    I found this:
    http://www.farhangsara.com/cars/xantia.htm

    The ratios look ok (except for the low 1st);
    3.45
    1.87
    1.28
    0.95
    0.745

    but a diff of 4.71?????

    But then it's got 185x65/15 tyres, which are considerably taller than the 195x55/15 as fitted to Mi16's.

    4.71/4.43 = 1.06 or 6%

    Default Not the same Engine?

    Thanks peter but it doesn't look like the same engine. the Mi16 has max power of about 114 Kw @ 6400 and max torque @ 3500... if I remember correctly so the iranians are not driving citroens with that engine which, along with the wheels might explain the different gearing.

    Actually I am going to try welding up the hole and refitting with all the mounting bolts and see what happens..... At least a fellow pugnut who also owns a SII Mi16 and who is an aircraft welder used to patching holes in lycoming crankcases that have had rods through them is going to do the patching... and I have nothing to loose and should at least get a chance to source the right box to replace it.

    Cheers

    These ratios are for Citroen Xantia 2.0 16V models in Iran.

    UK Xantia 2.0 16V (XU10J4R) models have the following gear ratios:

    1) 3.454 (11x38)
    2) 1.869 (23x43)
    3) 1.360 (25x34)
    4) 1.051 (39x41)
    1) 0.795 (44x35)

    FD = 4.16

    185/65/15 (Rolling Circumference = 1.895 meters)

    Does anyone here know the pinion and crownwheel numbers of this FD set? (4.16)
