I took my F18 gearbox apart just to check and reseal it but two of those plastics on gear selector forks are broken...where can I buy them?
Already looked at Vauxhall parts UK but couldn't find it...

What plastic bits? Oh hang on, maybe that's why my high geared F18WR box kept grinding going into 3rd. Good job I have a spare and a F16WR waiting in the wings. Take a pic if you can. Might have the parts here .. can't promise.

I'll have to take it apart again cause I assembled it just to have everything in place and not all over the floor
These plastic bits are actually on very tips of both selector forks and they are sliding on shaft (or bearing or what is called)...
Don't think that would be reason of your F18 grinding but I might be wrong.
They are there for some reason for sure
Pics to follow

So here are the pics...
Took me a while to take them but just had no time...
It should have four sides and it is on the tips of the selector fork
I'm still in a pursuit after 2 or 4 of these
