    Question Mk4 astra 1.6 gearbox into a mk4 1.8?

    Does anyone know the differnece between the 2?

    my problem is that my mk4 astra 1.8 sxi's gearbox is on its way out (pop's out of gear, whines in 1st 2nd and 3rd and 4th it just jumps around violently, and it wont engage 5th)

    my step dad is a mechanic and can get a 1.6 gearbox cheap but wasnt sure if it'd fit in?

    can anyone shed any light ?

    thanks to all in advance

    Z18XE and Z16's use the F17, so 'should' be ok
