results huge lateral play at the gear knob. I have a small metal bush for replacing this one, but my bush cannot be fitted if the long linkage has got a 'built in' pivot.
Attempt to Take out circlip,
swear when the 4 different sizes of circlip pliers you have won't fit
fight with it for 10 minutes until all blood has left your arms and it finally gives in
12 will pull apart, and probably fall to pieces so you can't see how it should go back together
put 12 back on yoke,
push back into gearbox,
remove and try again the other way up
attempt to refit circlip
push like f**k to make 12 go in far enough
attempt to fit circlip
hit 12 with something
Relise you should have greased inside 12 before fitting, so remove circlip.....
Sorry what?! lol I mis-read that at firstOh and put a little white grease on ball end
Haha that sounds more like I imagined it from looking at it the other night lol! I will await my cir-clip pliers not fitting and go from there
