Hi Seb, yes that’s exactly what I wanted to obtain. The whine from the gearbox has always been there, but I bought windows from Luis in Korea and fitted them, and driving around like that you notice the whine even more. Really nasty and it doesn’t give me the impression they used a good quality lubricant. Fixing that would be great.
I live alongside the Ligurian riviera but I am in Milan through most of the week for work so if you’re dropping by anytime soon let me know! I’d be happy to grab an appetiser together. I’ve written a mail to two Swedish shops but haven’t heard anything back and I doubt I will. I’ve written these guys as well:
The thing about the gearbox is that according to the manufacturer’s specification (it actually is an Italian product from Comex S.p.A.) you need to change the oil every year with 0,8l of 80W90 API GL5 oil with EP additives so I guess that using a higher quality oil will dramatically reduce this interval.
