Fiat Punto 5 Speed Manual Gearbox Problems
One of the most common failing gearboxes we recondition is found fitted to the Fiat Punto. This common failing 5-Speed Manual Gearbox has many weak points, we see these boxes fail and come in with various problems including: Front Bearing Failure (Lay-Gear / Input shaft), Worn Out Gears and Gear Hubs, Pinion Bearing Failure, Crown Wheel Failure and so on.
We upgrade the components when rebuilding the Fiat Punto gearbox, some of which include an uprated roller bearing and a bolt-on crown wheel. Depending on how the gearbox has failed, you may experience various problems and if a gearbox fault is caught in the early stages, the repairs can be much cheaper.
Common Fiat Punto Gearbox Faults:
- Stuck in Gear
- Jumping Out of Gears
- Crunching Gears (especially 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th)
- Gears Not Going In (especially 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th)
- Noisy Gearbox (whining / grinding noise)
Note: If the front bearing has failed, you may need to change your clutch due to oil contamination.
Commonly when your gearbox fails, most garages and dealerships will only advise on replacing the unit. A new replacement gearbox can work out to be very expensive and comes with a 12 month limited warranty. Used second-hand parts are a common choice for motorists because they are cheap – but they will also come with a limited 30-90 day warranty and being that these gearboxes are such common failures, you may end up developing a fault with the second gearbox.
