gearbox probs heeeelp
just fitted a clutch to my brotherinlaws 8vgte and the shaft was solid to get out got it out in the end then put the new clutch in the shaft was a b*stard to get back in and now we cannot get neutral or any gears properly
can anybody help please
If it will go into gear or neutral with the engine off then the clutch plate is either the wrong way round or is not aligned properly.
Did you put the input shaft all they way in before you bolted the clutch pressure plate on?
plate is deffo the right way around we had to hamer the shaft back in i have a bad feeling about that as in the haynes it said it should just push back in
Well the shaft just goes through the middle of the main pinion, so whilst you should not have to hammer it, if you do there is not much that can go wrong unless you are really brutal.
Can you get gears with the engine off?
Is there any chance you have moved the linkage between the stick and the box?
If the plate is not aligned properly then that can cause great problems puting the shaft back in, did you put the shaft in before you did up the pressure plate bolts?
