I did this at the weekend.... 84k and no evidence its ever been done... WOW what a difference gear change feels smooth deacceleration noise has been dramatically reduced.
how noisy was your box on decel? mine sounds terrible unless ive really thrashed it to warm the oil up!
Im off on holiday next week but when I return I plan on giving the whole car a major service, its not due but as im at 71k and only have what the service book tells me I think its not a bad idea.
Can I ask what oil people recommend for gearbox? also engine?
OP... superb writeup, many thanks! I was going to get Mr T to do this but after this writeup ill do it myself! CHEERS!
