Repair your Traffic gearbox

It is obvious that a transmission failure in a Renault Trafic 2 and other generations has a negative impact on your utility. First of all, the problem must be identified. Subsequently, replacement should be considered if no repair is possible. Find out the basics about this delicate mechanical operation that guarantees your safety on the roads.

As a reminder, engaging a gear ratio adapts the power transmission from your engine to the drive wheels. A malfunction would therefore automatically affect the vehicle's performance, reducing both your driving comfort and your safety. To avoid risks, it's best to learn to spot the symptoms that should alert you.

Be careful if you hear a noise in the gearbox of your Trafic dci 115, the gearbox of your Trafic 2.0 dci 90, the gearbox of a Trafic 1.9 dci 100 or any other version of this utility vehicle designed by Renault. It is also possible that you may hear crackling no ises every time you change gear or that your gears systematically slacken. Caution is called for!

The gearbox oil of a Renault Trafic 2 and other generations is another indicator. If it is very black, it probably means that an oil change of the gearbox of your Trafic 1.9 dci is necessary. Moreover, the gearbox should be changed regularly on all references as it ensures good lubrication of the pinions and all parts related to the transmission. Do not force the gearbox of your Trafic 2.0 dci 115 if it resists, thus complicating gear changes. This is a problem that can also occur on the gearbox of a Renault Trafic 2.5 d, the gearbox of a Renault Trafic 2.1d, the gearbox of a Renault Trafic 1.9 dci 100 and all other existing references. There is every reason to believe that there is not enough oil left or that the oil is too dirty to perform its functions. It is also possible that the gearbox is so badly damaged that it needs to be completely replaced.



The most sensible option is to have the part checked by a professional as soon as you have any doubts about its operation. You will then know whether you need to look for a standard exchange gearbox for your Renault Trafic or whether a simple repair is possible.


Choosing a gearbox for your new or used Renault Trafic

Renault's Trafic is a light commercial vehicle that has reinvented itself many times to better meet the expectations of private and professional customers. The manufacturer's objective is to ensure the vehicle's high performance, which has led to a series of transformations and improvements. Particular attention is paid to the elements that ensure the Trafic's manoeuvrability and reliability, which obviously includes the gearbox, of which there are various references, to mention only the gearbox for Trafic 1.9 dci, the gearbox for Trafic dci 115 and the gearbox for Renault Trafic 2.5 dci.

Before considering replacement, you should therefore start by identifying the reference that fits the version of Traffic you have in your garage.

The year of construction is a criterion that will help you make the right choice. The gearbox for a 1997 Renault Trafic is generally a 5-speed mechanical gearbox, just like the gearbox of a Trafic 2.1 d with 65 hp. The manual 5-speed gearbox for a 1997 and 2000 Renault Trafic 4×4 remains in the manual 5-speed models.

The gearbox for a Renault Trafic pk6 is compatible with vehicles built from 2004 to 2006 and again in 2008. The gearbox for a Trafic pf6010 is more suitable for models built in 2008. It is a gearbox for Trafic pf6 that can be found on most vehicles built in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2015. It can therefore be a gearbox for Renault Trafic dci 115 or another type.



The technical specifications of your vehicle will also help you find a compatible box. For example, the gearbox of a 2006 Trafic dci 150 is probably a 6-speed manual version, whereas the Renault Trafic 1.9 dci 80 bhp gearbox from 2004 generally offers 5 manual gears.

Maybe you have a problem with the gearbox of a Trafic 2.5 sofim or a problem with the gearbox of a Trafic dci 150? You already need to establish whether it's a 6-speed manual gearbox like on the dCi 120 engine or a 6-speed automatic gearbox like on the Energy dCi 170 engine or any other reference.

You have understood perfectly well, gearboxes are never the same and it is the interest to identify the one you need before the repair.


How to fit the gearbox of a Renault Trafic in standard or used exchange?

If you consider that you only have to dismantle, install and reassemble everything, the operation may seem quite simple. But the reality is quite different because there are several factors to take into account.

For example, the removal of the gearbox on a Renault Trafic 2 varies according to the engine, even if the vehicles belong to the same generation. This means that the removal of an 82/100hp Trafic 1.9 dci gearbox will not follow the same pattern as for a 150hp Trafic 2.5 dci gearbox. These differences are explained by the fact that manual, automatic and robotic transmissions do not work in the same way and therefore their configuration is different.

It is important to ensure that the parts are intact during handling. This is a precaution that applies to the gearbox of a Trafic 2.5l sofim as well as to the gearbox of a Renault Trafic 1.9 dci, the gearbox of a Renault Trafic 2.0 dci and all available references. Replacement will therefore follow a very precise pattern that requires the removal of fasteners, checking the condition of each part and then delicate assembly.



We advise you to seek the services of a professional to solve any problem with the gearbox of your Trafic dci 115 (or other engine). This applies equally to the removal of the Gearbox from a Renault Trafic 1.9 dci, changing a gearbox on a Trafic dci 115, checking the gearbox linkage on a Renault Trafic 2, changing the oil in the gearbox of a Trafic dci 115, replacing a gearbox for a Renault Trafic 1400d and more. Thanks to his in-depth knowledge and tools, the professional will be able to carry out a diagnosis and then an intervention in accordance with the malfunction observed.

By using a qualified craftsman, you also benefit from a warranty on the repair or replacement of your commercial vehicle's transmission.


Where to buy a gearbox for Trafic 2?

It is preferable to call on a specialist dealer, different from the professional in charge of removing the gearbox of your Trafic dci 115 or emptying the gearbox of your Renault Trafic 2, for example. Common sense dictates that you place the order yourself to avoid the price of the Trafic dci 115 gearbox being increased by the craftsman who acts as a middle-man.
