    Default HELP! Whos clued up on gearboxes?

    Basicly my car (2005 sri 1.8XE non vvti petrol ) needs either a gearbox repair or a new gearbox.

    My question is which gearbox box code is mine? Also i have found a chap whos breaking a 57 plate 1.8sri petrol with 30000 miles but im a bit worried the box might be different because the 57 plate will be a vvti model? Will it be a different gearbox code?

    Thanks for any help with sorting my dilema

    There are loads of gearboxes on ebay if you look under F17 but some are for the vec B and some for astras, zafiras etc....Is an F17 just that and one type only or are there different versions? Its all very confusing!!!
    Can anyone clear this up for me?

    Decided to find a gearbox specialist localy.I am taking it wednesday morning.They say they are going to remove the "gearset" and repair second gear, no need for removal of gearbox apparently.Still an expensive operation though! Will let you all know if i have much success come friday!

    No its a place in Bury, its more conveniant for me for work, dropped it off this morning (they open at 6am)! Hopefully (touches wood) should be picking it up tomorrow after work leaving me considerably lighter in the pocket!

    Thanks for the tip off though, they were helpfull and about the same price as the place in Bury, but Preston is a bit awkward for me.
