I've a 2006 Anniversary with 1.8 Duratec Engine
Is it possible to remove the gearbox from inside the car, If so is there room to remove the bell housing past the bulkhead, it looks very tight. If it's not possible do you remove Engine and gearbox in one lump
Would it be possible to identify model and make of my gearbox
Regards Stuart Kellett

Hi Mr K,
I think you'll find it's an MT75, straight out of a Transit.
Bit agricultural and 1st, combined with the rear axle, a bit short. Does me though.

Sorry, cannot answer the other questions from personnel experience though have gazed at the power train more than once and wondered about removal. There's a good deal of room so I've always thought engine & gear box through front end. Don't particularly want to do it though. Why do you?


Regards

Thanks Geof
Not looking forward to what I might find. Developed a slight swishing/rumble in second gear, changed oil made no difference. Old oil like new no bits or discolouring

Don't get too concerned just yet, gearboxes make lots of different noises. And, being sat so close these seem to be accentuated.

If you remain concerned perhaps you have a local decent specialist who could take a listen but for me I'd have to be very convinced before getting the spannets out.

Let us know how this develops.

The Ford gear box fitted to my 2011 4:4 has never been good. About a year ago I had a long discussion with our local Ford transit garage. The service guy went to a lot of trouble looking at what oils were & now Ford recommended for my gearbox model. Finally I changed the oil to the latest. 75w-90-BO made a huge difference.
