Replacing 200tdi Gearbox


Recommended Posts

My 200tdi defender recently started making a whine/squeeking noise in ever gear except 4th then after about a week died completly (wont let me into gears)

Anyway i believe after a bit of googling that this is the taper roller bearing and the best bet is to replace the gearbox. I have source a gearbox for £170 and was wondering if anyone had a how to quide for replacing the gearbox? Is it a hard job? what tools i need etc..

I think the new box is from a defender but does it make any difference if its from a disco? I presume the gearing will be higher but is it a straight fit?

Thanks

Disco main gearbox (LT77) is not the same as a Defender one though. Bellhousing, input shaft and gear selector casting are all different, and (bellhousing excepted) not interchangeable. There are some internal differences as well.

ive got i the same problem my gearbox is noisy in every gear but fourth so i think its the layshaft bearings. ive had the gearbox out a few times, its not complicated but it does take a while i found lining up the gearbox onto the engine quite time consuming aswell
