Hi, I have been having problems with my auto box for some time now it started as a kick/thump when 5th gear was engaged and went on to reverse gear sometimes not engaging and sounds like the belts slipping when accelerating and then releasing the pedal. I went to a garage last october and they changed the g/box with a reconditioned one (so I was told!) but the problems have come back and of course the waranty has expired. I've noticed on the S-Max forum that they have been having the same problems on their g/boxes and that there may be a problem with the modules communicating with each other and not the g/box needing to be replaced. I 've sent a PM to a member there but if anyone else has some useful info I'd be very grateful.
