Re: 1.2 manual Gearbox

Hi Chris,
I have a Opel Grandland X with the same 1.2 engine and gearbox from Peugeot. AND exact the same whining problem! As well as in Holland it is on German fora and in England.
I'm in a long process with Opel and ultimately they changed the gearbox but it didn't fix the whining. An independently expert looked at the problem and did know the problem is known, also with Peugeot en Citroen. The expert made a report and concluded it's not a mechanical defect but a product property. It has got to do with product tolerances, whatever that means.
Now I'm waiting what this conclusion means?

it means that it works properly and it'll never be changed/ fixed/replaced or whatever :)
we'll just need to get used with this annoying noise and hopefully we can sell the cars to someone that cannot spot it. :)
I've already changed my driving habits and always avoid 60kmph, I'm doing 57-59 or 66-67 :)

Good luck and hopefully we'll not meet here in 3 years with exploded gearboxes

Apparently Peugeot do not sell GT line 5008 with manual gear anymore.
Why they do not recognise the problem in DK while I received an official mail from Peugeot that they do recognise the problem. I can forward you the mail if it can help you.

Well I do the same I avoid the 62 km/h 😂
This really sucks. If they do not fix the problem, I believe this will be my last Peugeot ever and will be glad to give it back at the end of 4 years lease contract....
It is good to test your patience though and learn to stay zen, there are more worse things in life.
