Hi Gerry,

I have taken my car to 3 garages and they all insisted on replacing the gear box. I've kept your advice that the gearbox shouldn't be replaced in mind and I started searching online and I finally found someone who said that he could revise the gearbox and just change the faulty parts instead of changing the whole thing. I've paid 2400 euro which is reasonable compared to the price of changing the gearbox. Thank you so much for your advice, take care!
