Hurt 915 gearbox


Recommended Posts

About 6 months ago I hurt my 915 gearbox while trying to do a "burn-out" having some fun... Besides me obviously being a dips**t and needing work there, I need to fix the issue with my car.

Here is my dilema.. 1st gear is not useable. I can use 2-5 and reverse. The car has not been driven since I did the initial damage except for today as I decided to give a repair a go. With the car idling, the box will feel like it shifts into 1st, but when the clutch is engaged the car remains stationary. If I try to shift the box into 2nd, I can feel the gears start to grind slightly, but it will not move beyond that point. I can only get back into neutral whith the car off and by rolling it backwards or forewards a bit. After it gets back into neutral, the car shifts fine for nearly regular driving.

Any usefull suggestion will be greatly appreciated. No need to comment on my driving skills or brain power please.

I can only suggest that the transaxle/clutch assembly be removed and torn down for inspection, it sounds like you have damage to the clutch disc as well as the transaxle.

Just curious.... how well did the burn out go??
