The gear box has a problem. For example I sense in the gearbox lever the things that I do with my acceleration pedal. If the car accelerate, the lever moves backward on its own for a fewmillimeters. If I take the foot off, the lever moves in front. With none of my other cars I have everencountered such a problem. It feels like the gearbox is not properly fixed on its place! Is not the end of the world but isannoying.I think if it is to be a fault, I still have 4 years of warranty. In 4 years, if this is a fault, it should crack:)

Keep us posted! Mine has a noise but when the service chaps took it for a spin, he just said it was a normal diesel 1.5 engine noise. I'm still not convinced. Mine happens in third gear when upping the revs to change into fourth, sounds like the engine is protesting. My diesel is far louder than my husbands 1.9 diesel vectra through the gear changes.
Someone else on here had a noise and theirs was a loose breather hose. (Think that's what they said)

I'm just driving it, it's a lovely motor but it's got a noise, which either will get worse or stay that way. I have found mine prefers damp weather over dry hot days lol.

well took the car in yesterday they had it all day yesterday and most of today.they could not find a fault so theygot in touch with Renault who said it was transmission noise.so if it is what Renault say why did it not do it when I first had the car and did not hear it for the first 3 months plus if it does it in 3rd gear why not the rest.the engineer took it out twice to road test it but did not do what I told him to do.so it will be going back next week until they sort it.and they can give me a curtesy car.also I will ask if the engineer that tested itwill come out with me and I will show him what I mean.

Least you know the car is safe if no faults found.....annoying though when you know it has a noise but they can't or won't hear it. Good luck next time it goes in, keep us posted.
