Jason2 Posted August 8, 2007 Share Posted August 8, 2007 Hi Guys PLEASE can some one "in the know" put me out of my misery and tell me that my 300tdi R380 gearbox is knacked. Got back from a 2k trip to Spain last week no problems (except gear stick was a little stiffer than usual on arrival). Set off on a 200 mile trip yesterday and gear change got progressively worse: Difficulty from 1st-2nd with out crunching. Difficulty from 3rd to 4th. Comes down the box O.K except no way of getting into 2nd, no abnormal noises except for in 1st & 2nd when you let off the power the gearbox let's off an almighty coggy scream!!! Managed to get us home, dropped the gearbox oil on arrival (that I changed 7k ago and was fine) and it's now got a lovely bronze syncro shimmer to it with a few small bits of cog!! So if somebod could just comfirm that it's duffed, it would be much appreciated before I get my matches out Cheers in advance Jason Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
