Re: Manual Gearbox Query

It would be worth checking that the withdrawal lever has clearance and not sticking.

Another way to check the strength of the clutch assay is to drive the vehicle at a fair speed keeping your foot on the accelerator , quickly dip the clutch and release. If the clutch is faulty you will know.

Re: Manual Gearbox Query

Owing to the fact that the GB is losing oil there is a strong possibility that the GB spigot seal is leaking and oil going on the clutch and driven plate.

Check the drain hole on the bottom of the bell housing for signs of an oil leak .
