    Default F40 gearbox oil.

    Afternoon all,
    Ive been asked to change a clutch on 04 plate vectra cdti 120, im happy with the mechanical part of it but can anyone tell me the required grade of oil and the amount to refill an F40 gearbox? are theyre any alternatives to vauxhalls own as the nearest dealer is 25miles away, but our local factor carries semi-synthetic 75-90w.

    Ive read a couple of different amounts regarding refilling the box.

    My apologies if its on here somewhere and also if this is in the wrong section.

    Many thanks

    Joe

    Someone's borrowed my Haynes but both your questions are covered in it, ie. type and quantity.

    It states that vauxhall oil should be used,and it takes 3.2ltr but someone else has told me that it takes 1.9ltr but i suspect that amount is for the different box,i'll get 3.2 ltr, anyone know how much a rough price is for the vauxhall oil per ltr?

    Many thanks
