SOURCE: gearbox oil

there is a pan at the bottom of the transmission that you can drain the fluid from.... you'll need to get a new gasket and it's a good idea to change the filter at the same time. usually you can buy that in a kit that includes both... most automatics don't have a drain hole. but be aware that you have to make sure that that is the correct transmission fluid for the tranny.
also realize that draining the pan and changing the filter is good maintenance but there is still a large amount of flud in the torque converter and transmission cooler.

I'm not sure how advisable it would be to mix the two types of fluid

changing the filter might be a better option... also when you do that there is a small magnet in the pan ... it catches any small metalic flakes as the bands wear.
and while you have the pan off you can adjust the bands... you'll need a manual to make suire that is done properly... that is if that transmission requires adjustment.... as far as i know the new electronic transmissions don't need to be adjusted.

Renault gearbox warning light on ...


There is lots of people out there that think the problem is to do with a pressure switch. In a way they are right. As the transmission fluid gets old it's viscosity and properties change. It gets grippier and allows for fluctuations in the pressure in the gearbox.

The best thing to do before sending it to an automatic transmission specialist would be to give it an oil change

it needs 3.5 litres of Type-D transmission fluid. Do not use anything else contary to what you might hear will work. I had the same problem in mine where I could neither put my foot down or remove it from the accellerator pedal without the gearbox going into limp mode.

After the oil change the gearbox has been perfect. the oil only cost $34AUD for 5 litres. Drain all the oil and place 3.5 litres in the gear box.

There is a plug with a square hole that is the filler plug on top of the gear box.

On the bottom of the gearbox there is a filler plug and if you look closely there is a hex head behind that. To drain the gearbox you must undo the outer hex head which is the drain plug/fluid level tube.
