enlightened us thusly:
>there seems to be a lot of heat coming from my 130s gear box through underneath the seats. If outside temperatures are above around 24 degrees it gets very hot inside the cabin from that part of the car. If it is cooler outside it is no problem at all. The transfer and gearbox are to hot to rest my hand on it after driving. Is this normal? how hot should a gearbox get? It only seems to be a problem if I cruise continuously around a 100km/h
>any comments are appreciated
check the gearbox and T-box transfer levels. However, you very likely have
a cat under there as well... and they get hot.
There should be a warning light, I should think, for transmission temp., if
it really gets hot.
