Hi Everyone, I seen a post on here a while of someone asking how to change their 200 from a 5 speed box to a 6 speed but they didn't get any responses. Anyway I decided to give it a go and change my own NV-200 to a 6 speed so here's a little guide on what I did and what you'll need.

Firstly here is a list of parts you'll need, be aware, the parts list did get a little costly so I bought all the bits I needed over the space of a few months.

6 speed gearbox (obviously) make sure your new box has the mount on it, you will need this.
Clutch kit plus bolts
Flywheel plus bolts (the bolts on the 5 speed clutch and flywheel will not fit so you will need these)
3535
3536
3537
3538
3539
3540
3541
3542
3543

Slave cylinder
Slave cylinder pipe
Rear engine mount
Gear lever
Gear selector cables

All the parts will have to come from either a dealer or used from another 6 speed 200, except the flywheel, I found the Nissan Juke and Pulsar use the same flywheel so this made finding a new (used) one so much easier. I bought the clutch, slave cylinder, slave cylinder pipe and engine mount new but the rest were used parts. If you get dealer parts you'll need the reg from a 6 speed, I just got a reg from a vehicle auto trader.

I've done all the work on mine this morning and it was pretty straight forward, everything was a straight swap with very little fettling needed.

I've driven it round for one day but already I think it's so much better than the 5 speed. The dual mass flywheel really smooths it out and its so much quieter without the engine like crazy in every gear.

I hope people find this useful.

Hello everyone, how are you doing? I am interested in changing the gearbox to my 85cv nv200, is it the smallest engine, the conversion of the tutorial in which engine is it made? could it be done on mine? I am interested because I also want to put a self-locking differential to give the van more offroad traction and for the 6-speed gearbox (TL4) the self-locking renault clio would be worth it, thanks for your help

well done mate,do you think the 6 is more robust than the 5 speed...My 5 speed has just disintegrated, cracked casing, oil everywhere
Not sure about more robust, I swapped the gearbox not long after buying the van however I work at a Nissan dealership and we hardly ever see any of these box’s fail.

The engine in mine is the lower powered 1.5 Diesel engine.

Hi everyone from Italy!
I just buy a NV200 1.5 90cv. I have a question about difference between 5 and 6 gearbox . The final gear of 6-gearbox at same speed has lower rpm than final gear of 5-gearbox? I use this car for long travel, and I think saving 100/200 rpm could help me a lot at 120 km/h.
Thank you.

Hi

What gearbox did you use on it as I can't seem to find a Nissan 6 speed.
A search on eBay came up with a Vauxhall gearbox that supposed to be compatible

Cheers

The gearbox was hard to find, there doesn’t appear to be many out there. I eventually found mine on eBay. Might be worth searching for a 6 speed van that’s breaking for spares.
I’ve just checked that Vauxhall box, it looks nothing like the one I used so I don’t think it’ll fit. Renault use the same 1.5 diesel engine on pretty much all Their models so it might be worth looking into whether their box’s are the same too, they might be easier to find.
