Re: check gearbox


is the engine missfiring. If so it sounds like one or more of the pencil coils has failed. If that is the case simply replace the failed coils . The reason for the check gearbox message is because the onboard computer is just throwing up various fault codes. Replacing the faulty coils will solve this. If I am wrong and thats not the case is the check gearbox message on all the time and when it does come on do you get a harsh jolt from the gearbox?

Currently in Haree's garage:
I don't have a garage just a driveway. The Modus 1.6 16v VVT Dynamique Auto is my Grandparents car which I also drive.
