    Default Gearbox question. Please read thanks

    Hi everyone and welcome, I have recently joined. My name is Paul and I have a lightly modded Vectra C, Its a 2.0 Dti Sxi. I from Dundee and im 21 (Who cares about that info though lol). Anyhow my third gear has completely gone. My clutch was going and I was having to crunch my car into gear sometimes and In doing that I completely lost third gear. So once I got a new clutch and concentric slave cylinder fitted I took my beloved Veccie to Tayside Transmissions, ( A gearbox reconditioning/repair specialist ) and told them about my problem, then I asked them how much it would cost to repair my gearbox. The guy said to repair it, it would cost £120 if its a selector or dogtooth. He said they dont fit or remove gearboxes but he might be able to undo or remove the droplinks or whatever and remove the selector etc for an extra £80 (£200 in total) . So when he had a look at it he realised that it was a German made f23 gearbox and the whole gearbox would have to be removed completely by my personal mechanic then back brought to him. Now its a big hassle and gonna cost me even more money in doing so. I have seen a cheap f23 gearbox from a 2002 (non facelift) 2.0 Dti Vectra and was wondering if it would fit my 2003 2.0 Dti Vectra C which has a f23 gearbox? Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    should do - can't see why not. can you phone your local Vx dealer - they should say yes or no.

    I always pretend that they will get the work if they tell me lol

    This is everything I have bought in the last month or am still needing . Most of the damage happened when my clutch went, I broke down, then my car got vandalised. Starting with rear lights (they even had the cheek to nick my brake/tail bulbs etc ) 1 front nearside headlight unit, a new gearbox or my current 1 reconditioned, mirror glass and possible mirror, front bumper, 1 tyre, power steering pump, clutch kit including concentric slave cylinder, heater controls, heater vents, locking wheel nuts, bulbs, rear wiper arm, mot and tax have just expired and I want to book it in for a full service, a good polish, and most cost effective has been the labour, oh yes labour has cost me and still will cost me a fortune on the jobs i have had done and am still needing done.
