MS4 Gearbox Issues

Post by Dazlindazza » Thu Apr 04, 2019 6:04 pm

Evening all,

Having a few problems with my corniche since re launch.

Gearbox is currently out and in a local shop for repair. They say the cone clutch is worn and would benefit from replacement, but we are not clear on part numbers as it would seem that the original part has since been replaced by two separate parts. Is anyone able to confirm whether this is the case?

Also, if indeed we are looking at the right part, it’s bloody expensive so the engineer has said that although it’s not a permanent fix he can take a shim out which will bring the cone closer together so I can get a bit more life out of it. This means absolutely nothing to me being non mechanical so can anyone advise if this option is worthwhile considering?
