916 Gearbox problems

HELP, I am a new convert to AR, I bought a 1997 2.0TS Spider a couple of months ago and really love it, but it has developed a problem with 2nd gear. I had it looked at and I'm told the 2nd gear syncro hub has gone, I can still drive it, but need to have the car almost at a standstill to select second, all the other gears are fine. What options do I have? is it a new gearbox type of problem or is there a cheaper fix? to be honest if its expensive I'm going to have to cut my losses and get rid as is, which is a shame as I do really like my first alfa!

GTV 2.0

Hello, welcome here... I have a similar year GTV and I worry about my gearbox too!!!

Unfortunately yours will have to come off the car (expensive by default...) and be repaired or replaced... But look on the bright side, you can also remove both of the balancing shafts and thus gid rid of some unwanted weight and reliability risk (please ignore me)
