Find a transmission specialist and ask them for their opinion. I think a lot of garages dont really have a clue what it is - they are happy to strip it and bill you loads for the privelage.

I know a few people who have been to 3 garages and they have all said different things - some verging on silly.

Now's the time to fit an LSD Steve Sounds like Peugeot are trying to shaft you. Pro-Tec (Corsa Rally specialists) are only charging me 150 to:

remove current gearbox from Corsa, strip it and extract diff, fit diff into another F15 box together with different cluster and then fit the whole assembly back onto car.
