Everyone!

fiest timer as always, but I have a manual gearbox failure on way home as I couldn’t select a gear and neither will the car move any further than getting stuck on the motorway.

Anyway car has been towed back home and it’s confirmed that it needs a new gearbox. I sort of new at some point I would have to change the gearbox anyway as it makes a lot of noise when selecting a gear level up or down and especially when selecting a reverse gear and it’s stiff as well.

I have manage to locate a secondhand gearbox on eBay and I want know if it requires coding after the change.
My reason is cos one mechanic is charging me £250 to do the change and the Land Rover independent mechanics wants £400 to change the gearbox . And they are telling me that it will need coding and all these crap so that is why they are charging £400.
Can someone advise and confirm if it’s true.
thanks all

Why are you asking? if the garage say then can do it for £250 or £400 then they do it and it works, or don't get paid - simples.

welcome to the forum, I have changed the manual gearbox recently on my 2013 model and it did not need coding. I also had the clutch and flywheel replaced at the same time as well as the rear crankshaft seal while the gearbox was out. Depending on the year of your caryou could also [email protected] the steering [email protected] bolts for steel ones whilst the gearbox is out as it is so much easier.

Hi Binty,
yeh I’m happy with paying £250 for sure but what I am not sure is if it needs coding after replacing the gearbox, I fear that that mechanic who is not a specialist in Range Rover may not be able to code the fitted secondhand gearbox to work with my car. That is why I’m asking if it needs coding after change. Thanks

Hiya,

yoy are a star. Thanks for the advice . That’s is all what I was expected to hear. As long as replacing the gearbox with a secondhand one doesn’t need coding then I will go and get it change for £250 labour cost. Yes my model is TD4 2012 Evoque.
Thanks also for the advice on clutch change as well as you are the third person to confirm that . Top man !!!🙏👍
