Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.


Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

last stop, im hoping to find a gearbox guru.

i started having issues in feb, 5th gear started slipping out, at first when backing off throttle, then over course of week, was slipping out at meerest touch of throttle. now, if i applied the smallest of pressure to the gear stick, 5th would hold a full power run.


i thought id sorted this by adding powerflex bushes to the torque arm mounts, and car has run perfectly till last sunday. symptoms now repeating.


any ideas that dont involve a gearbox change??



oh, hi everyone, ive been gone a while.

Have you checked the torque arms are still OK? I do not know them on the NG9-3 but on my 9-5 the alloy frame was broken so the bush was not doing a lot. However, from the old days, it sounds like detent springs gone. No idea if this is possible on a modern 9-3 'box.
