Will 156 gearbox fit 147??

Hi all,
I'm finally getting around to doing the gearbox in my 147 (1.6) as it's crunchy going into third, and has finally begun to pop out now

I'm planning on fitting one from a breaker, and hoping that I don't have the same problem with that one (I don't have time to strip the breaker's one to check it, I need this for hols in a few weeks).

Basically, I've located a gearbox from a 1.8 156, and I'm wondering is it the same box as the 1.6L 147? I know they're quite similar under the bonnet, but just not sure?

Any help appreciated.

yes the same box is used on all 1.6 1.8 2.0 TS's, but make sure the one you get is from a 1.6 or the ratios will be different, killing your acceleration.
