    Default Got a call today!

    My gearbox is out, and the flywheel is totally shot and the clutch has high spots.

    Thats just 2200 miles after they were replaced. The fault with the input shaft on the replacement gearbox which was fitted in February,has knackered them.

    But, as always, Vauxhall has looked at the issues and said to replace both the gearbox with a new gearbox, not replacement, new DM flywheel and new clutch due to sub-sequential damage.

    The Flywheel arrives tomorrow, so I'll pick the car up on Thursday morning all being well.

    I can't fault Vauxhall and my dealer have been fantastic again. At least everything will be new and the fault should be gone!

    The interesting thing, is that the DMF has gone on back order with Vauxhall. fortunatly Marshall's Peterborough dealership has a DMF which will arrive tomorrow for mine.
