  • Car gone in for gearbox diagnosis

    Well I finally got round to getting her booked in. The car was making a rough bearing noise in 5th and 6th under light load, and also in 2nd whilst coasting. Also the gearstick moved backwards in 1st and 5th upon acceleration/taking up drive.
    It became apparent something was wrong when it started to whine in 1st and second when accelerating. So I took it in and its being diagnosed tomorrow.

    I was told I had to pay if it turns out to be my fault - i.e stone damage cracked the casing and lost oil, however I know this isn't the case so should be fine.

    How long does it usually take between end of diagnosis, and the completion of the job? I understand they need to order a gearbox etc.

    Cheers for any info, just hope it comes away fine!

    The M32 Boxes are shi**mate mine went over a yr ago on my Vixer,i heard a whining in 5th,6th and felt the grinding through the gearstick,it wouldve cost me nearly 2 grand for a new box as mine had come out of warranty,worst luck but i couldnt find a box ANYWHERE as these boxes are prone for being crap,i eventually got my whole drivetrain reconditioned and this was whilst my car was up in the air at MPG Middlewich,needless to say im a bit easier on her now hee hee

        Yeah I agree mate can't believe how many threads ive seen on here and the astra diesel owners, I wouldn't mind but ive never ever ragged my car. Ive opened it up but I know the difference between spirited driving and lack of regard for mechanical sympathy. I have a mate who drives like a *** and his cars never break lol, sods law I guess!

              i did see a car a few day old that turned into a 5 speed
              it was low on gearbox oil an it just killed 6th
              you could start the car in 6th no probs at all

              they replaced the gearbox no probs at all
              the truth is out there
              part GSI part VXR

                            yes sounds like it. is it in only certain gears?? and get louder higher the revs?
                            unless it warrenty proven ok exhaust cant remember which one remus prob. you will need to return it back to standard.
