    Gearbox help!

    friday night i drove down a speed ramp down about 30mph and i hurd a massive bang, pulled up and my car was 'Shacking' so turned off the engine, and started it and the engine moved 3 inches ford and back! so pud it down to an engine mount! sat morning got it on the ramps and it was the bottom gearbox mount where the 14mm bolt goes through had snaped!

    I no there is no way of welding wat would you do?

    1) buy need box and new clutch
    2) get a scondhand box and new clutch

    car is a mk4 GSi and 57,000 miles

    i got a 1.1 pug 106 im ragging about now and not doing my street cred any good!
