Nissan Almera 1.5 Manual Gearbox Repairs + Rebuilds

Nissan Almera Gearbox RebuildsNissan Almera 1.5 Manual Gearbox Problems
Another common failing gearbox is fitted to the Nissan Almera 1.5l Petrol. It’s a 5-Speed manual gearbox and we’ve seen these coming in with many faults including input shaft bearings shot and crown wheel damage. When the Nissan Almera gearbox fails, we rebuild it using uprated parts (where possible) to strengthen the box.

Common Nissan Almera Gearbox Faults

  • Gears Crunching
  • Stuck In Gear
  • Not Going Into Gear
  • Jumping Out of Gear
  • Noisy Gearbox (Whining / Grinding)
  • Gear Problems When Hot
  • Gear Problems When Cold

Most garages and dealerships will advise on replacing the gearbox. If you manage to find a new replacement gearbox, it will be very expensive and with a limited 12 month warranty. A quick search will find you many second-hand (used) gearboxes available from breakers / scrap yards and will come with a limited 30-90 day warranty. These gearboxes are so weak and such common failures, don’t be surprised if after fitting a second-hand gearbox you find yourself back in the same situation not too far down the line. All Nissan Almera 1.5 gearboxes are failing – you run a higher risk buying from a high mileage or front accident damaged car.

  • i have 04 plate Nissan almera 1.5 which has covered126k.Have got Whirring/whining noise on acceleration(more noticeable in 1st&2nd gears) but tends to get louder when held at speed especially in 5th gear at approx 50/60mph and got a grinding noise on deceleration at any speed and and in any gear but both noises cease when either the clutch pedal is depressed or left to freewheel.i have no trouble selecting any of the gears but 1st gear can sometimes be difficult to select suspect internal gearbox fault.
