About Gear Linkage

The Grand Scenic Renault gear linkage is a sequence of parts that connects to the gear stick and allows the driver to change gears. In a gear change system there is sometimes a rod attached to the gear handle which runs straight down and is attached to the brake pedal arm. At the end of this rod is a lever, near the brake pedal arm. There is a cable that runs from the firewall to the Grand Scenic Renault linkage. When the driver moves the gear stick the linkage system pulls or pushes on the cable. The same process happens on the transmission linkage and changes the gear. Some gear linkage systems work in a similar way but don’t use the rod. Instead the movement of the gear handle creates the necessary pressure on the cable.

The most common symptom of Grand Scenic Renault gear linkage failure is a difficulty shifting gears, particularly between 1st and 2nd gear. This may be accompanied by a grinding or crunching noise when attempting to change gears. This is often caused by the ball joint part of the linkage wearing and popping out of its socket. This will need to be replaced before improvement will be seen.

Renault trivia

  • Nicole? Papa? The Renault advert that ran up until 1991 made actress Estelle Skronik more recognisable than PM John Major and TV host Chris Evans, and the advert finale was the single most-watched advert of all time (23 million Brits tuned in to watch it).
  • The Renault RS01 was dubbed ‘the yellow steam engine’ after it became the world’s first-ever turbocharged F1 car. It wasn’t a reliable car, but it was certainly quick!
  • Renault are obviously well known for their motorsport successes, but did you know that their early, groundbreaking work on car body mathematical curve modelling was one of the starting points for today’s computer graphics?
  • The fastest Renault ever made is the 1978 Alpine A443. It raced at Le Mans, and even with a less than intimidating 2.1ltr V6 engine it still managed an incredible 236mph.
  • The aluminium-bodied Renault Spider was essentially a race car that had been built for the road. Models sold everywhere, but it was only those that were sold in the UK that came with windscreens, which must have meant a lot of bugs in the face for French drivers.
