Question about Renault SCENIC
Finding it hard to get my car into 1st 2nd 1nd 3rd
I am assuming its a manual, if it is having trouble fitting into multiple gears, its probably the idle gear, which is the one that should be going an appropriate speed when you are trying to mesh gears (with the help of synchronizers which could also be the problem) and if its not going the right speed, then it will have some difficulties meshing. try this method. when you are going to switch gears, depress the clutch pedal, pull it out of gear, then when still in between gears, let the pedal out, then depress the pedal again, and select your gear. this is the "double clutch" method that commercial truck drivers use with transmissions that do not even have synchronizers in them and should work for you. if this does not work (or if it does but its such a pain to you that you still want to get it fixed) then go to a transmission shop and have it looked at

The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.
In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.
Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

Purchase a gear shift repair kit for your car. They are pretty cheap. About 20 bucs. The ball and bushings are probably worn.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.
