Thumbs up

Ours is in for the g/box service this morning as we couldn't find any receipts for the fluids being done. The gearbox was shifting really smoothly however I've always been a fan of preventative maintenance. We replaced the gearbox mount earlier in the week so hopefully everything will be even smoother now.

How much is that costing you? Are you getting it done at a dealership, or another garage?

Its costing £140+VAT and we're in Berkshire. Its gone to an auto gearbox specialist in Reading - we phoned around a few places - these guys talked through oil specs etc which made the decision a whole lot easier.

Just picked her up and drive her 15miles home. Gearbox feels as smooth as butter. They flushed the oil until it was red so job seems to have been done properly. The old oil wasn’t too bad and was mid brown in colour - I can’t say how old it was but I certainly couldn’t find a receipt for the last nine years.

It will go mid brown fairly quick as it picks up contaminants (12,500 to 50,000 I don’t know) but you must feel good knowing you had it done.

Well done, it’s often overlooked!

That's very reasonable. A job well done!
