Hi there fella's. Thought I'd pop on here to see if any of you could shed some light on a rather odd fault that's getting me a little bitter and twisted.
Ive recently gone for a bit of a spend up on the clio to make it ready for this seasons track days. Part of this was getting the gearbox rebuilt by a reputable highly recommended company. The box is back and fitted now but the gearbox oil I ordered didn't turn up in time. No trouble though as I had stored the oil I took out. I put that back in so I could run the car to its mot but when I got there the top of the gearbox was covered in oil and it was running off the subframe. It clearly trailed back to the breather. There was then a problem that meant the car needed to make another quick 15mile journey. I cleared the oil up and headed off.
On arrival same scene greeted me. To the point the car got an advisory on the mot for oil leak!
Iive since drained the box and put the 3.1 litres of the new gearbox oil in once it arrived. Problem remains.
I spoke to the gearbox company today and they said there's nothing they could have done that would have caused this and the only cause could be too much or the wrong oil. None of this adds up though as I used the exact oil that came out the box before it went away.
Anyone who knows they're way around a gearbox and could shed some light on this would be greatly apprecited.
