    Default 5th gear pops out...

    I own a Vectra C 2.2 Dti 2003 GTS for around a year and a half and i've been very pleased with it until 2 months ago, when arriving home I noticed that the 5th gear jumped out

    I went to Opel here in Portugal and was diagnosed that i need a new 5th gear, synchro and some other minor things....
    I've waited for almost 2 months and they said to me" we still dont hava a dedline for spare parts arrival"
    There I had enough of the subject and decided to withdraw the car from the workshop and try to find for a used gearbox for it.
    Now i can't find it anywhere here in PT

    Anyway, my question is:
    -After read a lot over the web i noticed that the gearbox GM F35 is made by Saab.. is this true??
    I'm asking this because i find a used Saab gearbox (FM57 503) , and someone told me that the 5th gear is the same as mine (GM F35/ GU 13101871) altough the ratio are diferent... 3.82 for saab and 3.61 for GM.

    I think i just need a 5th gear and synchro and thats all, but still have to get a 2nd opinion on the gear...

    Sorry my english... i now it is bad
