Re: C544 6 Speed Gearbox....

@JOHNFIAT check the chassis number you have provided, or has been provided for you here http://www.vindecoder.net/?vin=ZFA19...&submit=Decode

Since the VIN comes back unknown, and there is no other full proof evidence of the car thus far, then nobody can provide meaningful advice so that you can be 102% sure, because the vehicle model/specification cannot be confirmed.

Since you are looking to buy from someone, in what appears to be a hurry, get a copy of the DVLA registration document from the owner, and confirm here what the paperwork states.

Otherwise sounds a bit fishy. Have you been to see and drive the car yourself? If not it could cost you.....

Re: C544 6 Speed Gearbox....

Thinking about the VIN, Fiat UK managed to decode it, so I should think its ok. I am sure that the gearbox is an M32 unit, everyone seems to think so, I'll go with the experts here. I haven't ordered one yet, but have found a recon one available. Cheers Jon

Re: C544 6 Speed Gearbox....

I spoke to my mate at fiat, he put the vin in and it worked, problem is like he said it doesn't come up with code for the box just a fiat part/order number, so still none the wiser, he said you tend to find that the M32 or what ever is just a casing number people use for slang talk, each one could have a different unit code for ratios etc?

Re: C544 6 Speed Gearbox....

D'you know, the thought did cross my mind... Here we go again, just when I resigned myself to, 'its an M32', now I find those thoughts of doubt again, could there be different ratios for different cars...?

Re: C544 6 Speed Gearbox....

I don't know
The only way I think you can do it is compare pictures of your box to others, and if you get one for the same car least you know it might be the same

Re: C544 6 Speed Gearbox....

Lol! A gearbox man said that he's pretty dam sure that it is an M32, however I'll ask re. ratios, if all M32's are the same, then...

@Jonfiat well if the model and specification is now confirmed and it is indeed a 1.9 8V Mjet, then regardless of whether the M32 casing is fitted with different ratios for different specifications, you should be looking for a replacement box that comes out from an equivalent 1.9 8V Mjet! This way you can guarantee it will be the correct box, you just have to ensure the seller of the replacement part can prove the box comes from the vehicle in question.

What you cannot prove with any certainty however, is the condition or the type of life the replacement part has had, nor the condition of the car you are looking to purchase. I would personally question what else might have been neglected with respect to the car you are looking to buy. It is up to you to uncover the truth, unfortunately that's a fact. The person looking to sell will unlikely tell you of any hidden problems, assuming of course the seller knows about any of them, as most second hand dealers are in the business of turning cars over and there are very few who would carry out a full inspection and/or any repairs/maintenance prior to putting it up for sale.

Good Luck!

Humour
