In order to rest and replenish my S3 I thought I'd buy a daily so I can have it off the road for engine mods and a respray....good plan in general. Problem is I got 3/4 of the way home in my shiny ( not ) 1.4 ibiza and the gearbox ate itself and started spewing oil everwhere from the box, covering the wifes windscreen as she was following me home! I have now discovered that this is relatively common, instead of crying about it I thought I'd take the opportunity to learn a bit more and try and change the box myself.
My question to you very knowledgable chaps is when changing a gearbox is there anything else that needs to be changed? I'll be doing clutch, flywheel and bearings....Anything else to add?
So far this money saving, common sense idea hasn't quite worked out lol, bleeding cars!
