  • Gearbox oil change

    Do i need to tell VX to put 2.2l in , as there is still 0.3l left in the box.

    What is everyone using ,as i might supply it myself.

    £75 inc VAT seem a bit steep , seen as the car is in for a service and MOT, and already going to be on the ramp.

    Gearbox oil change should be a sticky , with the cars getting a bit old now.

    as long as they put a minimum of two litres back into the gearbox it should be okay

    Having the gearbox oil changed on the J vxr should be part of the engine service schedule

        id supply your own , no reason it can be done while the oil is draining out of the engine but if you go main dealer you can expect to be fleeced

              Guys, 2 days ago I replaced gearbox oil in my Astra and .... only 1.7 litre came out so I was happy to pour in the whole 2.4 litre. It was easy but my smile was taken out the next morning. A little bit of oil spilled on the floor, bottom of the trans is soaked up, under chassis brace is also covered in oil....
              I inspected the sides and top of the gearbox but all clean.
              My only suspicion is the new oil drain plug, it has the washer while the original one didnt. My question is, is F40 (manual) supposed to have a washer? I also tightened the plug using torque wrench set to 50 Nm.
