Hi Everyone, I'm in need of a little assistance please. It would seem the synchros for reverse have failed on the wifes manual 2008 2.2 Ex as it is a right bugger to get into reverse and when it is in it pops out when any sort of power is put through it.

Ok so I'm looking for a replacement box and the part number I've managed to get from Honda is 2011rppg62 (£6500 for a new one if anyone is interested :facepalm:). I have lookied and can't seem to find an exact match but the ones I have found all seem to come back to PPG6-xxxxxxx, MG6 and 7RPP.

I've not had chance to get under the car yet and check the code on the box due to work but is this quick and easy or a ballache because of the plastic casing on the underside?

The main question is does anyone know the differences in gearbox versions for the mk8 2.2 diesel manual gearboxes? I assume as long as mine says 7RPP on it I will be fine or is this a minefield of different sensors and ratios?

As always thanks in advance and any help really is appreciated.

Hey you not considered a gearbox rebuild instead at a specialist? They usually update the parts when you give it in for rebuild preventing further losses. Also i would speak to honda and ask for a contribution depending on the age of the vehicle and the mileage.

I would go with a reconditioned box really, would save you alot of money. A recon is around 500

Thanks for the replies. The car has done 90,000 so I wouldn't of expected it to fail but I suppose it's the luck of the draw. I've spoken with a couple of refurb places as that was my preferred option but the price and mainly the time the car would be out of action means I've had to source a second hand unit and had it arranged to have them swapped next week.

Most decent places will have a courtesy car for you. As for time, it shouldn't take more than a week for any gearbox specialist to strip, recondition and road test it.

It took all off 3 days for a specialist to rebuild a automatic gearbox and that was immensely more complex than a standard manual sequential gearbox.
