    Default Astra vxr m32 gearbox problems

    Looking for some help here, car developed a whine off throttle under 2000rpm in 5th and 6th so I bought the 62mm case and bearings and took it to the garage for replacing i also said to change the rest of the bearings while there fitting the updated case, anyhow the garage has had the car 3 weeks now they say they changed all the bearings etc and took the car on a test run and it's still got noise in 5th and 6th as before, so they recommend change 5 and 6 gear sets and still the noise, there now saying maybe it's the pinion shaft and crown wheel, any 1 have the same experience as me here

    Update to this they said they got a diffrent gearbox as they didn't no where whine was coming from and now when I go from 3rd to 4th it's a big jump in ratios, it's like going from 3rd to 5th, doesn't stop there though 4th and 5th seams exactly the same gears any 1 no what these cowboys have done they want shutting down
