Hi everyone!

I had some issues with my Jaguar and apparently it was the gearbox.

I ordered a replacement one (used) and it looks like the mechanics are not able to program it and suggested to get a new one.

As the car has been with them for more than 2 weeks now (1 week for the diagnosis and 1 week to fit the gearbox...), and only today after I had a sort of argument on the phone they called me back to say it doesn’t work and need to get a new one.

I am not saying I am not trusting them (recently moved so direct experience with them), but would like to hear if that could really be an issue, or they don’t have the right tools to program it.

Would love to hear some thoughts/suggestions as between gearbox, mechanic and car hire I am spending a lot of money here, and it is not really a great time for this..

Hi Ron. Sorry to hear your troubles.
Is the garage a Jaguar specialist? Perhaps the garage are only now realising their limitations and are back peddling on doing the repair! Then again perhaps there is a problem with the second-hand gearbox. I'd like more details as to what the garage has done so far to get the replacement gearbox up and running before coming to a conclusion. You're certainly in a difficult position.
