    Default Gearbox leak?

    Hi,

    I've just been having a look under the hood of the beast, and come across something that looks like the gearbox may be leaking. Or may it be some sort of sealant?

    Have a look for yourselves.....

    Hmm.. seems like excess internal pressure.. i'd get the breather vent checked out..

    no-one has been 'topping it up' have they and over filled it??

    Not too serious a problem either way..just unpleasant to look at..

    Nope - not that I know of! Its only done 15000miles, so I wouldn't of thought so.

    How do I check the breather vent?

    drop it into vauxhalls and ask them to look at it..it'll only cause you problems if they find you've been fiddling with the box.. it's an easy getout for them then....

    basically all they need to do is check that any built up internal pressure can be releived through the breather
