I just bought a Calibra 4x4 Turbo last week and its already having problems. I think i'm just one of the most unluckiest people wit cars (they have all had loads of probs).
Anyway the problem is that it needs a new casing for the gearbox & most garages I've tried so far wont touch it, cause its a Cali 4x4. One garage said he would replace the casing, if I could get the box out of the car first, but it seemed quite expensive just to do that.
Apparently it also might need new engine mounts, as they are weak (possibly the cause of the problem?).
It seems to drive OK in 5th and 6th, but in the lower gears it clunks & struggles.
If anybody in the North West can help, either supplying a replacement gearbox casing and/or removing&fitting, I would be most appreciative.
