Hi Shantal

Thanks for getting back to me. There is not much more information I can give, other than the gearbox seems perfectly normal in every gear including reverse etc. Just third gear suddenly lost drive half way through a journey. There were no unusual noises, no gear whine etc. I only noticed it when I changed up to third and the revs went up and then realised that third gear was not driving.

If you need any other info please email me.

I look forward to an answer asap.

Many thanks

Dear Chantal

I have been waiting for an answer to my question since 18th DEC last year, still nothing! As I have already had a new gear box installed, my question is now irrelevant. I'm rather dissapointed with your service and feel it would only be right to ask for my money back.
