    Angry 1.8 SRi VVTi 06 Petrol gearbox update

    Well finally got an answer from my mechanic, my gearbox has a cracked casing??? VX won't contribute as car out of 12months netQ sales warranty and Manufac. warranty exp 2009. Surely if the casing cracked this shows a weakness in the box itself and not the workings of the gearbox which would otherwise be classed as fair wear n tear? The cracked casing obviously a major part which has caused the inner workings to fail due to loss of GB oil.

    Anyone else had these issues as I think this is a job for Watchhound?

    The problem is that the onus is on you to prove that the casing hasn't taken a whack from something externally, possibly from something you could have driven over.

    Yeah was diagnosed as diff causing bearing to shoot through casing, now repaired and new clutch kit fitted, so hopefully this time I'll get more than 12 mths from it. Will be keeping a close eye on the old GB oil.
