void in gearbox

Postby tee3peeo » 19 Jul 2018, 15:11

Rolling around under the van when I noticed this void in the gearbox. Should I be worried? Should it have some sort of bung or equipment attached?

Cheers for any advice,

Google "t3 syncro getriebe" images.

I think its a redundant pocket in the casting for the decoupler.

Its the decoupler switch hole, unmachined and unthreaded.

many thanks silver bullet :ok
I assume it doesn't go anywhere and doesn't need to be plugged?

No, the two holes would only connect to each other at 90 degrees once drilled for the actuator rod. The pilot pockets are pre-cast. No blanking plugs.
