I booked for 21th Nov in the dealer to check the car + service.

I'm driving the car using the pedal shift 1,2,3 and no acceleration on changing to 4 and there no fault.
if I change to 5th the gear will stuck.

I will try to update what i got..

p.s. there some garage called "Dexol" said: there other 2002 aston 5speed gearbox got the same fault and they change some parts of the gearbox (the dealer asked to change the hole gearbox).

Up-date:

I contact with "HWM Aston Martin, New Zealand Avenue, Walton on Thames, KT12 1AT"

and I got this:
"The gearboxes are available as reconditioned units. The retail is £9,392.00, we can give you 20% off this price. If you can return your old gearbox and it is not damaged beyond repair, then AML will refund you 50% of £9,392.00, meaning that with discount you will pay £3756.80. I hope this makes sense, please let me know if you would like a shipping quote or if you have any further questions"

there collaborators not the stupid dealer in Dubai.
I will wait for the gearbox report and then decide what to do.

p.s: when your engine is cool, check the coolant and see if it's mixing with transmission fluid
might be a long shot, but it's worth a look
Thanks man, I'm waiting for the dealer report it now 3 days in the service.

The dealer should be able to tell you if there were any significant changes between the model years. I would tend to doubt it.
You're right, but I will contact with "Aston WorkShop" better than our dealer.

If u see the report hhhhhhh, they ask to change stupid thing's.

Up-Date (after watching Al Ahli vs AC Milan in Dubai):

The Gear Box price:
Local Dealer (Dubai): 132,000.00 AED = 22,998.48 GBP
hwmastonmartin.co.uk: 4,600.00 GBP = 26,377.30 AED
(plus shipping price + they want the old Gear Box)

* I found a new Garage called "Fiorano Service Center": 7,870.00 GBP = 45,097.40 AED (include the install ....)

*All the price above for a new Gear Box.

so I choose "hwmastonmartin.co.uk" but they havent reply for 5 days!!
I will wait then the "Fiorano" will be my choice.

Quick post:
I doubt this will change the situation much (and not sure if you have or have not seen),
but we have an 06 Volante parting out on this forum....
http://www.astonmartinlife.com/forums/parting-out-2006-t1078.html
Otherwise the 7,890 is close to factory price, iit is a good 2nd choice.
Thanks,

Up-Date:
the insurance company will pay 90% off the GearBox price + Change 2 rims + rear break pad :D
So I need to get the Gear from "Fiorano Service Center"

today i receive a call from the garage "sir the car is working and u can receive it tomorrow".

So what did i ask the garage to-do:
1- change the clach
2- there was a broken shaft (change it)
3- change the gear oil (there was a lot of grain in it)
4- change the gear box down filter/vessel

and its work!!

that better than change the hole gearbox which cost lot..
(i will try to post some parts photos)
