Hi Dave thanks
Ok your vehicle is fitted with the MMT6 (6speed gearbox )
This is also fitted to Mondeo /galaxy and kuga on the 1.8/2.0/2.2tdci Variants
Don't worry about the gearbox code as the MMT6 gearboxes are the same in each Varient
the gearbox you require is the MMT 6 gearbox

I already have that info m8 but after speaking to ford uk they said the gearbox code refers to the ratios and clutch variants and the clutch was only replaced 5000 miles ago so I wanted to swap for one which is compatible. Thanks Dave.

Hi Dave Ok ok the gear ratio changes are minor in regard to the 1.8-2.0tdci If you get a MMT 6 gearbox from either a Mondeo /smax or Galaxy fitted with the 1.8 tdci the gear ratio will be identical As the MMT 6 box is used across this range In each case when I have stripped one of these they are identical Kind Regards ***** ***** Brian

Ok m8, he also said that the MMT6 only refers to the actual gearbox and that the code also refers to the bell housing shape and the position of the starter motor etc. I don't know a lot about the gearbox and have been receiving lots of conflicting info from mechanics, some saying any will fit and others saying that it has to be exact, hence the query. Thanks again Dave
