While I have time, I can tell u that it is not a straight forward unbolt the box and it slides out!
I did not take the engine support member out, so the box snags up on it, so I needed to skew the motor on the remaining top mount (the bottom 2 mounts were unbolted/removed) until the motor was nearly touching the A/C pulley on the RHS chassis. It still needed persuasion, so I suspect I will have great fun trying to get it back in the same way.

Has anyone had a similar problem? Failure of the manual Box in a 2.0l 147 TS ? 2006 car with only 80,000 kms????

Ahh, yes. I've put one together which I could email to you. But to be fair, if you have got the skills/nowse to fix a gearbox you shouldn't need it if you've done any other euro front drive box. No special tricks or tools - just number the bolts as you take them out as they're different lengths.
I'd be thinking that it'd probably be quicker and cheaper to go to a wreckers...

Forgot to mention, the gearbox fault I had was a circlip on the selector shaft. The gears ate it and the fragments ended up on the magnetic drain plug. About 150,000km when it failed.
