Gear box - Fiat Croma 1.8 16v 2005

Hi guys/girls, I'm in need of a gear box for my croma 1.8 petrol (2005). I' can't seem to find one anywhere but I hear it is the same gear box as a Vauxhall vectra. Can anyone help by telling me which model vectra / part number (etc etc) this is so that I can get one ordered. Many thanks

Hi,
Welcome to Fiat Forum.
Why do you need a new gearbox?
I'm at work so don't have access to information I need to give a proper answer to your question. I'll respond tonight.

Re: Gear box - Fiat Croma 1.8 16v 2005

The 1.8 Petrol has the following gearbox.

Type: C543 (F17)

Ratios:

1 : 3.727
2 : 2.136
3 : 1.414
4 : 1.121
5 : 0.892
6 : N/A
R : 3.308

See this web page of Open/GM F17 Boxes: http://www.opel-infos.de/getriebe/f17.html

In the table (page down) the exact matching Opel/GM box is the F17(+)CR MG4

* = The RPO codes M79 and MG4 indicate only the gear set (CR or WR), but not the transmission type. A differentiation of the transmission types using the RPO codes was introduced later.

A google suggests the following:

Vectra C 1.8 16v (Z18XER) - F17+CR, 3,74 (gearbox)

Vectra C Vectra C 1.8 16v (Z18XER) sounds/looks about right but you will need to do a little more research yourself to be certain.

I wish you had advised this in your post.

I went to a lot of time and trouble (especially as I no longer religiously follow this Croma forum and no longer own one) to research the gearbox info.

Yes, understand. I was being a "Mr Grumpy" by the end of yesterday. Most unusual for me.

Don't forget to advertise it in the classifieds section on Fiat Forum. And please tell the new owner about the Forum. There are not many Cromas left and FF is a good source of information.
