I have been having problems with my gearbox 2nd is a nightmare keeps popping out only when cold. Also does it in first when pulling away and makes a loud bang and pops out does this warm or cold.

Would I be better in getting a second hand gearbox that I don't even know fully works or just get mine rebuilt?

Cheers!

I think a re-build will cost more than a guaranteed second hand box tbh.
Although I've never used them, if you were to get one from a reputable breaker like the guys who advertise here, then that would be your most cost effective option.

Quarry Motors yeah?

Just that I have found loads on flee-bay £55 cheap... So whats the genral cost of a good second hand gearbox... Didn't know how much a rebuild would cost...

Just waiting until the clutch goes and replace it all at the same time...

Not looking to buy at the moment but cheers was going to look for one off a Z3 M44 as it has a short shifter attached.
