    GT Transmissions Gearboxes

    BEWARE ! BEWARE ! GT TRANSMISSIONS, STRATFORD UPON AVON

    In May I purchased a refurbished exchange gearbox, clutch and 5th gear upgrade for my T4 camper an had it fitted for a total of 955 from GT Transmissions run by Glen Mills in Stratford Upon Avon.
    When I got home I found parts missing - plastic engine/battery divider panel, timing inspection rubber plug and the 2 small M6 nuts from my engine pan.
    The gearbox developed a whine so another was fitted that had a rattle that was caused by a long series 13mm impact socket that had been left on top of the box behind the selector. This gearbox has developed a leak now and I have found a cap head screw missing from the near side drive shaft flange.
    I have now visited GT Transmissions 3 times now and although they have given 12 months guarantee I do not want to visit them again.

    My advice to anyone buying a gearbox from GT Transmissions or VAG Transmissions run bye Glen Mills is to pay Paypal using your credit card and you claim a full refund within 120 days if using Barclaycard.

    Can anyone advise me of a good gearbox recon specialist.

    Appreciate the heads-up bud.
    So if I understand your post correctly..... You're not a happy consumer? What is it you want them to do now having embarrassingly changed out the 1st box? - A 2nd claim against the warranty? Put your claim in writing allowing them to resolve your issues but if not, go through the online small claims process - it might aid you covering any cost differences & reimbursements in regard to getting it replaced/rectified.

    I use Geartec in Kidderminster. I'm 25 miles west from Skiiddyminster and in the trade , they pick up and deliver and do a top notch job. Did my daughters T4 1,9ABL box in 2014 700 quid then. Not that far from your location even if you have to drop box yourself.
