    Blown Gearbox which one is it? and which cars have it?

    2001 mk4 1.8 Sxi

    Which gearbox is it? is it the 'F17 CR' ?

    What cars are these fitted to??
    Astra g 1.6, 1.8, vectra? etc

    i've had a scrap yard price if £150 +vat for a 1.6 16v box
    and prices from 350 to 650 for a recon fitted.

    2nd gear went last night, loads of noise and rattling from the box, 2nd gear does nothing but the rest work!

    anyone know of anywhere, North wales or Hull area
    Astra '01 1.8 SXI - 19's, Koni's, Irmscher everything! *SOLD*
    BMW '04 325 Sport

    It will be an F17 in your car.. but I'm not sure which other cars come with them...

    There was someone selling one on here recently (from Yorkshire)

    I paid £80 for my gearbox, from a local breakers & fitted it myself.

    The F17 box fitted to 1.8 smallblock X18XE1 + Z18XE Astra Mk4 had the same ratios and final drive, whichever trim level was used - 3.73/2.14/1.41/1.12/0.89 & 3.74.

    The F18 is usually fitted to BIGBLOCK X18XE (totally different engine) used in Astra Mk3 and Vectra although recent Vectras are probably X18XE1/Z18XE in which case they'll use the F17.
    Maintains:- Vectra Design 1.9CDTi
    Drives :- Hyundai Santa Fe
