I had thisvyesterday in the frost pulled away and boom then cilck click clickHi
Can you please let me know how this turned out as i have the exact same thing just happen to me?
Could i possibly contact you?
I havevab2 post lift so up she went . No boltsvleft in thevptu and front to resr shaft cv pulled apart and destroyed €990 for a shaft. The front cv is a tiny €30 part Ford robbery
1 lug is gone off the ptu and 2 lugs of the main gearbox going to put it together with 3 bolts and locktite. Might be able to get the shaft repaired at a specialist in Dublin
Ans as they it will then be history ☹😒👿
What is anoying is the spare lug on the gear box unusedYou may get away with tapping the thread further down the holes and using longer bolts (studs would be better if you can still get the transfer box on after).
I know it was a pain to fit the gearbox with the transfer box still in situ.
Ask your mechanic if he can have a go at salvaging the holes, 3 bolts is not enough unfortunately.
