More than lucky !

With refernce to my apparently 'dead' gearbox, a garage said "Your diff bearings are shot mate". Well after locating a gearbox I thought about all the posts Iv'e read on gearbox oil ... So I checked it... first with my finger in the hole and then a probe... Nothing not a drop. So I topped it up, and then the fault became obvious as oil started to pour out of the nearside CV Gaitor... However on moving the familair sounds said nothing had been solved. So some time later I set off again to pick up the new gearbox... you could have knocked me out with a roled up copy of exchange and mart!, noises gone gearbox behaving itself perfectly... Yee Haa. Moral of tale, check your oil , oh must not forget to replace oil seal and fit a new CV Gaitor.. Thanks for the help people !
