    f23 gearbox problems

    i have lost 2nd gear in my astra gsi tonight.
    the past few days it has been jumping out o gear.
    now when i put it into gear i get the clutch out but soon as i touch the accelerator it crunches and jumps out.
    what could this be? my mate thinks it could be the syncro what do u guys think and what would use reccomemd doing to fix it?
    cheers bob

    Be the syncro mate. I lost 3rd gear in mine and cost a fair bit to get fixed but if you can get the box off yourself you can save a bundle!

    I think the 2.2 and diesel boxes have a motor or something in in a diffrent position so not sure there any good but I'm sure someone will confirm. The gsi is an f23af and the coupe turbo is a tr but both have the same ratios so if you can find someone breaking either they'll both work.
