We've had this mentioned on the forum before,but as yet we have no fix for it.Another member said that they had a coolant leak from the gearbox area and I basically said that it can't be coming from the gearbox,but they posted a picture of the system and the coolant does seem to go round the gearbox in some way!:eek:

I'm not sure what can be wrong,but hopefully another member can help.

watercooled gearbox

hi thanks for the reply
today i found the cause of the problem
it would appear that there is a water jacket ar4ound the diff/gearbox and they have a habit of cracking mutch like an engine cracks when frozen, it looks like the previous owner left it with no antifreeze, my local garage quated £473 for fitting new box and new clutch.
anyone know if that sounds about right:
