    Default Gearbox or Clutch knackard?

    Okay, just heading out to work there, got out of the street and about 300 yards up the main road when the car felt like it popped out of gear. I try dropping a gear (from 4th to 3rd) but it did nothing, was just like the car was in Neutral. eventually rolled to a stop at the side of the road and although it feels like its going into gear (the reverse lights come on etc), it's still like the cars in neautral.

    Any ideas what the problem is? The cars a 2004 2.0 DTi Vectra with 75K on the clock.

    Cheers Guys.

    Jay

    It could be that the linkages have come adrift from the gearbox.Does the clutch feel the same?

    Yeah, it feels like it's going into gear, had a look under the bonnet and the linkages seem okay, they move as you would expect when I run thru the gears. Have now noticed that the gearbox is making a grinding noise when I pu it in gear so def sounds like the box is away.

    Now I need to find out if the box can be repaired or if it needs a new one.

    Anyone got any idea what gearbox is in the 2.0 DTi?

    Cheers.

    2.2 DTI has F35 gearbox I think.Not too sure about 2.0,but probably it's the same.

    That's an F23 which is not capable of handling the torque from even the 2.0 DTi.Come to think of it,the F35 doesn't seem to be able to do it either! LOL

    Think your right there! My mate has a 2.0 DTi too and he's on his 3rd gearbox! Mind you, the car has nearly 200K on the clock.

    Anyhoo, just to update, I got a friend to tow me [using his 1.9 CDTi Signum - fantastic car!] to a gearbox specialist. He put it on the ramps straight away and said the clutch and gearbox are okay but the driveshaft has popped out of the gearbox. He's gonna strip it down and double check everything else is okay then build it back up again. Hopefully a cheaper fix than originally thought!
