  • Have you tried to change the fluid in the box / checked the fluid level ?
  • Yes its full.. The car is going to a gearbox specialist this week to see if its an economical repair,<div><br></div><div>The body and interior need for nothing - such a shame.</div>

    is the gear box just full or has the oil been changed? old oil is a nightmare and needs swapping out ideally. Unfortunately unless you can find a cube gearbox you don't have options for replacement I've heard back. The dealer we have contact with through the club has tried a Micra swap and the ECU won't talk to it.<div><br></div><div>is it regular auto or CVT? Oh and where are you as Dan has said he could take a look if your not far from them.</div>
  • Hello - thanks for your reply<div><br></div><div>The gearbox is a 1.5 auto CVT.</div><div><br></div><div>Spoke to Cube Cubic and they recon they are as rare as hens teeth.</div><div><br></div><div>I've got it in a gearbox place for analysis but think its not a cost effective repair.</div><div><br></div><div><br></div>
  • Dan Bell in southend has a contact that can repair CVT gearboxes but it's £1000 apparently so could well not be. A replacement CVT box is like gold dust though so could be your only option. Beyond that it's a case of part it out and make your money back.
  • 152061909675 eBay selling this cvt £375
  • oh no.... lol

    I just paid the £1200 to have it rebuilt!!!!

    That's the way it goes. Just my bloody luck
  • That gearbox is in Ireland so probably would have cost a fee Bob to get across here. That's what I keep telling myself. Damn
  • 152061909675 eBay are saying this cvt £ 375 may help
  • I wouldn't feel too bad about the £1200 rebuild. The box should be like new when it comes back, that £400 could have it's own issues once installed or fail in a few months where as your rebuild should serve you well for a long time to come.
