    Another quick update.

    Got the old bearing race pulled out of the end case...don't need the special tool...a slide hammer with 2 prongs had it out in 10 seconds.

    Link to slide hammer;

    The gearbox still works!!!

    Only driven it round the street so far but all gears engage...the clunk that I had going into reverse also seems to have gone as well!

    Stuck a bit extra oil in it this time as well...maybe 2.6 litres.

    Will road test it later and find out if my whine has gone but I'm very happy so far.

    Thanks, and its been a good learning curve!

    Unfortunately its not all good news though - although it doesn't clunk anymore there is a still a whine after about 10 minutes getting up to temp...so although the changing the 6th gear bearing has helped its not 100% fixed. There was definitely no pitting or severe play on the other 2 end case bearings so suspect its a bearing elsewhere/on bellhousing side

    So not really sure what do now, i certainly don't want to be spending money on a full box refurb and i kinda don't have the time to be pissing about with the thing anymore.

    I think it might be time to get rid, which is a shame considering the time i've put in and all the good stuff on it.

    Had a failed attempt at trying to get shot via WBAC.

    Ideally i'd like to take the box out completely and pull it apart myself but the other half is getting irate about the amount of time i'm spending on both Corsas.

    Plan B is now to get a used box, have that refurbed then swap them out and do the clutch/release bearing (which is whining) at the same time.

    Feels like i'm admitting defeat getting someone else to refurb the box tho!
