    gearbox oil change? When?

    how many miles till you need to do a gearbox oil change..

    nothing seems wrong with it just iv bin doin a full service on the car this week and changin part that could do with bin replaced.

    iv had a read through the how too on changin the gearbox oil im guessin you need to take the reverse light switch out but how do you get that out.. twist and pull?

    its also a 1.6 16v engine SXI what type of gear box is it likely to be the F17?

    technically speaking its a non serviceable item and according to Vxl it does not need changing!

    Therefore if u wanna change it - just change it.

    Is there any reason to change it? I am not running into any real problems with gears but i plan to keep this car for as long as possible, is it really worth doing?

    may as well if ur confident

    when i had the old 8v in mine i changed to some fully synth fluid and that made quite a difference as opposed to 10yr old original stuff...

    my current stuff has been in less than a year due to the zlet thats in now but i may be changing it again to some royal purple synchromax (a brand which i use for oil n stuff lol)

    theres a few brands to choose from so just take ur pick!

    Cheers, will speak to my mate and see if hes up for giving me a hand (him doing everything and me watching ) need to get a few more things done anyway so will try and get up and spend a full day on the car. Got to do 308 brake upgrade, fit rarb and fix exhaust.
