Would appreciate your thoughts on what this could be.

About a month ago, I started to notice increased noise from the transmission, but only in 4th gear. This grew worse over a couple of days until 4th became unuseable - sounded as if I was driving a motorbike when in 4th, but all the other gears were ok. I continued to drive the car, but avoiding 4th gear. More recently, all the grears now have developed a rubbing sound - I thought for one minute that gearbox had lots it's oil.

Mitsi dealer has checked it out and said the grearbox has gone, but no other detail, and quoted a stupid amount of money for a new box. The car is only 3 months out of warranty so I'm persuing a goodwill claim, but doubt the result will be in my favour.

What could the problem be, what should I pay for a second-hand box (E8 six speed), or should I have a rebuild?

Any competent specialists around South Gloucestershire?

If they won't cover as a goodwill gesture i would seek the advice of a specialist. It seems that the going rate for a 6sp box is £1300 - 1800.
