    That's awful news. Keep an eye out for a secondhand unit. It won't help much with the cost but maybe a bit. Paul

    So is this just because it pulls and makes the noise?
    Could someone close by to you lend a hand in looking at it?
    I mean it might be "just" a CV joint or something... or has some gearbox minded confirmed the worst has happened to it?

    Also Yes, 74K is low for a G/Box.
