Ok when i changed my gearbox a few months ago the bearing inside the engine that the gear box spline sits in, part number 5 in realeom diagram, came out so i just used a socket and pushed it back in. Just wondering is this common and if i should replace it for a new one next clutch change. is there a special way to place them in?

As i said its the bearing part number 5 in diagram.

Yes it is advisable to replace the pilot bearing whenever a clutch is changed. Surprised it came out so easily because you need a puller to remove it.

Thanks mate.

I have had the gearbox on and off more times than some people hav had cooked dinners, so maybe it just got lose over time.

Im assuming a socket will do for pushing a new one in?
