Clutch was done last July already, and feels in good nick still, although the rough feel on the gearbox can be felt a bit, don't see how a clutch only 9 months old would need doing.

How about for gearbox alone, or is it negligable? 8 hours seems a little high to me.

8 hours = 1 working day to change a gearbox is about right

Remember whilst having a ramp does make it easy you still have to remove quite a large item from an engine bay that is not the largest in the world

it should only take 5-6 hours in workshop 8 in garage without a ramp ididnt see original post whats up with box
4th wont select, 3rd is stiff as hell.. The feel of the box is pretty bad. I have my doubts about doing the temporary fix (i.e swarf removal) as I had that done a year and a half ago and there is no guarantee it will last if I go down the route again, so I'm leaning toward installing a new box and getting the selector shaft machined.
