So the FUX (Ironic) gearbox didnít want to play!
« on: April 03, 2018, 07:47:49 PM »
If anyoneís had the problems (and I know thereís been plenty!)
I had my box rebuilt on Saturday for a totally reasonable cost of £270, replacing the bearings and main shaft, plus shims!

Not a bad price, and he hated the car with a passion!

Iíve never had the boxes apart or anything, but apparently itís a pain to get the bearings out, especially the main shaft bearing?

But if anyoneís have trouble with clutch creep, seems like itís losing clutch pressure, not selecting gears or itís not even coming out of first, second or reverse, this may be a viable option!
Shimming the end shaft wasnít an option as it didnít cure the problem;
Changed bearings, main shaft & added shims, sorted!

I was dreading the its FUXíed phonecall, but all good!
Thought Iíd give it a few days run in before writing about it.


Cheers chaps!

A mechanic in Durham;

Do you need some work doing like Mike?

Not at the moment - I would usually do it myself but that's a pretty good price for such a full overhaul.  The retail price of the parts couldn't have been much less!
