Laguna 1.8RN 'R' Gearbox woe's

Well maybe I spoke to soon, This gearbox always had an odd problem that, while on a motorway journey it would roll (not Jump) out of fifth, just leaving your hand on the gearstick would prevent this. Well after curing the above faults by having oil in the gearbox! The fifth gear problem continued and then one day fith disappeared all together!, I have no idea as to what the soloution maybe (apart from a new gearbox), but have read elsewhere in the forums that the gearlinkage arm can be a pig to get into the right position after gearbox exchange, does anyone think this maybe the problem?
Oh and on another note just had to replace the starter motor took hours, Firstly to FIND the blinding thing, what a stupid place to fit it !
