Trashed my daughter's gearbox after offering to service her Seat Arosa as a birthday present. Instead of draining the engine oil I drained the gearbox oil. It was only a 1.0 and thought nothing of the small amount of oil required to fill the engine. Needless to say after recovering her from the side of the road and discovering why.....I kept that stupid error to myself.
Still, managed to pick up another box for about £100 and changed the clutch at the same time. She sold it a few months later (about 18 months ago now) to a work colleague, still going strong as far as I know.
All the best
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
