Re: VOLVO S60 2004 D5 3RD GEAR GEARBOX CRUNCH
Sounds as if a synchronizer is going out in 3rd gear, or 3rd gear maybe stripped. I would get it checked by a tranny (transmission) shop before it ended up costing you more money. There is a possibility that there may be some shavings on that gear as well, which would just need cleaned.

manual ,well try pumping some grease into the gearbox your problem is a worn baulk ring on the syncro and to fit a new cluster is a gearbox out type repair job.More that the car is worth no doubt so add a grease gun full of LM grease to the gearbox and learn how to double the clutch so you can change gear without a crunch .
Sounds like your dealer is feeling its way. which sensor did they say they changed and why. Do not pay for this ****, you took it to the dealer with a warning light and they say they changed something in order to attempt to cure the warning but they failed. About as much use as changing the seat covers and emptying the ash trays! When you say noise, is this a squeal, a crunch, is it continuous or is it during change gear. Does the car slip when in gear, is there vibration.
Check your engine oil and transmission oil levels
Hi It is the syncromesh, inside the gearbox, difficult to repair, most often you need to replace the gearbox although someone who was familiar with Renaults be able to, is yours the hydrolic clutch or cable??
If its the cable type you may be able to adjust it so it does not pop out of gear, but you will always have the little crunch coming down into third.
