...as it needs a new gearbox.

my engine mounts went a month ago and the engine dropped onto the gearbox, this must have broken something inside and its come out last nite through the gearbox casing, making a massive hole.

so im guna sort the gearbox and then maybe sell it for a 106 gti

only had it 10 weeks

there are loads of places you can go, it's not a bad job as i done mine recently.

BB tuning do it for 800
Renaults charge 470 for recon box but as your casing is broken they will add a surcharge.
5alive could provide you with a second hand one!
There are a few going on Cliosport if you enquire.

I did mine in a week and that was evenings only !

If you could get the car to us then we'd be happy to do it.

you'd be a fool to sell it, as you could repair it for

200- 300 second had box
all other bits from BB tuning:
Engine coolant 15
Gearbox oil 16
Clutch 77 if needed, but recommended.
Power steering fluid 10

Job is fairly stright forward, and the wiring loom and ECU comes out with the engine.

R5 engine is very prone to blowing head gaskets. if your going to put a turbo in the 16V then you need to do the BB tuning conversion 315BHP from the low compression conversion.

a brand new reno one will be 800
i could get a 2nd hand one for much cheaper

the expensive part is the labour costs as the whole engine has to be lifted out
