    Renault trafic van gearbox...

    Bit of a long shot here, but we have 6 renault trafic vans of varying age at work. The newest two vans, one of which is mine, are 10 plate and both on about 35k miles. Both under warrenty so at the moment it's not a concern of cost but we need vans to do our job...

    Anyway, randomly now and again they struggle getting into reverse. Once stopped sometimes its nigh on impossible to find reverse. Doesn't matter how much dipping the clutch, revving, it just won't go in. Renault are taking one box out tomorrow to see if anything is amiss.

    Has anyone else got/had the newer age trafic and had/heard any problems with reverse? Obviously I know the problems with the rest of the box and swiss cheese resemblance. An Internet search didn't come up with much

    Re: Renault trafic van gearbox...

    From what I can remember its done it from new on both vans, mines certainy been from new.

    We've got six of them and had problems with boxes on 4, but they're still cheaper to run inc replacement boxes over a 8 year period than buying the other brands of van etc

    We've had one with the injector problem. The fuel pump breaks down and send aluminium swarf down the line to the engine. As its ally it doesn't get picked up by the magnets and gets through the filter. Ours needed four injectors and was had to come off. That was the same van actually that the box went bang on. 130k on one van and it's been fine since new

    Gearboxes
    Turbos
    Injectors
    Premature failing cambelts
    The problem is it's a Renault, I'm pretty sure there are 2 cables one for forward gears and one for reverse it's probably stretched

    I've had three trafic boxes rebuilt in the time i've been trading.

    The third is still at the gearbox place. 800 including vat for removal, rebuild and refit.

    The boxes on them are a pain in the ass. Only weak point on the van though imo. Bloody brilliant vans. Light years ahead of a transit.

    Re: Renault trafic van gearbox...

    With the reverse problem it might be where the selectors exit the box there are bearings that can leak
    Causing the problem so its box out time

    Re: Renault trafic van gearbox...

    your all getting mixed up with the trafic models early one are weak espcailly the gearboxs which are pk6

    facelift ones which have the 2.0 dci engine gearboxes are better but they are still stightly week and the code is pf6 iirc
    injectors are a problem due to water ingress but these trafics dont have a lot of problems really

    nick do you work for cf roberts?
