Wanted.
tips or links also appreciated. 30-40000miles max. as most of these gets a bearing breakdown sooner or later.

In Norway all (most) scrappers puts all their parts in one common database.
Is there a similar service in the UK?.

Hi Yakuza, if you dont have any success like me in sourcing another Gbox then you may want to consider doing what I did and fit a rebuild kit from eBay. My mechanic fitted it with a new exedy clutch and its been great now for a couple of years.

Too late, was about to order these when the bearings collapsed and broke off parts of the gears along with it..
My advice would be that if you have the slightest sound, park your car and order bearings before it is too late.

Anyone got a tip on a thrustworthy english scrapper? From what i see on the TV-shows I am not so sure if there is any. :) ?

Reading all articles on the R72 g'box and its issues, I am absolutely flabbergasted that nobody has jumped at the chance of refurbishing these gearboxes in order to supply them refurbished on an exchange basis.
Its quite clear that they are in some demand, and with the amount of vehicles that seem to be being broken up and scrapped I would have thought that more R72 g'boxes would have been available.
Why is this not happening?

I have a small amount of concern with mine in so much as metallic particles were found in the box during a recent drain and refill.
I'm not aware of any horrible noises while driving the car, though once warmed up there is a faint whine when at idle - I'm not even sure if that's the gearbox though.

Isn't it correct that R72 gearboxes rarely fail suddenly?

If I am properly informed, the typical failure of these gearboxes usually develops gradually, with sufficient acoustic and behavioral warnings to be able to take a remedy on time, before the inner parts disintegrate and create extensive damage.

Or have many people had sudden catastrophic failures?

I have been used to hearing bearing sounds all the time both from my own SJ413 gearboxes and from other mech equipment. I thought my gearbox was not so bad but i had been hearing hissing noise for a while. not so loud, but it was there i was planning to order the bearings last Thursday, but i was interrupted by something at work so did not get around to it.
So during the weekend i had a 10km drive and noticed the sound had gotten worse.
still way less than my SJ gearbox.
Parked the car and went to a party, left the car.
Then next day I went to collect the car and when i was driving home after 5 km drive half way home, it went out with a bang.

Max: there is such service both in the UK thru KAP Suzuki and some german company on ebay..
prices are not terrifying but varies.
EDIT: it was CAM suzuki not KAP.

For me the sulution was the last one in a norwegian scrapper, with 41000km from 2013. On its way now.

thanks for all replies!

Thanks Yakuza.
It could be that I've just been spoiled rotten over the years with my involvement with MGs - there is nothing that cant be bought, recycled, refurbished or exchanged and MGs are rarely ever scrapped these days; body shells have to be be excessively bad for a car to be destroyed.

With the enthusiastic following that the Jimny clearly has I'm just a bit surprised things aren't more prolific.

I haven't looked at KAP Suzuki yet but I do recall my brother mentioning them in a favourable context so I will go and investigate :)

my 2007 jimny developed a gearbox whine about two weeks ago ; the old chap I bought it from was a diy mechanic ; I jacked the car up and a large amount of oil ran on to the floor ; so I am wondering if he has not replaced the bolt correctly ; I will be checking this weekend
