Hi
My wife has a 13 reg Zafira 1.7cdti with the M32 gearbox, any idea if it will have the Mk2 version of the box with the bigger bearings?
Thanks

Being a 2013 it should have the later gearbox but it will depend on when the car was built.

Only way to tell for sure is to have a look at the endcase. There's a comparison photo on our websites homepage

Hi, please can you tell if a 2016 Insignia 6 speed manual diesel has the M32 box with the usual weaknesses? Thanks very much.

Is the post 2011 boxes bothered with these weak bearings? I thought the endcase was fixed post 2011? Only asking because we have 6 speed in 18 plate 136bhp diesel lump.

The 130 version will be the M32, 150 will be F40.

If your not sure which you have then PM me your registration (y)
It’s the 136ps 1.6 diesel, so an M32 box. Is the 170ps 2.0 diesel an F40 gearbox and therefor better? Thanks.

Around 2012 they modified the endcase and fitted bigger bearings. This helps with the 6tj gear bearing issues. We provide this big bearing upgrade to any M32 box. Lots of info on the services page of our website

The more powerful 2.0 engines are fitted with the F40 gearbox instead of the M32's.

Hi does anyone know if a m32 from a 1.7 would be a straight swap for a 1.9 zafira b?

It won't fit. You will need a gearbox from a 1.9 Zafira/Astra
