    1.9 Gearbox probs

    Hi guys I hope you are all well.

    I have a 1.9 Cdti with the 6 speed gearbox.

    Last week the gearbox decided to blow up and need replacing after 80k miles.

    My company are saying it's my fault as I have been driving it in a bad way.

    I was wondering are there any known problems or examples of similar experiences just so I can fight my corner a little more?

    Many thanks for any help you can give

    They replaced the clutch and flywheel at the same time as the gearbox.
    Apparently it cost around £3k to sort out. OUCH!!!!

    Is this a common problem then?
