  3. Hi David, If you can, you are better off replacing, as it will fail somewhere else on the box. Cheers Rod
  4. Hi Stephen, I was brought up in Hull and I remember Earles cement and Earles ship builders. I think Earles had a ship yard in Selby, to the west of Hull. No Idea if they are related or anything to do with either of these companies, but I will keep lookling. There was also a Johm Earle, surveyor who worked for a local contractor. Cheers Rod

  9. Hi Dave, If you have a look on the club forums I`m sure there is something on there. Mine is a 2.2 diesel 2009. I had mine done at garage. I think it depends on the make of gearbox. Some are sealed for life. Cheers Rod

I dont know how much everything cost as the g
