Lotus Elise S2 (01), K series - Gearbox

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Does anyone know if the Gearbox in a Lotus Elise S2 (01), K series is mounted in other Rover cars? I might need a new gearbox and that is the reason to the question. Problem with the reverse gear….

Thanks in advance!

They were fitted to both the Elise S1 & S2 running the K series engine, they were also used in the MGF and MG ZR so you shouldn't have a problem picking up a replacement but just make sure you get the right ratio.

Lots of good info here - https://wiki.seloc.org/a/Rover_PG1_gearbox

S2 is close ratio except for the 111s. S1 is the other way round.

So you'll need a close ratio one. B4BP

Trouble with reverse may well be a linkage issue?

Hello Martin,

Many thanks for your reply as well. The previous owner upgraded the gear linkage, quick shifter and new gear cables back in 2016. 

I will consider looking into this! 

Kind regards

Check the clips are still in place that hold the cables near the linkage.

Hi. 

All of the above i.e check the clips on the "abutment" near the linkage but also there is a limit screw at the front of the gear stick housing which needs to be set correctly.  The c clip under the gear lever can also foul on the left cable if its fitted incorrectly. A bit of tinkering may well save you the cost of a gearbox so worth it if you're that way inclined. And if it is a limit srew or some other part on the linkage is out or catching, a new box  isnt going to work either :wacko: so worth eliminating first. 

Cheers

Guys,

It seems that the problem was solved after some tuning of the gear linkage.

Thanks again for the advices! 

Cheers
