Was just looking for some advice, I have lost third gear in my GTV all other gears are fine, but third is completely goosed.
Was quoted upto £1k to get a new gearbox and clutch by 2 indies.
Ive contacted breakersyard and can a few others and can source a 2nd hand gearbox for anything between £175.00 and £400.00, I have also got a garage that could do the work if i get the gearbox.
Thing is I just want to ask you experienced guys, does this sound like a new gearbox job or perhaps something else on the gearbox, I dont want to garage and tell em i think my gearbox has gone, as they'll take me to the cleaners. Is this problem sympotmatic of a goosed gearbox or just a component?
Any advise will be gratefully received.
