    Any info will be greatly appriciated

    Well mine's gone on an 03 plate with 41000 miles !
    The boxes in these cars are pants.
    Is it manual or auto ? If it's auto £500 is ok , if it's manual that's steep. Make sure you get a warranty with the box , even a 3 month one will do.

    It's a manual...£500 included fitting. Trying to source a re-con. Don't really wanna trust a second hand one thats only done 30K (thats what a friend of a friend reckons its done)

    I'll do some ringing round and let you know how I get on

    Cheers guys

    Other than the cogs there is only the casings which basicly makes a gearbox.

    I think you would be better getting a second opinion as to loose complete drive could be as easily be fault of the clutch. If it is the gearbox find out which transmission you have and have a look on eBay you can get a few bargins on there. Its still a realy big to swap the gearbox tho.
