Gearbox for S1

My S1 1.3 box is popping out of 5th gear all the time. The linkages seem fine and so does the engine mount so looks like I'll have to have a specialist look at it.

Question is, I'm looking at buying another car with a rebuilt gti box and quaiffe diff. Which would you guys reccomend - rebuild/repair the original box or go with the gti box. Car will be on bodies etc so will hopefully be running 160bhp plus.

S1 box is far superior to the GTi with regards ratios.

That's what I thought. I love it but it's apparently had two lots of work including a full rebuild in the last 18 months or so. It's cursed.

Just use the S1 final drive, as far as I'm aware the gear ratios are the same just the FD's differ mate, gti is 3.9 I think & S1 rallye is 4.54. So putting the S1 FD in the gti box will basically make it exactly the same as a S1 box, you could switch the gti gears & diff over if you wanted to use the S1 casing but it'd probably be easier just to swap the FD over.

Get the standard one rebuilt, if you can get it out, take it to stephen briers at leeds, good prices and do a great job.

The nut on the end of 5th gear may have come loose. Could be as simple as removing the end cover and replacing or re-torquing the nut, as long as no other damage has been caused.

looking at around 100-150 for an aftermarket bearing kit, and then about a days labour, or less if you can find somebody who charges by the hour. The hardest bit is getting the 13 (I think) very shallow torx bolts out of the support plate. I've always found a decent torx bit and an air rachet the most effective way.
