Disco TD5 Gear Box Problem - a Solution

Some time ago I posted a question regarding what I thought might be a fairly
serious synchro-mesh problem with my (then)new disco TD5 .



As an long haul ng user / contributor (but not to this ng), I was hoping
for some help but what I actually got was bandwidth-consuming drivel ("give
it a few more miles", "have you ever actually driven an LR before" etc,
etc).



Useless. Absolutely bloody useless, but I suppose that's usenet for you...



For the benefit of any other folks who might have been given the run-around
by LR, it turns out that this *is* an LR problem (and one that they knew
about all along, hence the use of a LR approved gearbox oil 'additive' which
needless to say didn't work). They have now, after a year's worth of
agitation on both my and the dealer's part, agreed to replace the box.



One point I am left wondering about:-



Did the LR 'expert' who was originally wheeled in last year to 'examine' the
vehicle fail to identify the problem, or did he know *exactly* what it was
and just decided to lie? And which would be worse?





PS - In the event that the lame contributors I referred to above (I'm
sure you know who you are) feel inclined to add more noise to this post,
forget it. I don't subscribe to this ng and I won't see your (irrelevant)
contributions. And to anyone else being stone-walled by LR - good luck and
stay with it.

Re: Disco TD5 Gear Box Problem - a Solution

Maybe I am just adding "noise" and "bandwidth-consuming drivel " but I just
wanted to say that (as only an irregular contributor) I have always found
this group to be very helpful, with a lot of folks genuinely wanting to help
and often giving good suggestions.

If you are not reading this group why bother to post?

Re: Disco TD5 Gear Box Problem - a Solution

Just in case you are still watching, ime having the same problem

54 plate with 6500 miles and the gearbox is hopeless. Sometimes impossible
to select 3rd and 1st.

MD has changed the oil, but is talking about a new box.


Cound you email me fnl401@yahoo.co.uk

Would like to swap notes on this.

Nigel

My crystal ball suggests that you have only ever posted once under this name
to AFL.
You are however a teacher working in the Midlands who is an Elvis fan and a
bit of a sourpuss.

No he's not. He's a complete twat who seems to believe that we all
sit here waiting for clueless wankers to ask us questions. Proudly
contributes nothing and then moans when he gets what he has given...

I hope his gearbox explodes....

There, isn't that a nice way to ask ? Try it Ian.

Nigel,
What is the TD5 box. Is it related to the Disco's R380 ?

It is the R380. I don't know if it was modified between Disco 300 and
TD5 implementations.
