The breather just pulls up for the lid of it to come off, that's also where it gets in.

Pudsey_Bear The 5th gear repair doesn't look to be that difficult if you're a bit handy

raynipper There is lots of info on that box and the weakness of the 5th. gear. It was recommended you overfill with fully synthetic gear oil.

If so the pipe needs repositioning or extending away from the gearbox also the oil will need changing asap.

Hi all, thanks for the replies. Not had a chance to reply, but i drained the box and it was full of water! Got some oil, but where on earth is the filler plug ??
Or is the plug where the water is getting in ?
The bulkhead drain tube is loose and it must have been dumping water stright on top of the switch on the top of the g box. I reckon cable ties will be enough to pull it back to over the right rear of the box.
