Peugeot Boxer (Symbol) Gear Box

Post by stonemarkate on Thu Jun 18, 2015 3:52 pm

The gear box on our T Reg Symbol went and the garage have had great difficulty in obtaining replacement parts in UK, they have finally found what they need in Sweden! Has anyone else had this problem? They say that this model is obsolete and that many dealers are refusing to take them in for repair.
TES Transmissions (the people who are undertaking the job) have an excellent reputation and are specialists in this field so if they are having trouble what is the future for our much loved Symbol?

There are many parts still available from Poland but a specialist gearbox company should be able to make parts themselves. There have been previous threads on the subject with links to specialist re-builders.

Thank you, I am new to posting and only saw the threads after mine appeared.  I will ensure the water ingress problem is sorted though before it happens again.

One month later we finally picked up our van!  Reconditioned gearbox, clutch kit, oil and labour £2,149.39 inc VAT.!!!  The garage have said that this is the last one they will take in for repair as obtaining the parts is a nightmare.  So what do we do?  Keep our lovely van until it dies and then sell for spare parts or sell now with a 12,000 mile/12 month warranty? But that seems a little dishonest to say the least.

Look in the latest edition of MMM magazine. There is an article about a gearbox repairer where they are having no problems reconditioning them at a cost of less than a thousand if I remember correctly. I'm away on tour at moment and the mag is at home. There must be other members who read MMM and can give further details. Could a moderator move these posts on this subject to technical section where it could be found by members more easily.

Thank you but too late I'm afraid, we have just paid over £2,000 and have booked our place in the workhouse.  However, I will keep the information for future reference just in case.
