thanks Hans, but not needed (fingers crossed), I took it to Kaspa Transmissions on the advice of Mike at Tristram and their view was that the box wasn't the problem and to get the brake issues sorted and then to reassess the issues

so took it to Endeavour Motors who replaced rotten brake vacuum hoses and fitted new front discs and pads, they checked the gearbox oil and said it looked good, so I picked up the new passenger's door lock from TGristram today and will probably fit it on Saturday, then off to the testing station for a WOF check

fitted the new lock yesterday, finished too late to go to the testing station, went today and with the replacement of a tailight bulb - flew through

so much for a $4,000 gearbox replacement   :P ::)

the battery was a bit flat as it had sat for a while, so I took it on a run up to Albany and back, on the uphills at 100K it was shuddering a bit,

talked to Steve at Endeavour when i took my Golf in for a warrant and he said it was most likely inner CV joints and it might go away with a repacking of grease

a quick google didn't show up anything useful, is this an easy job?
