Our Renault box has this, but after 2300 miles?! I don't think it was 
done at the factory. It's a known problem in the Renault and Lotus camps

Oh it got the full tratment. New nut, torqued up properly, bent over the 
flange bit, and loctite to make triply sure.This was -my- car.

I don't do our customers gearboxes, they go off to a local specialist 
who's very good, and of course guarantees his work...
