Re: Gearbox oil

When my Syncro gearbox and front diff were rebuilt I bought Comma SX75W-90 GL-4 semi synthetic on recommendation from Eurocarparts. As I am just about to start running should I leave this in or drain and replace or just use as a breakin for the first 500 miles then change? :?: Personally I would fo...

Re: Gearbox oil

Well I'm confused The Millers says GL4 can't see where it says GL4/5? You didn't mention Syncro gearbox :D Oops was looking at another Millers oil at the same time, yours says GL4 80w90. Local MF have had problems with Millers as they are going direct to the garage and supplying hence why we have l...

so whats wrong with the Millers 80W90 GL4?

It's GL4/GL5.

Don't like the GL5 part because of the brass present in the box. Plus ours is a Syncro so getting a wee bit more abuse than a normal road box.

Re: Gearbox oil

http://wiki.club8090.co.uk/index.php/Gearbox_Clutch_CVs_CV_joints_Gearbox_oil I use Millars because a local motor factor stocks it and the few quid extra is nothing compared the the money I spent on a rebuild. http://www.millersoils.co.uk/automotive/tds-automotive.asp?prodsegmentID=226&sector=C...

Gearbox oil

Popped to local MF and found that they only stock 75w-90 GL4/GL5 gear oil. Trekked around a bit and Eurocarparts sell Redline, but remember in the past this was a no for some reason and I don't like the price. Found this Mannol Basic Plus 75W90 GL-4 + link What is GL4 +, meets VW 501.50 What are peo...

Re: Back from Adventure Overland

We're back!

Left AO at 4pm, 4.15 laid up at the side of the road, 7.30 on the flat bed.

Think it may be the rear drive line, although all the noise pointed towards the front driveline.

Diagnosis tomorrow morning.
