The day has finally come to have the gearbox in my girlfriends 197 swapped. It had the wonderful fault with the crunching syncromesh (i think British leyland may have supplied the boxes to Renault...) We had the car mapped by Paul at RSTuning and at the time he had a red 197 in that was having a megane engine put in, this lad had a spare box he was going to put in the car before his engine went. its a 2008+ 200 box, which apparently have slightly different ratios?? looking forward to seeing if theres any difference of revs-speed?
