    WHat about mounts? ask Holden its under there warranty-im not a mechanic

    And they said there is nothing wrong with it. My Dad said out with the old

    and in with the new!

    If they can't fix it they can replace it right?

    Was just curious of what a Gearbox cost thats all!

    For the older model (VN-S) wreckers will try to charge 2000+, yet a rebuild kit is 1200.

    I got quoted 3000+ for a VY shape (in other words a VU SS box) T56, as second hand. Depends weather or not you or your folks can put it in, or if they just want to drive in drive out....

    this may not acually be a gearbox problem may be something wrong with the shifter linkages. then again could be anything. for your sake lets just hope it gets covered in your warranty.
