Gearbox refurb


Recommended Posts

Hi all

Anyone on here refurbish lupo gearboxes?

Mines started to jump out of 2nd occasionally, it's not that often but I need the car to be as reliable as possible.

Current gearbox code is FFV (1.7 SDI)

Thanks :)

I know a chap here in Reading who charges £50. You need to supply it drained and with the £100 rebuild kit. There's also someone in Cardiff area I think. @Rich might know someone closer to you...

That's an absolute bargain. I'd consider doing that with a high mileage working box just as preventative!!!

That's exactly what I did with my black SDI. When stripped there was nothing wrong with it except the reverse gear had been slightly abused. Cleaned magnet.  All like new again. i even flushed it before refilling with decent oil!

Basically guaranteed to last the lifetime of the car now!!

Thanks guys, sorry I don't get notifications of replies, didn't realise you all commented :)

I'm going to change the oil with genuine VW stuff and see if it improves.. tbh it maybe because my pedal box needs doing, might not be pushing the clutch enough.

 

thanks

Stationary for a couple of mins, with the front wheels off the ground in gear to clean the diff too. Then dump the contents while still spinning, keeping all the bits in suspension (in oil). Gets all the metal bits out. See definitive gearbox thread... :)
