    As my gearbox decided to try and get rid of all it's cogs through it's casing on Friday /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif I am currently looking for a new (or recon) one.
    I have just spoken to the garage thats doing the work and the best they can find so far is over £1000!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
    Is this about right /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif or are there cheaper around (for '98 1.8TS)

    Any Help would be great as I also have to try and pay for my Wedding at the end of the month (bad Timing)

    Try these guys http://www2.1stchoice.co.uk/

    They'll find the part you need from breakers in your area. The service is free and they quote the price with delivery to your door.

    Hope that helps.

    ta for that, found one (eventually, after getting the right gearbox code)for £600 less than quoted by garage /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif. Should turn up tomorrow and be on by the weekend (with new clutch).

    Will try and get photos of old one to show where crack was /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif.

    Thanks again /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif.
