Resolved Question:

2002 Renault Scenic 1.6 manual.
Slips out of second gear and sometimes first during acceleration or throttle movement.
Sounds as though gearbox moves during hard acceleration or deceleration.
I believe it would just be engine/gearbox mounts.
Rear gearbox mount has been replaced but issue persisted.
Any advice or confirmation that this could be the issue?
Best course of action for me would be helpful too?

I'd agree that a worn of soft engine or gearbox mount can allow enough movement to pull on the gear lever cables and so move things out of gear

So check the tightness of the engine and gearbox mounts and their condition - this is best done by using a jack to take the weight of the engine off the mounts and seeing if any cracks or splits open up in the rubber.Also check the tightness of the mounts bolts
