Hi

I need a new synchro mesh. Probs moving from 4th to 5th. Anyone got any advise on a good local mechanic.

I live in Basingstoke.

Been quoted £450 including parts and labour does that sound reasonable?

Have you tried changing the gearbox oil to redline (not sure what it is?)....

Many people have done that and the notchiness has become smooth???

Yeah give some Redline heavy duty gear shock oil, mine use to crunch badly from 4th-5th and it stopped it completely.

Im definetly going to give the redline trick a go. Sounds like a lot of people are getting good results.

How much do you need to put in?

try RSP, I think they might have some but not sure, they are over in Alton so not a million miles away.

You'll need to buy 5litres (well, 5x 1 quart bottles as they're american measurements, but 1 quart is virtually 1 litre) :)

Opie Oils now supply this.

Thanks for the advise I have ordered some £54 for 5 litres I hope it does the trick and we don't have to go down the repair route.

Will update you.

Cheers Juliab
