The good news was our Boxer based Pollensa campervan only failed the MOT on one rear wheel bearing; the bad news is that on investigating a new engine noise I reported, they found the gearbox was failing. Not the water ingress problem, there wasn't much emulsification in the oil, but there were metallic particles. After being unable to track down a reconditioned box of the same version, my garage sent the gearbox off to a specialist to be repaired/rebuilt however having determined the problems they are unable to obtain the necessary parts to repair it. Peugeot having originally given a price for a new gearbox have now come back to say they're not able to obtain one.

It's a Peugeot Boxer 2.8 HDi 320 MWB with transmission type BVM5 4X2 and gearbox BVM M5GT.

If anyone has any ideas where we might be able to track down a suitable reconditioned replacement box I'd be really grateful as we were hoping to get a few more years out of our beloved Pollensa.
