    Trim : SRI with added X-Pack

    Engine : 1.9 16v 150

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : Near 100K

    Default Have i been given the correct gearbox oil from vauxhall?

    I need to change my flywheel soon, so would make sence to change the gearbox oil at the same time.
    Went into vauxhall and recieved one bottle of gearbox oil ( will need to get another 2 on monday as they only had one in stock)

    The part number is 93160548
    The car is an 06 1.9 cdti with an f40 gearbox fitted.

    Could somebody please tell me if i've been given the correct oil?

    Thanks

    The f40 gearbox drain and fill plugs have the part number 11099271, which should be renewed when renewing the gearbox oil.

    Both bits of info sourced from previous posts by Jezzy (Thanks)

    You're obviously already aware, but for anyone else's info the "oil" you were originally given (93160548) is power steering fluid. Might be ok for some types of auto transmissions, but there's far more suitable stuff available for a manual gearbox.
