    Default Gearbox trouble....

    Popped over to my local garage AutoMagic (For those in or around the boro they're on Skippers Lane,top little place it is too!)today as the lads were popping her onto the riser to get underneath the bumper to finally fit my Chrome Fog surrounds that i've had sitting in the garage for months....as i don't do taking off bumpers
    Well it was just as well she went up, because my gearbox was covered in oil ON THE OUTSIDE
    So got the chromes on and straight up the stealers,for a warranty job.
    Thankfully i've caught it in time,the level inside is okay and it's a seep more than a leak,but has spread a fair bit

    So she'll have to go in for a week now while a new seal is fitted,must say i'm dissapointed for a car thats about 18months old,but the stealers claim they've had a lot in for the same problem.

    Thought i should post this up,just incase the rest of you get a chance to check underneath the car,as lets face it most of us see that part of the motor less than the back of our own heads!!!!

    just a bit of bad luck then mate.. the VX box doesn't really cause any problems..Makes me wonder if the car has stood for a while and the seal has dried out..
