    Default Gearbox compatibilty for Astra Mk5 !?

    Hello

    Hope nobody objects to an Astra question on here.

    My Dad has a 54 reg 1.7 diesel Mk5 Astra which needs a replacement gearbox. I am helping him replace it and a breakers yard has sold him an F17 gearbox out of a 55 reg 1.6 petrol insisting it is the same (Mk 4 diesels are F17).

    To cut a long story short, i'm not sure the existing gearbox is an F17 and even if it does fit, surely the ratios will be different.

    Any advice will be great and you will also be of greater knowledge than my local Vauxhall dealer.

    Regards.

    According to my information, the Z17DTL has the F17+, The Z17DTH has the F23 and the petrol Z16XEP has the F17+. So first is yours the DTL or the DTH. If you look down on the top of the Box you can see which box it is, its embossed on the top. Sorry mate I have no knowledge of the astra, just looking as some specs on my lappy. Hope its of some help.
