Re: Vinny's Rover 220 GSi Turbo Diary - New years eve 2019 - Gearbox issues

So upon further inspection its tinkled all of its gearbox oil out, well virtually all.

Explains the noise,

600 trouble free miles, new seals last summer.

I have my original 50k nasp box, which would be ok for light driving for now!

thoughts?
