does he work from his house or is there a workshop?

he gave me this post code to come to "Come to CV1 5NR" but that seems to be a halls of residences area?

yeah i'll just check with him next week before i head down google maps might be slightly off. i just can't see a workshop near by unless he works from home and has a lockup else where.
just thought someone on here might know but most of them haven't been of the site for ages to get any answers.

500 miles with the new clutch and recon-gearbox and all is well
the clutch pedal is a lot lighter than before. there nice and friendly at mini gearbox ltd only took them just over 2 hours to do the job

the small workshop is on canterbury street at the calor gas shop in the yard before going on to victoria street.

England Failure Symptoms of Gearbox

What were the symptons of the original gearbox failing? I ask as my daughter has just commented that the 2nd gear 'selection' has become a little 'crunchy' in her 2003 ONE!!! Currently on 60k miles

Given that these gearboxes appear to be made out of chocolate I've resigned myself to the fact it will likley need replacing at some point.
