Renault Clio Autobox question - Yoby
My wife's Renault Clio auto is changing gear a bit clonkily and I think that it needs the fluid topping up. The only problem is that there is no dipstick in the engine to check this, only a rubber stopper stuck into a tube that goes to the gearbox. Is this unusual or am I missing something. Have oil ready, but do not want to put it in blind.

..I will be the first of many replies I think..

The transmission is sealed for life. Anyway, it is unlikely that a fluid top-up will do anything. Most people on this site will tell you that Renault auto boxes are a disaster waiting to happen.

Only consolation is to take the car to a reputable auto transmission spcialist for proper assessment: it maybe a simple repair. Try your luck.

My first inclination would be to get rid of it ASAP - Renault auto's always end in tears.
