Shunt-o-matic!!!! 

Never knew such a thing existed. 

That's all I know apart from he said it was twice as pricey as a manual. 

He only passed an auto test.

Ooh a Silver Combo. Like the Calibra 15's, should be a good wee van. Give a few years of reliable serv.... 

Wait a minute..? 

Easytronic gearshifter....!? 

*Shudders*

Long story short. Genuinely didn't know it was a thing and I had a Corsa C with the same gearbag. Wasn't a fan, to put it mildly. 

But should do your mate a turn. I also had a Combo and it was a great wee van.

Yeah i think it is but classed as auto. Maybe on the Sri model it was a sport* feature. 

 

Will admit I did lust over one of those when they came out.

Your spot on. It's a GM F13 gearbox with bits added on. 

So the selector is auto controlled and the clutch is done by a ECU controlling the slave cylinder. 

That's what the clutch pack look like. 

Which gives the most bother. That packs up and you get the flash F of doom on the selector indicator on the speedo. 

Can be fixed though. ECU testing did my one, but pretty sure someone on YouTube will have a DIY guide to fixing them by now?
