Oh No.
My gearbox has the same symthons. It is hard to change gears (esp 4) and it is very noisy when i engine brake in 1st to 3rd gear. Not least of all in the diff there is a lap so when you drive slovly in 1st gear and let of the gas pedal there is a big klonking sound. It is hard to describe in english!!! The question = Do i need a rebuild or not. (changing oil did not help)

Anyone with a boxer should check the gearbox oil every 25,000 miles. At 72,000 I changed mine, It improved shift & reduced noise a little. But box is in good shape, except reverse can need a double declutch to engauge. I'm considering getting any linkage bushes changed.
