    How tooled up are you?

    If you're going to spend around £30 on gearbox oil and have the hassle of draining etc beleive it or not its actually not that much more work (although extremely daunting) to pull the end case off the box and check the state of the bearings.

    Theres one thats usually the most common to go and it can be swapped out in situ with some good bearing pullers and other tools.

    So really beyond oil, all you need is that bearing, circlip and the sealant to put the end case back on which you'd get for maybe another 25 quid on top of the oil (and tools).

    I have done this...it didn't fix my particular issue...but if i had another m32 that was showing stick movement i'd certainly try it as it could prolong the life of the box a fair bit for not much money. Plenty people have done it on other forums and the information is there if you are feeling brave.
