Default EGC Gearbox

Noticed whine from box at 640 miles got worse and I thought input shaft bearings.
Took to dealer and agreed gearbox problem and it went in.

10 days have past they say the bearings have been ordered but ARE NOT IN STOCK ON BACK ORDER, no idea when they will appear, so beware EGC owners g/b bearings have been a problem with the citroen equivalant apparantly.

I would consider that if the bearings were nor available a new gearbox should be fitted and the faulty one returned to peugeot.

The whine is worse at 35 to 45 MPH in any gear for info.

The box itself is the same as the normal manual. The only difference is the addition of a load of servo gubbins to replace the gearstick, so the risk is equally that same to manual box owners.

But the risk is negligible. More than half a million of this boxes on the road and yours is the first to be reported on the UK s biggest peugeot website, so I wouldn't start panicking just yet.

If you mean car was new and only had 640 miles on the clock and they want to put bearing in I would not be a happy bunny

No problem things break but 640 miles nono I would expect a box or replacement car, but most will disagree but that poor

I do take choppers point though it would not put me off the car just unlucky

Default Bearings

You would have hoped they would have some parts for them.

Default EGC Gearbox

Apparantly this fault is prevalant on the C4 picasso semi auto box same as used in 2008 it has been for 3 yaers, dealers are wary of taking semi auto versions in PX because of the problem. As interest I looked for extended warranty quote from firms online most do not cover EGC gearboxes.
Why is this fault developing on semi auto boxes and not on manual, does the auto change put more stress on bearings??????????????????????????????????????.
Anyone with tech knowledge on this box.
PS someone else has same problem 500miles.

Default Ok demonstrator does not make noise.

Seem to be in limbo at the moment, noise still there would not be able to sell easily anyone who noticed it would be put off, especially to a garage PX.
At the moment service director is supposed to ring me have not heard yet.
Thinking of having an idependant inspection done in hope of diagnosis at best, a report stating faulty at least.
Very pissed off.
