    Default Are all 1.8 Gearboxes the same?

    As per title, I've got a 1.8LS 2004 Vec and need a new gearbox asap. I've sourced one thats from a 2008 1.8 (assuming vvt).

    Are these the same gearbox?

    Thanks in advance!

    IIRC the gear box from the 1.8 16v(non vvt) is an F17 if that helps.

    yeah mine was WR and changed for a CR straight swap no probs , much sharper in 3rd , 4th an 5th gear , if you can source a good CR I'd recommend it

    All I can add to this thread is to not ever use 24/7 spares.

    Put me in touch with some thieving b*****ds who've taken my money, sent me a piece of crap gearbox and now refuse to refund me my money.

    I'm having to go the ol' fashioned "trading standards" route but something tells me I'm not going to get the £300 labour back despite my car being less mobile than when it went into the garage...

    So off to source another gearbox... who thinks I should look for a close ratio off an SRi instead? lol
