    Default gearbox plugs

    just wandering if someone could help, i have put my car in the garage for an oil change and the filterhousing has broken so i have had to leave the car there, while its in i asked them to change the gearbox oil and to only put 2.4 liters in as its crunchy between first and second. i did see a thread that had screen shots of TIS and the field remedy about this but cant find it anymore, could someone point me in the right direction.
    also i rang them yesterday to ask them to fit new filler and drain plugs in the gearbox and he said "well we wouldnt normall do, the old ones will be fine" i asked them to replace them anyway with genuine VX ones and their replay was "well ok beut they will probly be exspensive"
    so please could someone post up the price's and/or part numbers so i can check and make sure their not ripping me off.
    its not my local garage as i was at my mums in preston at the time. so their 200 miles away and i dont really trust them after breaking the oil filter housing.
    cheers as always

    Part number: 11099271, £2.32+VAT each. Tell the garage you know they're talking BS about being able to reuse the old drain plug, as it states in TIS that the original one mustn't be reused as it doesn't have a washer.

    BTW - this is all assuming that you have the F40 transmission.
