    Default Gearbox failure: guidance on warranty claims needed

    Hi folks,

    New to the forum. Picked up an Arctic edition a few months back, 1 previous owner.

    Has anyone had a gearbox refurb'd or replaced on warranty and were you able to get the warranty on the box alone extended back to 3 years? I want to make sure the workmanship is guaranteed, as mine was refurb'd by Alpine Transmissions. I just expected it would be replaced.

    Cheers.

    surely the VX Dealership has or will explain all this to you, if not I suggest you call VX Customer Services.

    If the gearbox was refurb'd by Alpine Transmissions, then I would say your warranty on the gearbox has been voided as a third party has done work on it.

    Hmmm has VX sent the box off to a third party before or you did that yourself?

    They sent it to get refurb'd so it won't be void. Threw in the name of the company in case anyone had dealings with them. So far they haven't been very forthcoming with information, but i am chasing it up. The reason i asked rather than waitin to hear from vx was coz it seems like there are lots of different opinions on the warranty. If someone has been in the same situation, they might be able to advise on how it turned out for them. Hopefully it will be fine.
    Cheers

    I had my box done by alpine transmissions last year Allan has done loads of m32's .

    If it was warranty work by vaux but only carried out by a 3rd party then I would say your warranty is still with the dealer
