A bearing has gone in the gearbox. apparently very rare and could be very expensive!! New gearboxes are 6k recon at about 2-2,500. Lets hope they can repair/replace the parts that have broken. I am now considering ending my affair with Porsche and moving to the new Jag XK!!

I just got back from my pre warranty inspection too. He said I have an oil leak on the cam cover so I have booked in to gave that done.(500). However, he never noticed my axle whine or my broken electric mirrors. So thats a bonus. Going in week after next for the seal though. Let us know how you do get on Tom.
new Jag is lovely looking but its a bit of cruiser don't you think?

Good Luck Smile

I have just spoken with them and the car is on its way to repair. I am however shocked by the price!!



16 hours at 65 is good.

spare parts at 1,100 is a bit over the top! apparently the problem is the bearings in the pinion have gone and a synchro has also gone and needs to be replaced. Surely this is a lot for the parts? Any help would be appreciated as the total bill is coming to 2,500!
