Depends when your car was made. Mid 2003 rover switched from the r65 box to the ib5.

Any VIN number past '3D 720773' will have an IB5 gearbox.

I will add that the 1.8 petrol models and any diesel was fitted with a pg1 box as it was a stronger unit.

Mines 4d 745641 so that would be a ib5?

Yeah in that case it should be an ib5 gearbox.
I take it either your box has gone bang or your clutch is on its way out...

Okay thanks. Think my clutch isn't far from going out to be honest mainly wanted to know because of the linkage I would like to fit new bushes as the car doesn't seem to change gear very well almost like there's nothing there.

Yeah I know what you mean. When I got my zr the bushes had dissolved in the linkage UJ.
It was like stirring soup. I got the pg1 box in mine so I changed the bushes in the linkage and the gear stick and now it's a crisp clean selection.

The rubber bush on bottom of the gear lever often fails.
This thread has some repair options - I`ve tried the old ht lead one, working fine 12 months on
