chrisstevenson Posted September 26, 2006 Share Posted September 26, 2006 Hi, Just picked up a P38 auto, diesel, very nice, but like an idiot when test driving it I selected the low ratio box and then went to put it in reverse whilst the warning beep was being emitted, as soon as I heard the resulting crunch I put it back in neutral. Now my qustion is this... am I likely to have done any serious damage to the box? Having now read the owners manual it does warn that you could 'crunch the gears' on a manual if you force it into gear before the car is ready for low ratio mode, so I guess a little crunching of gears is expected on the rare occasion? Hate to think I've just knocked 50,000 miles off the box already! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
