Steve is correct, the G16 & G31 are almost completely different, apart from both being dogleg 5 speed boxes based on the 915, the parts used are not compatible... would never happen in today's boring cars :lol:

Evening all,

Took Alan Stokes for a drive in my car on Monday, as some nasty noises coming from my rear end (yes, AND the car!!!!)

Had these rotational noises getting worse for the last year, getting gradually worse.............. :booze: :booze:

Alan says now sounds like the LSD, but may not be limited to that, and will have to remove and inspect.............oh dear................well, at least it is in good hands...............

Wish me luck!

:beer:

Just in case I happened to have bought a metaphoric gold mine, I went to find my gearbox part number today on the turbo:

915.301.311.21

Although I'm not certainly about that final "1". Here's the picture. Does it mean anything, or is it just a "normal" snailshell?

It’s a casting number. Your gearbox number is on the bottom spline facing the road. Will be a number followed by /12 if it had a lsd from the factory.

So here's my code:

3101035587

Nothing special I guess, and certainly not an LSD. Saves on the envy anyway!
