Hi,

I believe my car will require an input shaft bearing job to be done soon, it's whining in every gear now. Just wondering what would have to be done to change it? Does this seem right or am I missing tasks out? (see picture attached)

It will be a fairly labour intensive job, removing the box will probably take the average person a few hours.

the hardest part will probably be getting the shafts out

Those figures will be based on a mechanic working in a fully equipped garage so you can change that to all day to be honest mate if you are working on the drive.

are you looking to have it done at a garage or DIY?

haha no, these things are wayyy over my head, i'm looking to get a ford dealer to do it, i've got the labour rates of my local garage and i've put it into this software to see how much it's going to cost me, just confirming if the software is correct to get an accurate cost

the mk3 mondeo (not sure about others) requires the subframe to be dropped to get the gearbox out, so i guess thats where the time went?

if you allowed 4 hours to remove/replace the box, 2 hours to replace the bearing, and an extra hour or so for any unexpected problems.

so at a ford dealer charging £80 an hour? thats a fair whack excluding parts...

£90 an hour here at a ford dealer, yes it says here for my car it takes 3.0hrs to remove the gearbox, then 1.8 hours to remove the parts of the gearbox to get to the input shaft.

yeah, but remember the car has had the clutch done about 9 months ago so I shouldn't expect it to be hard because the gearbox has been removed recently?

i still wouldnt rule out the possibility as they will be stripping the gearbox you never know what you are going to uncover tbh
