How come the transmission needed this work Charlie? I thought 993 mechanicals were pretty much bullet proof?

Its all a very long story about my gearbox really but the short end was that the clutch failed after 1000 miles due to it not being fitted properly by a so called specialist (cant say too much as its all going down the legal route). Paragon were the nearest place to where I broke down thank god. They found a few things they werent happy with and set about fixing them but it was like those stories of trying to find an oil leak cause and end up rebuilding the engine. Ive now got a new diff refurbed gearbox which is great as the car has covered a few miles so while gearbox is out why not get things sorted. The difference is great my wallet is feeling a bit light as well but all worth it.

Thanks for the tip for getting more pics on here Martyn

Oh dear, sorry to hear that Charlie. I guess you're hoping for a settlement of sorts due to the poor install on the first clutch?
