We are able to supply the MT82 6 spd manual Defender gearbox as fitted to the 2007 onwards 2.4 / 2.2 TDCi engine.
One of the common failures of the MT82 box is the premature wear of the output shaft due to a design fault. We have developed a kit to remedy this issue. You may wish to consider including this upgrade in the build of your new box to avoid future premature failure. For further information of this problem and the upgrade option click here

Many of our products are sold on an exchange basis. This is an amount charged on top of the unit price which acts as a deposit and is refundable on receipt of the exchange unit (old one coming out of the vehicle), as long as the unit is the same type, complete and not stripped, and returned within 12 months.
This means it has to be like for like as it comes out of the vehicle, having not been taken apart at all, and needs to be complete with everything the remanufactured one arrives with. If it does not arrive in this condition, some or all of the surcharge may not be refunded. A standard “stripped” charge of £75 will be deducted from any core return.
Core returned after a 12 month period will be subject to a surcharge as shown below.
The core deposit varies depending on the product.
Cores returned within number of years from date of invoice

My Defender MT82 6 speed gearbox is stuck in 1st gear,
this is common on these boxes and is just caused by the selector rail jumping into gear when the vehicle is jolted for any reason, once in gear, the shift interlock plate wont allow it to be pulled out.the gearbox consists of 3 casings, the front main casing is about 18 inches long and the rear 2 are about 7 inches long, look at the middle casing, top face, towards the rear, on the left side as you sit in the car, look for a vertical approx 10mm diameter detent plug, the earlier silver ones had a mushroom shaped head, the later black ones are flush fitted. Remove this plug, if the later one, drill a hole and use a big self tapping screw and slide hammer.Once out, you can now use a small screw driver to slide the selector rail one notch towards the front of the vehicle, this should put it back into neutral,the later detents can be fitted in place of the early ones and have a stronger spring to reduce the liklyhood of this problem occuring Note the part number for the later type detent kit is LR017294.
