Gearbox Change

Recommended Posts

Quick question. If I unbolt the gearbox from the engine on a 300Tdi disco, will the engine tip forward? Specifically, do I need to remove the gearbox and maybe fan in order to avoid unfortunate accidents?

Also, does anyone know the part number or spec of the bellhousing nuts? I need to replace at least a couple of them.

Erm, having said that, you need to make sure that the bolt head is 15mm or you won't be able to do it up inside the narrow gap between the reinforcing ribs at the top of the bellhousing.


Good point...not sure if I'll be able to get any this weekend anyway, but I can get most of the job done before I need them.
