Well it looks like you guys were right! I'll get some pics up when my phone has charged up. It seems that fifth gear is shot... The synchromeshing teeth are no longer in a decent state at all and there is scoring on the inside edge of the selection collar after removing that... Plus there were a tonne of swarf pieces inside the shaft...
Looks like you can get the parts on eper - Part Number 60810923. Can anyone confirm please?? Hopefully alfashop to the rescue for a new one - unless anyone else knows another source for one...!
Thinking about whether I need to replace other bits too - any thoughts?
Just on the process, is it simply undo the nut, gear puller to get the old bits off, keep what I need and then push the new parts on or am I missing something? Need the correct torque value for the nut if anyone has one...! Plus still need the correct torque values for the end case if anyone has them...
Thanks in advance guys...
