    Thumbs up Gearbox repair - 3 years on...

    Thought i should post a gearbox update... on the dreaded 6th gear issue.

    About 3 1/2 years ago I got the dreaded whine and play in first and 6th gear on the M32 gearbox. I asked for advice and ultimately had it fixed 3 years ago. (Original post:

    Anyway, 3 years on I thought I should post an update to give anyone else with issues some confidence - I've not had any sign of problems since.

    The guys at ASK Transmissions in Falkirk did the work. They were a little slower than I'd like as they were busy (which annoyed me at the time), but the workmanship seems to have held up well so 3 years on I'll absolutely forgive them for the extra few days it took.

    I think the key was I got it relatively early so minimal damage to the box itself. So if you have the whine noise or any play in the gears, go get it sorted!

    Good to know. Mines had a refurb too and over a year on no signs of issues but time for a gear oil change soon though

    I beginning to wonder if you do actually own a Vxr. I reckon what you actually have is an Astra life automatic
