    Unhappy Hi, just worked out how to introduce myself

    Hello everyone just worked out how to intro myself, have a vec c 2003 2.0dti. Its a taxi, and I dont envy anyone using the vec as a taxi.

    1. Latest problem is the clutch plate having the splines ripped off. Suppose its better than the gearbox splines being damaged
    2. Cause of the damage to the clutch, is unknown. I am a mechanic myself, but mostly ask for 2nd opinion. My mate works at a peugot dealers, he couldnt find anything that would cause damage either.
    3. So Ive replaced the clutch. Big job as the subframe has to be dropped at one side so the gearbox has clearance under the wheel arch
    4 Alls well! Until I turn the engine on
    5. Gearbox has to come back out, as something is very very wrong, the distinct smell of burning clutch
    Turns out that silly me put the clutch plate in back to front, even though at this point whilst replacing the clutch I was ver very aware about the clutch going in the right way
    6. Anyway we all make mistakes even when it says on the clutch plate "Gearbox side". So it went back together again, and today I put everything back together and started the ****** car only to now find that I cant get gears. Tomorrow the gearbox has to be removed AGAIN!
    7. Think Im just getting SICK now.
    8. Onward and upward then! At least it isnt going to cost me anything this time! I dont think so anyway, so far so good
    9. I will be by the end of this, be able to strip a vec gearbox and engine out of the car with my eyes shut.
    10. Well! I think Im goin to bed now. Long day tomorrow


    later guys

    Just wish me luck. Need it
