Re: Input shaft bearing renewal

This is a great thread, it should be made sticky.
Thanks a lot Mr. Wild, wherever you are and whatever car you drive these days.
This is the first major work I've done to my Punto 1.2 8V 2006. I did it in 2017 I think. The gearbox seal broke and I was to find out the bearing inside the gearbox was missing about half of the balls. I could not find a mechanic willing to open up the gearbox, I ended up doing it myself with the great help of Mr. Wild here.
Thank you again, Mr. Wild.

Re: Input shaft bearing renewal

I have just done a 100HP six speed box. Everything is as described by Mr Wild BUT the input shaft now has a non-caged roller bearing, carrying the max number of rollers. My bearing with 120,000 is absolutely fine. HOWEVER. The input shaft seal has dried up allowing oil to scrap my not very old clutch. The only way to change this seal means following Mr Wild's advice to open the box. You will need help to realign the reverse gear selector ball joint as you bolt up the carrier. A magnetic stick is also very handy.
