    Default Gearbox Conversion

    Hi these 2.2 DTi auto gearboxes are like rocking horse phoo second hand!
    So I'm now considering a conversion to a manual.
    Has anybody done a conversion?
    What are my choices of gearbox?

    I've started a list of parts;
    Gearbox (which one to be decided)
    Pedalbox
    Clutch/flywheel assembly
    Driveshafts (not sure if I'll need to swap these until I decide which gearbox)
    Selector mechanism.

    Any more thoughts?

    loads a tech 2 programing ....new drive shafts new gearbox mounts .... interior trim around gear nob.....pedal box is easy to change ..you will need the clutch pipes tho that go across the bulk head....this is a lot of work ..... you may need a new cim as the old one will have the park lock option for the key so this will need removeing ..... keep us posted on how you get on ...oh you will need a new instrument pannel......maybe you need the complete donner car,....

    One breaker reconded the drive shafts were the same but I'm open minded about that. I figured the automatic gearbox would nee to be removed from the vehicles sortware but I didn't know to what extent this would be.

    I had not considered the gearbox mountings tho so thanks!
