Problem: potentially overheating GTO gearboxes.
There is an official Donkervoort factory upgrade on the all aluminium GTO gear box protector cover. The T5 gearbox operating temperatures in some cases reach an unacceptable high temperature level, which could damage your gearbox and reduces the quality of the gearbox oil fairly quickly. Therefore the Donkervoort factory now officially removes all GTO aluminium gearbox covers to allow the gearbox to cool down in operation temperature via the normal air flow under the vehicle. If you still have yours fitted, we advise you to remove the cover a.s.a.p. either at the factory or at your Donkervoort service point of choise. The normal chassis tube protector protects your gearbox suffiecently.
