    Hallo all,
    I have a 1987 le sharo based on renault trafic FWD,which is notorious for problems with the autobox.
    I want to convert this to a manual gearbox and or other engine gearbox type.Does any member have any info as to who has done this e.g. an audi or other fwd unit or perhaps renault 5 speed manual box.

    We get this question asked quite often, do a search and you will see the answer vary rarely differs
    You are going to need a retired or part time mechanic with a lot of interest and little else to do
    these conversion jobs are fraught with problems often not discoverd untill the job is well under way some fixable some not
    The cost is extremely prohibitive to have it done in a working garage

    Hi a manual box should fit stright on :thumb: Not entirly sure about where you auto shift is but if you make sure you get all the gear stick and or any linkages all should go pretty stright forward :Smile: A COUPLE OF HUNDRED QUID SHOULD BUY A SECOND HAND G/BOX EASY,THEN ANOTHER COUPLE TO HAVE IT FITTED-PS get a new clutchassembly as well so £500 should do it easy
