    Ah Thijs! I wish that I could fix it with a junkyard 2nd hand gearbox... but it is still £400 for a 2nd hand gearbox. It's more than the car is worth, and there is 101,000 miles (162,543kilometers) on the clock.
    I was an apprentic mechanic 30 years ago, but I only did 2 years and the company went into liquidation.
    With this Reault Scenic you have to dismantle most of the front end to get the gearbox out, I haven't got the garage facilities or the 8 hours spare to do this.

    Ah well!! The junkyard is waiting for my car, I am really unhappy it ends this way.

    that´s sad indead,just after a years check up.
    but why go you to a junkyard, dismantling company.
    the have good parts for low prices,so left only the labour price,
    or you´re self handy.

    This is my rides... last ride. Or it will be soon, something bounced up from the road and smashed into the gearbox of my Renualt Scenic.
    As you can see my car is now very poorly indeed, I'm still driving it around as the smashed gearbox casing is near the top... so the oil leakage is managable. Sort of!!
    So long as I don't go up steep hills the oil stays in the gearbox, I'm very sad because it's just passed it's MOT for another years driving.
    For a new gearbox it would cost £1,000 including labour charges. That's 3x what the car is worth!!
    Sad day, I'm missing her already and she hasn't gone to that unspeakable place yet.

    Anyway, here is the damage. Uuuulp!

    I would probably never buy a car from someone with that name either....

    Nice looking bike.
