Question about 2005 Renault 181
I have had my clio since feb. It has done about 40,000 miles and been working fine until now. I got in the other day and set off driving, it went fine in first gear but when i changed to second i had no drive going through and it was just reving up with the clutch pedal up fully. where will the problem most likel be? The clutch or gearbox? And where shall i start looking first??

First check to see if the driveshafts are turning, they are the things that stick out either side of the gearbox. start engine put car in gear. and let the clutch up, if you have no drive, open the bonnet and see if the gearbox end of the driveshaft or the wheel end of the driveshaft is moving. if one or the other is (remember to look both sides of the gearbox 2 driveshafts) you have a driveshaft or hub fault. If all is well and nothing is loose or moving the problem is either clutch or internal to the gearbox. this will require removale of the gearbox. approx 5 hours labour remove and refit plus parts required on inspection.
