    I have 159 1.9 JTDm 16V with swaped F40 gearbox. It uses driveshafts, gearbox and engine mounts from 2.0 JTDm. Currently building GTB2060 hybrid and planning to reach 300HP/600NM (currently 260HP/505NM with GT1756). Will driveshafts handle that much of torque? Is there any uprated driveshafts...

    Is it possible to check the oil level in the f40 gearbox with a dipstick or does it not have one?? I've just changed my oil and am curious how the level stays.

    So just replaced DMF, clutch and CSC, got the car all back together.... Filled the box with 3 bottles of redline 75W85, only to lose a fair amount out of the driveshaft (which wasn't correctly seated - arghhhhhhhhhh). I've drained the box and measured the oil - I've got 2300ml so I'm down half...

    Car is in bits! Driveshafts out Front subframe off Engine supported under sump I'm sensing the gearbox needs to slide to the left, towards passenger wheel arch, but there's isn't the clearance before the box would hit the chasis. There's 2 locating pins on the box and it needs to travel off...

    I was thinking of swapping out the M32 from my 1.9 to a F40 box from a 2.0 JTDM. The bell housing looks the same but the shaft mount/carrier bearing are different. Has anyone done this conversion? I would use the 2.0 shafts but which Clutch/Flywheel combo? Gear Selector Cables? The reason I was...

    Had a look around but couldn't find a whole lot of decent information comparing the C630 to the F40 box. We've got a C630 (we assume since it doesn't look anything like the m32) in there at the moment but unsure if it will take 250hp+ while been tracked. We got hold of an F40 box and having a...

    Hi all i recently had my clutch, flywheel and CSC changed on my 159. I noticed a substantial oil leak on the drive so took the under tray off and can see oil dripping from bell housing. The oil is crystal clear so I am fairly sure its not engine oil leaking from rear main crank seal, so that...

    Hi Guys, I'm going looking at a 2.0JTDm (2010 Plate) in a few minutes, The dealer has phoned AR to see what gearbox it has in but they could;t tell him. Is there an easy way to identify the box from the engine bay? It's on the dealers forecourt so I can;t start removing batteries etc it's...

It's gotten worse with about 60 miles of A-road driving. Yesterday i lifter the car, put it on stands and let it idle in 6th gear (speedo indicating about...

    Hi guys im doing a bit of research into gearboxes for a turbo conversion im planning on my gt 1.8 ts at the moment im leaning towards the vaux insignias cdti f40 variant as it looks very much like the same as the gearbox's used in the brera (same style external bracing for rigid casings im...

    Just affected repair on saab 1.9 16v which also uses the same gearbox. In the gearbox turret there is a fixed pin for a pivot point that goes through a nylon bush, moisture gets inside this and corrosion between bush and bracket make it tighter and tighter on pin. You can lubricate and it may...

    Hi all, My diff seals are leaking so I need to replace them. Does anyone know if these ones on ebay will fit OK as I have heard that the vauxhall F40 gearbox is the same as the one in my 2.4 20v JTDm? Best wishes, Craig
