I've got a problem of failing syncromesh on my 2001 Ducato 1.9, the local gearbox specialist tells me the box is obsolete and he can't get parts so won't touch it, anyone know of anywhere that might be able to sort it?

My parents had the same when 5th gear failed on their 95 2.5 ducato but a local garage sorted it no problem.
Fiat couldn't supply the part so I don't know where it came from but they never questioned availability just looked at it and rang back later the same day with a price.
I would try another garage.

Other places have given the same answer, this was going to - possible expensive - specialists.

Do you know if it's the 1.9 Fiat engine or the 1.9 Peugeot/Citroen one?

Just because it says Fiat on the badge doesn't necessarily mean it has all Fiat parts.

If it is a Fiat engine I may know where you can get a complete one.


PS
from this it looks like it might be a Peugeot/Citroen one

Ah! I think it is a Peugeot/CitroŽn engine, so I basically need to tell the experts that and hopefully they'll then find they can get bits?

I think it should be the same as a Fiat Ulysee/Citroen Synergie/Peugeot 806 of the same age.

Later models of that (and the Ducato) use the Hdi engine.

Or the Boxer/Jumper, feeling more optimistic now, thanks.

You could try this guy, he dealt with the gearbox on my 1992 Citroen campervan a couple of years ago. He's brilliant with gearboxes and has a stock of used and reconditioned boxes on the shelf so may have the parts available.

I have no affiliation to this guy, I'm just a satified previous customer.

hi just seen your post, i had the same problem two years ago and had it" professionally" fixed, only to have it fail this year after less than 3500 mls on it. i have now sorted the problem entirely swapping the box for a non turbo citroen one. it cost me £150,00 with a 6 month guarantee. i did originally post a help question but no one knew the answer, after 3 months measuring and researching i now know the best way to replace the box without being held to ransom by a garage. please pm me if you need further assistance
Cheers.

If it's 2001 it looks like there is only one variant on the 1.9TD engine.
