Hi..there..
In all honesty your mechanic sourcing a secondhand or reconditioned gearbox is by least the best way forward on this..the time and parts needed to strip down and repair the gearbox if possible.would certainly be the most expensive route..not alot of people nowadays opt for that option of strip down due to the expense and time - but rather source a reconditioned gearbox or secondhand one - where the replacement gearbox can just be installed there and then - unless you have local gearbox reconditioning company to give quotes on reconditioned the gearbox thats one it..the best way is what mechanic is doing now by source a secondhand unit provided its in working condition
