If it;'s like the Ford Ron, then once CSS is removed its directly behind it
These just push in
Just put the grease inside to hold that stupid spring in place

Think there was a vosa recall for V50 boxes. Slave was implicted mainly but came across a few who got a lot more done besides when the dealers took the boxes out. Might have been the six speed only?

Thats a lot

1 litre of oil would show up Ron
Nowhere for it to hide,
Not had a clutch in has it, and not topped up correctly
I get this often when doing a service,

its a bit weird i changed the oil 3-4 mths ago did some searching found it takes 1.7L i think of oil , but when i had finished i was reading some other links saying like older type boxs top up untill it drips back out again so just possible it was x amount short anyway , when i drained the old oil out it had about 1.6L . when i topped it up yesterday it took 850ml to be more spot on , so my thinking is after this long run see how much it takes to top up so i know if i can run it untill it gets a bit warmer out side or i had to freeze my nuts off , knowing my luck the nuts side :cry:
