    depends on the price of a gearbox, search the breakers.

    mine went and with me mates use of gareage took us 3.5 hours to change recon box cost me £480 cash exchange but the problem is finding them as breakers get them out as fast as there in but get a recon one and ask if they have moddified the rivets in the diffs crown pinion to bolts which vw now supply a kit for as the rivets are a common downfall of the boxes and shear.
    not a huge task to do i also put in a new clutch.
