Brera 2.2 JTS - Gearbox issue on Primary Input?

Hi there,

I have read some posts, and it would seem that I've 'won' a known gearbox issue ...

Some noise at motorway speeds in 6th.
Whining when 1st & 2nd gears engaged - clutch in or out. Primary shaft bearings?

Anyway, I need to get it looked at and wonder if anyone has been down this path before...

1. Any Surrey/ Hampshire/ Berkshire gearbox specialists recommended?

2. I'm considering getting the gearbox out on my drive with trolley jack/ axle stand access - can this be done without too much drama.

3. Has anyone rebuilt this box? I understand it's an M32 type. Is there a way of upgrading the failed bearings. Is a recon box the way forward?

4. Any special tools required?

Any help or advice most appreciated.
