Just been stung for this amount to fix the gearbox on a 3.5 year old Renault Laguna (59,000 miles). Dual Mass Flywheel, Clutch, bearings and idler gear. Took the car to Renault Dealer (Ness Motors Perth) - couldn't diagnose the cause of the whine from the gearbox. Took the car to James Allan (gearbox specialist in Edinburgh) - diagnosed the "Renault Gearbox" problem in 2 minutes flat. There's a design fault with this Dual Mass Flywheel arrangement (common across many if not all Renault gearboxes) which everybody seems to know about apart from Renault - who washed their hands of the problem. Real classy Customer Service - NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
