:ohmy: that dont sound cheap, if it was thrust bearing would it only do it in the 2nd to third gear, if it had only just started to go???

sounds more like a worn 3rd gear syncro imo :thumb:

 

funny you should say that, a mate of mine said the same thing, any idea on price, or would i be better off getting a recon gearbox, and again any idea of price thanks

 

 

speak to heavyrightfoot aka wayne iam sure he would have a gd quality used unit he would do u cheaply and as for fitting it alldepends on your requiremnt once removed ie, ideally you would replace clutch and thrust bearing whilst gear box is out this is up to u but is highly recomended tbh and also labour rates at a garage where u live or weather or not u and your mates would be tackling this. the only specialist tool u would require is a clutch alignment tool if u was to replace the clutch itself.

 

i myslef would chrage around 150 for fitting/removal regardless of weather or not the clutch would be replaced as its not a long job to do.

so working on that.

 

say

50 for gearbox

70 clutch kit

150 labour.

270 ish

 

this is only a rough idea u could find it to be dearer or cheaper all depnends hope this helps :thumb:
