    Exclamation Help needed for gearbox history!!!

    As you all know i have had some problems with my vauxhall. What I need to Know is if anyone can help me, especially if you have cars with the 6 speed gearbox (2.0T and i think the GSi). Has anyone experienced similar problems with their gearboxes. If so get in touch or post these problems on this thread. It would be much appreciated. I am trying to ascertain whether there is a common problem/fault with this gearbox.

    Once again thanks.
    Rob

    A common problem with the F40 gearbox .... if you do a search you will find that a bunch had gotten new ones.

    My gearbox was replaced by the main dealers before I picked the car up when I bought it. 8100miles. They said that they had found a crack in case on gearbox, had to wait for 4 weeks for car as new gearbox fitted is a modified version of the F40 WR2.
