Just got my new box fitted,but sure they have fitted the wrong final drive ratio.
Speedo is reading 11 mph faster than gps speed (which i assume is more accurate ? )
Van now doing 60 mph on speedo at 3 thou rpm so real speed 49 mph ! Not got much left before i am hitting the red on rev counter !
it`s a 1.9 sdi 02k box with eaz ratios,it`s using much more fuel now ,and sounds like i need another gear after 5th,not happy with company i bought it from,and not sure what the f@.K to do now !

Hi Mike,yes spoke to the first person i spoke to before ordering the box yesterday,he admited over the phone that they sent the wrong one,not his fault,but someone else there.He said yesterday he would call back,not heard yet !
They have 2 options,option 1 they come here and collect my old box,recon it send it back,pay for removal and re fitting.Asked Paul yesterday to work me out a price for this.
Option 2 they trailer my van to their workshop in Kent,loan me another van,until i get it back,take my old box take theirs out ,mend mine,and swap them over.

Sale of goods act 1979,i have been miss sold,and they admited verbally over the phone it was their fault !

The speedo is at least 12 mph out according to the gps on my sat nav,which i assume is pretty accurate !

It`s using so much more fuel,and can`t be doing the engine much good,the ratio from 4th to 5th is not much different,as in the revs hardly drop when changing up to 5th,just sounds like i need another gear now 02K final drive ratio ? 496877

At 60 it should be approx 2k rpm in the diesel. Defo wrong ratio's so hopefully the company that supplied it will change the box and compensate you for the cost of swapping the box over again.

More confusiion !
Spoke to Dave at volks apart last week,he said he would call back,but i sisn`t get the call.
Just called again today and spoke to someone else....Apparently the box i have should have FVW ratio,this is what comes up from vw,should be the same as EAZ ratio 67 over 17 final drive 3.941.He is going to look into it for me,he said the box may have been mislabled.
Still not any further forward : )

Right Volks apart are suggesting they send me the right 5th gear.
Apparently you can remove the end cover of the box,and it should just slide out ? I s it really that simple ?
So asked tinklers for a price for that,just need to know the hours ,so they can price it for me.
Just had a look at the old box,and it has a nice hole in it 02K final drive ratio ? 496877 Won`t affect the warrenty as long as it can be welded up,and i can see no reason why it cant.
Coming to collect that today,i hope

Yeah it`s just one of those things i suppose,have to step back and think about stuff logically,was turning all the posibilities over in my head,it was either bleed clutch slave again,get a new rod thing or bingo pedal 02K final drive ratio ? Icon_biggrin,would have felt a bit silly if i had booked it in for that.

At last i got it sorted !!! 180 mile round trip,swapped out the wrong 5th put the right one in.Speedo is still reading 10 mph too fast though,revs are normal in 5th doing 80 gps telling me 70.
Need to drive alongside someone and see if it is the speedo or the gps giving wrong reading ?
