Xsara Picasso gearbox

Post by Z1ggy1987 » 09 Jan 2018, 15:56

Hi, I am in need of a replacement gearbox for my car and I’m not sure what gearbox code I need to be looking out for, I have done some research and found out I think need the 20dp29 but what else will fit my car, I was told by a scrap part dealer that most of them Will fit my car.

My car is 2007 Xsara Picasso 1.6 hdi 92bhp.

Please help!!!

Hi Andy
Andy-Xsara-Picasso-Engine.png
The Part number for the new Gearbox is 2222 QS
The Part number for the exchange Gearbox is 2223 ZF

I've used both as this may help when searching for a replacement. These are the genuine Citroen Part numbers for your vehicle.

Thanks for the information, is that only from Citroen?
I’m thinking of just going to the scrap yard and picking one up.

Andy, these are the part numbers from Citroen - but these are also used if searching a breakers - so you can ensure you get the right Gearbox. I'm not suggesting you get it from Citroen - but having the correct part numbers will ensure you have the right variation.

i.e.
https://www.proxyparts.com/car-parts-st ... id/971035/
https://bartebben.com/parts/citroen/xsa ... 0dp2j.html
https://www.autoricambiservice.com/orga ... 6000_87433

The Gearbox should also have the following marking on it:

CP 19X72
DPB9, DP29 or DP2J

Thanks, most of the gearboxes i has enquired about are 20DP29, this seems to be the only information that I am getting when ringing around.

A Citroen breakers told me that most boxes fit and offered me a DP27 and said that would fit, I presume this would not be the case?

Really appreciate the help

All I can tell you is that these are the official markings and parts Andy - I suspect some will likely try and flog you what they can without being 100% certain. DP27 is NOT one of the markings for this model. You could use a online parts search like these:
http://www.partsgateway.co.uk/parts/enquiry
Just use your reg - and then enter one of the part numbers I supplied you - they'll do a search and email you details. You can then check against the info I posted.

If I find a gear box with the markings DP29 should that be good enough? Especially if it has come from the Xsara Picasso 1.6hdi.

What does the 20 mean when they put 20DP29

Andy - it is very important you get the correct one as the DP setting refers to the Diametral Pitch - a ratio equal to the pitch diameter of a gear in inches divided by the number of teeth in the gear. If this isn't correct it could well have an adverse effect.
