Getrag gearbox selector fork
I was wondering if anyone has encountered breaking a selector fork in their R53 with the Getrag? If so where we're you able to find a new part or did you just end up buying a new gearbox? Part #285.9.0328.90 it's out of a 2003 R53 Getrag MT285 gearbox. The car got stuck in 6th,so I put him up and pulled out the trans today, pulled it apart and found the fork had broken. No damage to the gears or anything, actually besides the fork, everything in the transmission looks quite amazing after 120k miles. Hardly any wear. I've attached a photo so you get an idea of what I'm talking about.

I don't see a pic...but if it's what I think it is, I have seen it happen before.

After much searching, I did manage to find a repair shop in the UK that specialises in gearbox repair and they had some used parts. I'm having them flown over to my shop, so hopefully sometime next week ZB will be rolling again.
