Hi all this is my first post I have a 99 year ghia model diesel estate just a standard workhorse. I noticed it a while back that it developed this problem and it worsens the longer you drive the car i.e. pulling away from lights in 1st is a grind and driving at 45mph changing up to 3rd it usually does the same it almost as if you are only half pressing the clutch. I took it to some shoddy looking gearbox mechanic and he hardly looked at it and said £395 for a gearbox rebuild its "probably the syncro rings" ? Is he rigt or wrong is this price right or could it be something else the only other comment I could make is that it feels a bit lumpy going up to 1st and 3rd the first lump is where the grind starts and the second lump is when its finally in gear. [confused]
