    theres a bloke near me has a business just mending gearboxes, most towns have a guy like that who can rebuild a box not as pricey as you might think

    Feel your pain tenchy, mine is off the road all day tomorrow. I pranged the sump and I need a new one, mechanic says the glue/gasket needs 24 hours to seal. I thought about using my trolley and barrels but thought nah I'll have a day off.

    Not as simple as 'it's a Vivaro hence it's cr@p' Stevie. I do wish you'd stop the carte blanche slating of them as we both know that the engine size has a lot to do with it.

    Not to insult your mechanic tench0771 but it's not something as straight forward as the linkage is it? This is the most common gear box fault and can be sorted with a £10 part off eBay and 2 screws and 10 mins simple DIY.

    If you need a VID to assess it let me know I'll pop one on YouTube later tonight.

    In my professional opinion mate they are ****
    But look good and drive well
    But it is common knowledge these vans can suffer a lot of problems
