    Default NIGHTMARE - Popping out of 5th gear

    Afternoon all,

    I have discovered a right royal PITA of a problem with my 2.2Dti...

    I can no longer use 5th gear, started yesterday when I was about half way from Liverpool to Durham and the car just kept jumping out of 5th gear on the motorway. It only really happened at first when I would put my foot down but it did get worse by the time I got to durham and I was having to hold it in gear.

    Well on my drive back this morning it as worse again, even trying to hold it in 5th it would slip back every now and again and grind, so I gave up, not wanting to damage anytihing else lol.

    So I have just made a 160 mile motorway journey in 4th gear lol

    Just wondering is there anything I can do with the gearbox or is it a scrapyard job?

    Cheers boys and girls any advice would be much appreciated.

    Matt

    Also, doe anyone know anything about fitting the saab 6 speed box on this engine? I remember it being said it was possible a while ago...

    Does anything else need changing? eg the driveshafts?

    Is it the gearbox of the 2.2dti saab 9-3? I'm assuming the 2001-03 saabs?

    Cheers

    Matt

    Cheers Critch thanks for the reply,

    To be honest thats what I was expecting to hear lol, already on ebay looking for a replacement box but I fancy a 6 speed if its possible...

    Always thought that it needed an extra gear and ow I have a perfect excuse lol.

    Cheers Paul, Do you know if the driveshafts need changing or is it a straight swap box for box?
