    Question Vectra C 1.9 cdti SRI (150)

    Couple of days ago I posted about my mate was looking to get a MK5 ASTRA 1.9 CDTI sri (150) and we had found one but turns out the gearbox is on the way out. I know there prone to goin but what about the Vectra's gearbox. Somebody told me they use an F40 gearbox instead of an M32 that the astra uses. Do the F40 boxes last longer, are they stronger? Any info would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance, matt.

    F40 is the 6 speed.

    Is the Astra a 6 speed?
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    They're both 6 speed Lee, but the Astra H uses the M32 box and the Vectra uses the F40 box.

    wernie, yes they're stronger, the numbers usually relate to the maximum torque the box can safely take, M32 being 320Nm and F40 being 400Nm.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Hi gazTD, cheers for info, we've just been and had a look at a Vectra, Nice car but the DMF needed replacing but wouldn't admit it and he would not budge on the price. Once again, thanks for the info fella.
