    hello! It is something terrible. I got my gearbox broken and I asked some guys to repait it. But they told me it was not possible. How is that?

    Sometimes easier to replace with a second hand box. Gearbox repair can be specialized and not all mechanics will do it .

    a second hand box? can it be found online? or does auto service can provide me with it? sorry I am new with that((

    just end a call. these guys told me that could transport a new gearbox in a few months. is it ok?

    Many places online depending on where you are.Depends how long your driving it with the fault as it might beyond repair.

    What type of gearbox?

    Right first off what car, what year, model, auto or manual, diesel or petrol....



    Had a primera it went in, mechanic got 2nd hand one and fitted for€250.

    It was a 2001 on 70k miles on it, ended up with fire brigade for training so it never drove after box changed.....

    I had one done for a 2010 Citroën Berlingo done for €350. New ones are a crazy price.

    I am not sure but you can make it much easier. Without spending sums. Check https://at-manuals.com/ and figure our if it's possible to fix your gearbox or not. It also may depend on the type of transmission of your vehicle. I used to own 68rfe and I found the solution for that one
