Hi . Does anyone know if you can put an Antara gearbox into a Captiva - 6 speed manual (2014) . At the moment it pops out of second gear almost every time and local garages don’t think they can get parts to repair it. Thanks

Pamcd, First question is if you have approached a Gearbox specialist rather than just 'local garages'.
Mackie in Glasgow are GM gearbox specialists. There is an assumption here that you might be in the UK but dont know for sure because you left your World Sign-Up location blank. (The Forum system is identifying you may be in the UK).
You can try emailing them or a phone call to see if a repair/swap is possible.

There are plenty of other gearbox specialists throughout the UK if you look them up.

It would help if you completed your Sign-Up, as well as your full vehicle detail in the sections you 'missed' originally. Helpful info using the Forum here:-

The gearboxes are interchangeable, but must be from the same engine (diesel - diesel) and with the same options (with or w/o start-stop)


Make sure that your problem not generated by the gear linkage cables.
So will the 55556745 gearbox/transmission fit in place of a 55577516 gearbox/transmission?

Thats the problem with making blanket statements like "The gearboxes are interchangeable......" for a start there's different final drive ratios which wiould depend on engine power and also affect the speedometer drive. Then there's the question of 4 x 4 drive which the OP has conveniently "forgotten" to include any details about.

I've deleted the info, after all, the internet is not such a trustworthy source of data.

Safest way mate, it's too easy to get wrong info. Some people come on here looking for info and only give the barest details about their car.

I totally agree with Aussie Ed when he keeps banging on about how important it is to include all relevant details.
