R380 gearbox - bearing replacement possible at home ?


Recommended Posts

The gearbox in my 2001 Td5 with just 220K on the clock has become noisy - when I go into 5th gear there is a definite sound of a rough bearing (most of the time ) .

Gear selection etc is fine - no problems at all there.

I see Ashcroft sell a set of bearings for the R380 and I was wondering if changing them on a DIY basis is possible?

Has anyone experience of this - or is there a possibility of there being shaft wear or other problems also ?

Any ideas or opinions greatly appreciated .
