Peugeot Gearbox Fault/Problems?

14
Found 13th Mar 2011
Has anyone had a problem with theirs?

My gearbox on my 206cc has gone, still drives (just about) but struggles to get uphill and the car is driving like it doesn't know what gear its in (over-revving, can't put into any gears)?

Been told I have to either replace the Gearbox completely (£325 for a reconditioned gearbox, plus fitting charges), or do a Gearbox rebuild?... Anyone know what the best option is and what price I am looking at?

Wondering if I should just sell the car as it is, and let someone else fix it as I wanted to buy something else anyway. Gearbox problems seem to be a common fault with Peugeots (if only I had known before, lol!)

I have taken it to two different garages who have said its the Gearbox... Apparently Peugeot ones only last 50,000miles on average before giving problems.
Reconditioned or get rid id say, but make sure its a proper reconditioner thats doing it,
Where abouts are you based ?

Not true, Peugeot 106 x reg, original clutch original gear box, 81000
the only problems I've ever come across with pug box's is either a slipping clutch or quite common is for the clutch release bearing to lunch itself & chew up the release bearing shaft tube !

I'm based in the West Midlands? They say 50,000 on average, depending on how it is driven - so you must be a good driver then

Haha first person ever to refer to me as a good driver, thanks very much

If your getting a reconditioning done then get a recommended builder, some are cowboys around here

Wow, thank you very much - have you used them before, were they reasonable?
I used Longbridge gearbox a good few years ago. They repaired a gearbox for me quite cheaply when everybody else wanted to sting me for a full recon.

I use a1 clutches all the time (on different cars) and they've always been reasonable. Have recommended them to quite a few people and haven't had any bad feedback yet.

Let us know how you get on. It does sound like it's just the clutch to me from the op.
