    Gearbox/Driveshaft O ring seal?

    Afternoon all

    Just been reading the old haynes manual about this gearbox change, says it's recommended to change the shaft entry point O rings. The old ones on my old gearbox are non existant, but the new ones on the box look really healthy, almost new.

    Should I change them? If so does anyone have the part no for them? also the part no for the sealing ring for the clutch hydraulic pipe.

    Many thanks

    I would not bother tbh

    When I had the red top in my old astra I never changed them. Had them in and out a few times when test fitting, cleaning etc. and had no problems. Hope that helps.

    Does anyone know the part no for the sealing ring on the hydraulic clutch pipe? the pipe that goes to the top of the gearbox

    This MUST be replaced

    why not ring Vx and find out or go down there(maybe hard without a car) and he can bring up a diagram on the screen and just show him what your looking for.

    Also regards to the other deal that your not replacing, if its only a few quid why not just replace it for peace of mind?
