its hard to recommend one without knowing where you live. From there, people closer to you should be able to help out.

I wouldn't expect it to be a cheap job though. When I got mine done, the chap said the ZF boxes in the petrols tended to shear a couple of components and simply stop working. The GM boxes apparently like to shread bits and lunch the rest of the box to bits. :shock:
forgot to mention that i live in Edinburgh Scotland...

When you have a moment fill out your profile and put your rigs info in your signature. It'll be a big help with future posts. :thumb:
Reconditioned Range Rover 5L40-Es pop up fairly regularly on eBay for between £1000-£1500 e.g. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LANDROVER-RANGE-R ... 2ea964b6c6

Obviously there's an element of risk....

I used Ashcroft Transmissions near Luton, for my ZF auto box and transfer box a year ago. Would recommend them, both boxes supplied and fitted for £2500. Good same day service, and after 18000 miles as good as new.
