Help please anybody? My old 218 turbo diesel (excellent car!) has had a noisy gearbox for the last 20k miles or so. Slowly getting worse, and by now really noticeable - particularly on overrun.

Does anyone have any idea where I could get a secondhand box to swap in, or is it worth trying to fix the dodgy bearing in this one? I am guessing it's on the input side of the box.

If I have to swap it, are there any restrictions on what other boxes from the 200 series might be useable? I'm assuming ratios, and final drive ratio, may vary. The engine BTW is the 1800 version - looks like a Peugeot unit. TIA
