Renault Trafic Gearbox

Also known as Vauxhall Vivaro and Nissan Primastar

(5 speed & 6 speed) 2001-2010 PK5/PK6 PF5/PF6

The current Renault Trafic resulted from a joint venture between German Opel, Japanese Nissan and French Renault. It is also sold as an Opel Vivaro, Vauxhall Vivaro and by Nissan as the Primastar.

Designed by Renault’s corporate design department based within the company’s Technocentre outside Paris, the Trafic was developed by the engineering team of Renault’s light commercial vehicle unit at Villiers-Saint-Fréderic. Manufactured by GM Manufacturing Luton at its plant in Luton—beside Primastar and the Vivaro—the Trafic was the first Renault vehicle to be built in the United Kingdom in more than 30 years.

In an agreement between Renault and Nissan, versions of the van are also manufactured at Nissan’s plant in Barcelona, Spain.The van exists in several versions, from a 3-seater with all the rear space available for loads, to a 9-seater. Its name is based on the French word for “trade” or “traffic” (depending on the context).

The van was designed by Renault in Paris, and both Renault and Opel versions are manufactured by Vauxhall at their plant in Luton. In 2012, UK production of the Vivaro totalled 36,982 and 16,483 for the Renault Trafic.

A mild facelift in 2006 saw the orange indicators swapped for clear ones more integrated into the headlamp housings. On the Vauxhall and Opel models, the indicators moved from the front bumpers, up into the headlamp housings, thus looking more similar to the Renault.

The weak point on these Renault Trafic gearboxes is the shaft bearing which tend to disintegrate early symptoms are a low whining sound. If the van is driven beyond this point the the bearing breaks up and drops the ball bearings into the gearbox causing it to jam the gear teeth and break them.
