Thanks guy. Checking the problem out by many other companies is going to cost a lot.
Each one charges for removing the gearbox, stripping it then finding out what it is.
Not sure about the validity of this, but a friends dad took his Hilux in to have work done on the gearbox and his mechanic showed him and my friend the difference between the parts on a Toyota and a Ranger and you could clearly see that the Hilux had much thinner metal and less solid parts on it. Like I said, I wasn't there and haven't seen it for myself.
All things considered that's not an insane price, just be glad you don't have an auto box, cost could easily be double that.So my gearbox is effed.
Yea, ofc you can
Phone a few of those people, I'm 100% sure you can get a gearbox for cheaper if doing it this way.
Nought!Normally the cover that has that sock thing on the lever covers a big hole in the car's body. (As all bodies are manufactured the same). So if you put in an auto box, you just need to add auto gear lever and cover.

Changing from manual to auto or going the other way is not a small job on modern cars, you basically need a donor car to strip all the interior parts/linkages/stick/pedals etc. Sometimes even a different ecu is needed and a fair amount of wiring. Also the cars papers will say auto and now it's a manual or vs/vs, resale value may suffer.
Not a job for your normal diy boffin.
What part did Mayfair say had failed?
That sounds like it could be a collapsed bearing .
