Now for my second thread of the day, as I have said I am not that mechanically minded in previous posts, when my 407sw diesel auto is reasonably warmed up, up a slight incline or a bit extra throttle I get a high revving before finally it will clunk into gear, dealer took a look and did diagnostics, told me it was either hydraulic block or gearbox, now at quoted best part of over 4k for a gearbox from Peugeot you can see i'm rather reluctant to even consider buying one from them, I have seen on other forums that the hydraulic block is a bit of a weekness on these models, and as it will be the cheaper first option I am hoping it is that, has anyone with the same autobox had these problems on this forum, and if so any ideas how much a hydraulic block will cost and where to buy, 2007 90.000mls

Thanks very much for any replies,

i'd try a GEARBOX specialist in the first instance (rather than peugeot ,who would probably prefer a new box)the independant is more likely to know how to fix it cheaply and quickly too,yellow pages for local firm??

i wouldn't trust many others....
i have a friends experience to convince me ,he got them to fit a bearing only instead of replacing the whole 'box in a rover 216 bubble shape,much cheaper!:thumb:

ps it helps to put your approx location in the member info area at the side of the page so specific replies can be given....a common missing item...
