Balance shaft end cap oil leak... gearbox off?

This all seems plausable but I'd check with you lot first

An alfa specialist had a look at my oil leak from underneath and pronounced it to be the balancer shaft blanking cap. Unfortunately he says the gearbox has to come off to get at it.

I also have the 3rd/4th gear selection problem and seeing how a different alfa specialist's fix of taking the end cap off the gearbox and cleaning out the swarf lasted a mere 6 months I thought I'd have the selector shaft sorted properly - if anyone wants the explanation I was given of why the cleaning fix is a waste of time I will post it.

Seeing as both jobs need the gearbox off it makes sense to have them done together. I just want to check if it all sounds kosha before I shell out 400 notes.
