In the Patrol Referance Document (found on this forum) it states the series 1 and 2 GU's are affected. Series 3 onwards are ok.

I think the box on a zd30 is the FS5R50B, the FS5R30A was from the 2.8 diesel and I think the 3.0 GQ petrol. I think the bad gearboxes were in the 1999-2000 range. I have a 98 TB45E series 1 which has no symptoms yet. The GQ had the same box which did not have the problem either. If you search you will find an excellent thread with pictures detailing the problem.

The upgrade was in 2002, don't know month though, but both boxes were being sent out around at the same time. You would need to put up a Vin# to get a true indication. Mine is definitely the weaker one and it is on it's way out.
