Yup

on the way back home from work on Thursday night i blew my gearbox to tiny wee pieces

turned into a junction, nailed it in 3rd, and *PINGGG* gearstick hit my leg, lost 1st - 3rd & 5th..

managed to limp home at 30mph in 4th
its comming off the road for a while now, gonna buy a Megane for 400 as a runabout until Thunder is fixed 340bhp and running new wheels/tyres transmission, paint, and general look

so wish me luck as me and Team Thunder (MattB, Ed, Beardy & ME )

Gutted!

Were you running six speed?

I've had a couple of drama with mine, once the linkage shat itself (won't be doing that again!), and once a mount ripped from the floor! Also that won't be happening again as the Usher has made a random super mount.

Both times it got stuck in gear!

Just hoping its not your box gone!

Good luck with the project
