Firstly Happy new year to All,Hope you all had a great winter break.

Secondly I'm hoping someone can help me, Whilst off roading just before Christmas my gear box locked in 4th gear. a bit of road side inspection showed nothing that could be sorted.

So over Christmas I dropped the box out and stripped it down, now here comes the problem. I need to replace the 3-4th selector and there are two different versions in the part book: FRC1758 and FRC6996. one for A -C and one for D suffix. I have an A suffix but this has been rebuilt by land rover and may have D suffix parts.

So.... What are the difference between the two parts and how can I tell the two apart? Question Question Very Happy Very Happy

Hi, I've had a look in my parts book and I see what you mean, if it was me I'd get both and then use the one that matches it then flog the other or you could take a photo of the one you have then maybe email it to a Land Rover specialist and ask, sure they would help. Good luck with it anyway john
