Typical failure of the M32 Six speed gearbox used in various Vauxhall’s, Fiats and Alfa’s. Our assessment is that the gearboxes are routinely over shimmed at the factory causing premature failure due to excessive load on the bearings, in this case the damage was terminal and took teeth of the crown wheel as well
