Hi guys . Well today I made a start with my TFs service in preparation for the dreaded MOT and our forthcoming trip to Italy. All going well until I manged by accident to separate the speedo transducer from the the pinion housing . Now this might sound a bit like a rant but I qualify as I'm an old git . It was suggested on here that removing the pinion housing from the gearbox is a straightforward method when refilling the gearbox with oil . Well it took me nearly three hours as it was so unbelievably tight !!!
:yesnod: I have managed to reassemble the transducer and with the aid of my cordless on the pinion it seems to be working. Problem is I am going to have to use a fair bit of emery tape on the housing to get the bugger back into the gearbox . Anyone had any similar experience of this .

Just to update after I posted yesterday about the struggle to remove the speedo drive from my Tf . I set about it wuth gusto this morning and first of all tried emery cloth on the the speedo drive to aid refitting. It's still quite tight so I just accepted that they must all be tight . Then after the transducer fell apart I thought I had better inspect it as I had had enough last night. I prised it apart agaun and lubricated the inside . Fitted it back together and then back onto the gearbox . Jacked up one rear wheel and started it up to see if it still works and hey presto, all good . I then thought as I was on a roll I'd fit the new clutch slave cylinder seal kit . Was the guy who designed these cars a contortionist?? Anyway, clamped the flexible pipe so as not to loose too much fluid as these systems can be a real pain if you start with an empty system. Think it was a good call to fit a seal as the inside of the boot was a tad damp and the seal was looking rough . Back on the car and a good flush with fresh fluid . Nice pedal pressure and all gears clearing. So all in all a better day than yesterday. :woohoo:

Sounds like a real chore.

I have got the gearbox fluid change down to the 30 minutes with the aid of a 1 meter length of 8 mm tubing from an aquarium shop and a funnel using the opening on the side of the box. this is the best place to fill it as you are guaranteed to fill it to the correct level.
